In just a few hours from now, Samsung’s ‘IFA Unpacked Episode 2’ press event will begin in Berlin. It is widely expected that over the course of this event the company will debut several new products which it has been hinting at in the previous weeks. Check out our list below of some of these amazing devices about to be released!
1. Galaxy Note 4
The new phablet by Samsung, the Galaxy Note 4 is expected to be the star of the show at the IFA press event. The device itself is expected to feature updated hardware, a UHD screen and an improved stylus. It is also possible that it could be one of the first devices to use a curved screen edge to achieve a truly ‘bezel-less’ look. We will bring you all the news about this highly anticipated device as soon as it breaks.
2. Gear S Smartwatch
Other smartwatches released by Samsung’s competitors need a phone to be able to function fully, but not the Gear S. This watch features an inbuilt 3G antenna and SIM slot, enabling it make calls and send texts like a smartphone. In addition its curved screen brings some unique form factor to Samsung’s somewhat tired designs. Expect many people to praise this devices bold look, but perhaps criticize its lack of Android.
3. Galaxy Alpha
Samsung is expected to debut at IFA their first ever metal-cased smartphone, the Galaxy Alpha. This middle of the line phone features a 4.7 inch Full HD screen, octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 12MP camera, however it’s the metal band which runs around the side of the phone that has everybody talking. While many are glad that Samsung is finally opening up to the use of metal in its designs, the Alpha has been criticized as well for being too similar to the iPhone.
4. Samsung VR Device
While Facebook-owned Oculus VR has been putting virtual reality back in the public spotlight, both Google and Samsung have been working on their own virtual reality solutions. However rather than building a standalone system, Samsung has reportedly been working on a VR device which uses your smartphone’s inbuilt screen and processor to become the nuts and bolts of the device. Expect to see much more of this device in the days to come.
