Samsung announced a bunch of new hardware at its Unpacked event on 10 August, with the company’s foldables taking centre stage.
The new Galaxy Z Flip 4 arguably has the most mainstream appeal, while the Z Fold 4 could be the most accomplished phone/tablet hybrid yet. We also saw the new Buds 2 Pro launch, but it’s wearables that are the focus here.
There are still two models in the Galaxy Watch 5 Series, but last year’s Classic version has been replaced with a Pro variant this time around. Both are premium smartwatches with the specs to match, although the Pro adopts a different design and has a slightly larger face.
Pre-orders for both the Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro are live now, and it won’t be long before they begin shipping. We also have similar articles for pre-ordering the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4.
