Samsung announced New Foldable Phones, Tablets & Smartwatches

Samsung has announced a new line of foldable phones, smartwatches, and tablets at its second Galaxy Unpacked event of the year. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 are the most significant announcements, but the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Tab S9 lineups also received some important enhancements.

Galaxy Z Flip 5

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a larger 3.4-inch cover display that runs full Android apps. It also folds totally flat and ships with an upgraded Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. The screen on the inside remains unchanged, featuring a 6.7-inch OLED panel. Even with the bigger cover screen, the device will retain the same price as the Z Flip 4: $999.

Galaxy Z Fold 5

Alongside the Z Flip 5, Samsung also showed off the new Galaxy Z Fold 5. While this device doesn’t come with as many major changes as the Z Flip 5, Samsung has still made some improvements.

Similar to the Z Flip 5, the Z Fold 5 also comes with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip and an updated hinge that lets the device fold flat when closed. That means it’s a lot thinner than its predecessor, measuring 13.4mm thick (down from 14.2mm) when it’s closed shut. Other meaningful updates include a brightness boost to its 7.6-inch inner screen, which now sits at 1,750 nits. Despite these minor tweaks, the device still costs a hefty $1,799.

Galaxy Watch 6

The rumors were true: Samsung has officially revived the physical rotating bezel with its new Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. The updated watch comes in the same 43mm and 47mm sizes as the last generation (the Watch 4 Classic), along with a stainless steel case.

In addition to the Watch 6 Classic, Samsung showed off the standard Galaxy Watch 6, which the company offers in 40mm and 44mm sizes with an aluminum case. Both watches feature sapphire crystal displays and slightly larger displays. They’ll also ship with the latest Wear OS 4 and One UI 5 skin, which offer updates to sleep tracking, personalized heart rate zones, emergency SOS calling, and more.

The Watch 6 Classic costs $399.99, while the regular Watch 6 is priced at $299.99.

Galaxy Tab S9

Samsung has a new line of tablets: the Galaxy Tab S9, Tab S9 Plus, and Tab S9 Ultra. For the first time, all three tablets are getting OLED screens, as well as IP68 ratings for dust and water resistance.

The sizes on the trio of tablets remain the same, with the S9 sporting an 11-inch display. The S9 Plus with a 12.4-inch screen, and the Tab S9 Ultra featuring a 14.6-inch display. In terms of pricing, the S9 starts at $799.99, and Tab S9 Plus is $999.99, and the Ultra is priced at $1,199.99.

All of the devices announced today are available for preorder now.
