Samsung Unpacked 2024 liveblog: Galaxy Watch Ultra, Z Fold 6, Z Flip 6, Galaxy Ring and more

It's time for gadget summer (and gadget Olympics).

Samsung

Gadget fall is starting in the summer this year, and things are kicking off with Samsung's second Galaxy Unpacked of the year. After its "Galaxy AI" event in January in San Jose, Samsung is taking its keynote to Paris, ostensibly to unveil a host of foldables and wearables. And it's likely no coincidence that the company has chosen the city that's hosting the Summer Olympics as the site for its launch this time.

In addition to probably the Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6, we're also expecting to see the Galaxy Ring that was teased earlier this year, as well as new smartwatches and maybe earbuds. The show kicks off at 9AM ET, and we're blogging the event live. You can also watch the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event in real-time, too.

    As expected, the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked showcase shed more light on the Galaxy Ring, Samsung's latest foldables, two new smartwatches and a couple pairs of earbuds.

    If you missed the livestream, you can catch up on demand. But in case you don't have time to watch it yourself, we've got all the big news for you right here. There's a lot to go through, so let's delve right into our look at everything that was announced at the July 2024 edition of Samsung Galaxy Unpacked.

  • Thanks everyone for tuning in, and don't forget to check back with Engadget for reviews of everything Samsung announced at Unpacked real soon.

  • But yes that seems to be it! Sam is about to run to the NYC event for some hardware pickups so make sure you stay tuned for our evaluations of the devices announced today!

  • TM Roh made a small Olympics shoutout, talking about his admiration of athletes who relentlessly pursue new heights. He also made comparisons to the new foldables, saying those also represent bleeding edge developments and lots of other platitudes.

  • Ok, well it looks like that's it!

  • Samsung partnering with the Olympics.

  • Osterloh is reminding us of "the upcoming XR platform" that Google, Samsung and Qualcomm have been working on "and you'll want to stay tuned on that." He's done talking about how much he loves working with partners, and is shaking hands (awkwardly in my opinion) with TM Roh.

  • Rick Osterloh, Senior Vice President of Devices & Services at Google, announcing collaboration with Samsung.

  • He's recapping some of the features Google launched on Galaxy devices first, like Circle to Search and "new ways we're bringing Gemini, the most helpful personal AI assistant, to your phone."

  • Google and Samsung have worked together for "well over a decade," he says. Which is true. Wear OS has been the result of the two companies collaborating to merge two wearable platforms. "As head of platform devices at Google, I'm deeply committed to this partnership," Osterloh adds.

  • Galaxy Z phones will have 7 years of security updates.
