While the date of Samsung’s next big Unpacked event hasn’t been officially set yet, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a highly avid tech industry follower to anticipate the announcement of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 set to take place sometime in August. .
Instead, the world’s largest handset maker has named the two devices it plans to go into full detail next month with the actual e-vite sent to “its partners,” which is more than a little unusual. These are the rugged Galaxy XCover 6 Pro and Tab Active 4 Pro, which kind of explains why the tech giant doesn’t care as much about secrecy as usual.
