The ‘Galaxy Unpacked Part 2’ event has been confirmed by Samsung. The event will take place on October 20th at 10 a.m. ET/ 7:30 p.m. IST. Samsung didn’t give many ideas about what it’ll show, but it did say it’ll show how the company is letting more people to “express themselves through technology.” This could indicate that, rather than all-new Galaxy phones, we’ll be seeing variations on old ones.

Samsung’s announcement of the event in its newsroom teases some form of personalization for Galaxy devices: “Our users are diverse, and they live their lives in a variety of colorful, entertaining, and distinctive ways. As a result, the technology people utilize on a daily basis should represent their unique personalities. On October 20, watch Galaxy Unpacked Part 2 to learn how Samsung is using technology to provide new ways for people to express themselves.” The teaser of the Unpacked Part 2 doesn’t reveal much, as it merely shows several app icons (Camera, Samsung Health, SmartThings, and so on) sliding across the screen into box containers. It’s possible that during the event, Samsung may discuss the next significant One UI update, which has already been seen in Android 12 betas for Samsung phones.
Between the back-and-forth chatter about a possible Galaxy S21 FE and the likely replacement of the Galaxy Note line, Samsung’s product range has appeared to be all over the place this year. Samsung is rumored to be working on a Galaxy S21 FE that would bring S21 features to a more cheap phone, but it’s unclear whether the handset would be released in 2021. Samsung is becoming increasingly reliant on mid-range handsets like the Galaxy A52, and may not feel as compelled to develop an S21 FE when the A-series offers a feature set that is near enough.
The company has been eager to extend platforms such as Health, and this could be an example of where those ecosystems are headed next. Samsung may concentrate on software and services and this could also be Samsung’s chance to show off upgrades to the One UI. Samsung just removed advertisements from its One UI apps, and we wouldn’t be shocked if the company has more significant OS updates planned before the end of the year.
