According to foreign media SamMobile, Samsung Mobile Business Global Marketing President Li Yongxi confirmed that the next Galaxy Unpacked conference will be held in Seoul, South Korea. Samsung is expected to launch the new folding screen phones Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, as well as the Galaxy Watch 6 series of smartwatches at the conference.
As the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturer, in the past, Samsung usually held the launch of its flagship mobile phone in Europe and America. One of the few counterexamples is the Galaxy Note 20 series. Due to the epidemic, the conference was held in South Korea in an online virtual manner.
When asked by Yonhap News Agency why he returned to South Korea to hold a press conference, Li Yongxi said, “Because South Korea is very meaningful and important to Samsung.”
Li Yongxi did not disclose the specific time and location of the next Galaxy Unpacked conference. However, it is reported that the event may be held on July 26 at the COEX Center in Gangnam District, Seoul, which also means that Samsung will hold its flagship new product launch in the second half of the year earlier than before.
According to previous reports, it is reported that Samsung plans to sell 15 million folding screen phones this year, which means that it will be 60% higher than last year’s actual sales.
