Hold onto your hats, folks, ’cause Samsung is about to unleash a storm of foldable goodness with the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, all set to dazzle in the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event! This is one showdown you won’t wanna miss, but let me warn you, it’s gonna be an early morning for those watching from the US.
Now, don’t let the fact that Samsung’s been in the foldable phone game for five years fool you. This time around, they’ve got some fierce competition on their hands. Google’s Pixel Fold, a $1,800 Pixel device, has decided to take a page from Samsung’s book, unfolding to reveal an inner tablet-sized screen. And rumor has it that OnePlus has its own foldable phone in the pipeline, ready to shake things up even more!
But that’s not all, my friends! Motorola’s back in the US market with its $1,000 Razr Plus, setting its sights on Samsung’s Z Flip series. This new Razr boasts a larger cover screen, giving it the power to run most Android apps like nobody’s business. Oh, and let’s not forget, Motorola’s got an even more affordable Razr model on the horizon, complete with a smaller cover screen.
And it ain’t just about phones, folks! Samsung’s summer Unpacked events always pack a punch with updates to the Galaxy Watch series. Brace yourselves, though, because this time it’s not just Samsung’s Galaxy Watch facing off against the competition – Google’s Pixel Watch is in on the action too! But don’t worry, despite their collaboration on Wear OS, Samsung’s got some tricks up its sleeve with its own software enhancements and shiny new Samsung Health updates.

Meanwhile, the Z Flip 5 is rumored to sport a larger cover screen, unlocking a world of possibilities when closed.
But that’s not all, my dear readers! Samsung’s got a whole bag of surprises to unpack.
