SAMSUNG could launch the Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, a Galaxy Watch and new Galaxy Buds at a huge hardware event on August 11.
That’s according to a leaked teaser image that’s appeared online.
The image was revealed by @FrontTron, a tech fan with a good track record when it comes to leaks.
The tweeted image says the event will be live streamed on the Samsung website.
It looks very similar to other Samsung Unpacked event teasers from past years.
The event apparently starts at 10am EST, which is 3pm BST.

As with all leaks and rumours, we won’t know for sure if the event is real until official word from Samsung.
Some Samsung fans had been predicting an August ‘Unpacked’ event.
They’re hoping to see the two new phones, a watch and earbuds, all of which are long awaited additions to the Samsung range.
Apple is predicted to launch its new line of iPhones in September so the leak suggests Samsung may beat it to the finish line with a whole host of new gadgets for 2021.
There’s hopes that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone could have some impressive hardware updates and be slightly cheaper than its predecessors.
Samsung’s new Flip phone is expected to get some minor upgrades, including a level of water resistance that’s so coveted in other smartphones.
