Samsung has teased a new Galaxy Unpacked virtual event on April 28 that will see the company reveal "the most powerful Galaxy" device, which very likely means new laptops rather than new Samsung smartphones.


The next Galaxy phones aren't expected to surface for a while yet. According to a report by The Elec, the company is set to launch a Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2 at a July event. Samsung has previously suggested it may skip releasing a new Galaxy Note device this year due to the fallout from the global semiconductor shortage.

However, Samsung's laptops are overdue an update, and according to reliable leaker Evan Blass, it could launch 11th-generation Intel Tiger Lake laptops under the Galaxy Book Pro line. The Intel chips include integrated Xe graphics, Thunderbolt 4, USB 4, PCIe Gen 4, and WiFi 6 support.

Rumors and recently unearthed Korean certifications also point to new Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 models running Microsoft Windows.

The notebooks are expected to sport nearly bezel-less 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch OLED displays, while the latter model is expected to feature a 360-degree hinge, as per the name, and possibly 5G connectivity. If you want to watch the Galaxy Unpacked launch event, tune into Samsung's YouTube channel at 10:00 a.m. ET on April 28.

Apple is expected to release new MacBook Pro models in the third quarter of 2021. For more on what to expect from the 2021 refresh, make sure to check out our dedicated MacBook Pro rumor guide, which has all the detail that we know about the new machines so far.

Probably one of those phones with hella lots of RAM, some crazy chip and features that would be not so much appreciated due to its OS

I think they will just be touting their CPU, just like Apple did. But of course it won't be as powerful as M1 lol

Most powerful Galaxy?
It's like.. would they release a less powerful one that last years? Of course it's going to be more powerful than last year's, thus the most powerful (right now).



... until next year of course, when they will release the most powerful Galaxy

Competition is always good no matter how lopsided it really is. Keep hating Samsung all you want, and see what hqppens to Apple if it has no competition. You should in fact root for Samsung to continue to churn out good products if you really want cutting-edge Apple products.

Is this Mac Rumors or Samsung Rumors? I'm confused

"Our news and rumors will continue to reflect Apple's business, wherever that takes us. We also cover stories of widespread interest to our regular readers, such as news and speculation about major software developers and third-party product and service vendors closely associated with or rivaling Apple."

^^^^^^ Exactly this.

Anyone who lived through Microsoft from about 1990 to 2010 painfully understands this.

Does anyone actually walk into a store as say "Man, gotta have me the latest Galaxy!"

That's even more embarrassing than asking a store assistant where the Surface RTs are.
If the products fit their needs and personal preferences, why would that be embarrasing?

Yes, lots of people buy, use and enjoy Galaxy products. I don’t see the shame in that. For us, people who prefer apple products, it’s beneficial to have Samsung as a strong competitor (also a supplier, let’s not forget that). Competition is always healthy.
