Samsung’s August 2021 ReleasesSeptember 28, 2021
Samsung has quite a few new releases this month that many are excited to get their hands on. The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 Classic will be the latest in Samsung’s lineup of smartwatches. As we have seen previously with Samsung smartwatches, there will be two different sizes for both the standard and classic versions of the watch. The Galaxy Watch4 seems to be marketed by Samsung as the sportier option for people looking for an activity tracker or a smaller price tag. This one has 4 different color options (black, green, silver, and pink gold) and they are all aluminum casings. The size options for the Watch4 are 44mm or 40mm. The Watch4 Classic has fewer color options (just black or silver) but larger casings coming in at 42mm or 46mm that are made of stainless steel. The Watch4 has a retail price of $249.99 while the Classic option starts at $349.99. The Classic version does look more similar to a standard watch while the Watch4 has more of a smartwatch appearance. Both versions of the watch will cost an additional $50 for the 4G LTE connectivity versions. This is also the first time we will see Google Maps, Messages, and YouTube music support on a Samsung wearable.
Along with the latest Galaxy watches, the long-awaited Galaxy Buds2, Samsung’s truly wireless bluetooth earbuds. The Buds2 have active noise cancellation and they come in four colors (white, black, olive, and lavender) with a retail price of $149.99. Samsung calls them their lightest design yet out of their extensive Buds lineup.
Finally, Samsung’s latest folding smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3, will also be available. The Fold3 dual-screen version has a retail price of $1799 for the 256 GB option and $1899 for the 512 GB option and has black, silver, and green color options. The smaller single-screen Flip3 version that folds in half (and is more reminiscent of the folding phones of the early 2000s) retails for $999 for the 128 GB option and the 256 GB option for $1049. The 128 GB option comes in an impressive 7 colors (black, white, cream, green, gray, lavender, and pink) while the 256 GB option comes in 4 standard colors (black, gray, white, and pink).
All of these releases were unveiled at their August 11th Galaxy 2021 UNPACKED event and have an expected release date of August 27th.
