With Samsung's summer 2022 Galaxy Unpacked event now over with – where it revealed its latest folding phones, earbuds and watches – it's all about looking to the future for the next Galaxy Unpacked event.

We'll dig into that event in more detail below – T3's Unpacked live blog recap has all the highlights for a summary – to cover off the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4, Watch 5 & 5 Pro, and Buds Pro 2. It was indeed a bumper Unpacked for the summer.

But you might have to wait a bit of time for the follow-up Unpacked, because if the typical Samsung annual release cycle holds fast then it'll be the Samsung Galaxy S23 series that'll arrive next, likely in February 2023 (that's not yet confirmed and so there's no date to put in the calendar as yet).

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked February 2023: what to expect?

At the time of writing we're a whoooole six months away from Galaxy Unpacked 2023. That's almost an eternity in tech and, as such, nothing official is known about the next anticipated Samsung event. 

In years gone past Samsung would use Mobile World Congress (MWC), hosted in Barcelona, to reveal its latest Galaxy flagship phones. For 2023 that's likely to be the S23 series, but revealed at a dedicated event ahead of MWC. Prior to which we might see a Galaxy S22 FE model, perhaps at CES 2023, hosted in Las Vegas – although there's rumours that device may be dropped this time around.

So until more morsels of information are revealed, there's little to be said for what's coming at the next Unpacked event. In the meantime, read on below for a deeper dive into what's happened in the recent past.

Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked on 10th August 2022 revealed its best folding phones. Namely the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, both of which we've got first impressions reviews of on T3.

That wasn't all, though, as Unpacked summer 2022 was also the hosting ground to reveal the Galaxy Watch 5, 5 Pro, and the Galaxy Buds Pro 2, too.

The early-mid August date breaks the older cycle from when Samsung used to utilise the IFA tech show, hosted in Berlin, Germany, to present its Unpacked showcase. While Samsung will still be in attendance at that show this September, it'll utilise the showground to show off its newest products to as many eyeballs as possible.

10th August 2022

A bumper showcase, as ever, this Unpacked revealed the Galaxy Z Fold 4 large-screen foldable, the Z Flip 4 clamshell foldable, the Galaxy Watch 5 series, and the newest earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro 2. 

9th February 2022

The previous Galaxy Unpacked was back in February, its typical first half of the year slot, where Samsung revealed its Galaxy S22 range: the S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra. That wasn't all, though, with the company also revealing its Galaxy Tab S8 range in the S8, S8 Plus, and S8 Ultra.

11th August 2021

This Unpacked slot now looks to be forever more the 'foldables' release cycle, as 2021 was when the Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3 and Watch 4 series was announced.
