There’s one factor I am actually enthusiastic about – as TechRadar’s Running Man of Tech – to see right this moment.

In a recent blog post (opens in new tab) about innovation in wellness, TaeJong Jay Yang, EVP and Head of Well being R&D Workforce at Samsung Electronics stated the next when referring to the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked occasion:

“Samsung is worked up to proceed increasing our Galaxy Watch lineup to higher cater to the various distinctive wants of our customers — particularly these with a ardour for the outside.”

Now, you possibly can simply suppose which means the brand new Watch 5 goes to have enhanced health parts, or a barely greater bezel or one thing. However that is not likely going to alter the sport – Samsung has been making ‘fairly good’ health watches for some time, and making that increase means one thing higher.

So the rumored Galaxy Watch 5 Pro or Galaxy Watch 5 Rugged is the place I believe that is going – and that may very well be one thing to tackle Garmin. It will need an even bigger display screen, a lot better battery (my Fenix 7 can final 28 days and not using a cost in smartwatch mode) and improved GPS options.

So, come on Unpacked – let’s have a look at what you have acquired…

There have been numerous leaks concerning the new Z Flip that we’ll be seeing right this moment – and when you can by no means make sure of the validity of a leak till the system is definitely proven off on stage, we will be fairly assured that what’s leaked out is more likely to be reputable.

The primary leak got here from Amazon within the Netherlands, the place the specs of the cellphone had been unleashed onto the world. Now, we historically ignore these, as a retailer can generally put a product itemizing in its system in readiness, and do ‘greatest guess’ specs simply to have one thing holding.

These can generally go dwell, and subsequently are seen as reality once they’re not. However what seems extra lifelike with Amazon’s leak is the photographs – and there have been a whole lot of fairly accurate-looking advertising supplies revealed.

It appears numerous these have been redacted of late as Samsung appears to be shutting them down – however we are able to see said Dutch imagery over on Telegram (opens in new tab) if you wish to try a few of the dimensions.

I had a dream final night time that I used to be jogging down some stairs, jumped onto the banister, slid down a bit after which did a reasonably good spin onto the ground. 

A person checked out me, smiled and gave me the finger weapons. I felt good about it.

That is all – it was only a fairly good dream.

It is essential, when discussing leaked info, to all the time level to when the model in query – on this case, it is Samsung – just about simply reveals a video of one of many gadgets it is displaying off in an upcoming launch.

Now, I am no forensic knowledgeable (I do know a factor or two about telephones…) however you do not want a level to see the brand new Galaxy Z Flip 4 on this teaser from Samsung:

Let’s begin issues off with one thing of an fascinating rumor: whereas I do not suppose that is going to come back to cross, leakers have tipped that the Z Flip 4 and the Z Fold 4 are going to come as just the Flip 4 and the Fold 4, because the Z is being used as a military symbol in Russian attack on Ukraine (opens in new tab).

I doubt that can occur at this level as so many leaks have tipped them to nonetheless pack the ‘Z’ – but it surely’s an fascinating notice for the way manufacturers have to react to exterior occasions when contemplating how their naming conventions will go down.

Hey whats up! The solar is shining (nicely, relying on the place you might be and what time of day it’s) and it is time to prepare for one of many tentpole occasions of the yr: the August version of Samsung Galaxy Unpacked.

Spoiler alert: we’ll see some new foldable telephones right this moment. That is not me providing you with the within scoop or something… it is simply that Samsung has been so apparent about it that if it did not launch the brand new Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 right this moment, I would be totally and fully shocked.
