Here we hope you are not worn out– This is the last day of the show, but Samsung has a lot of news. The South Korean electronics giant will broadcast its virtual unpacked event at 7 a.m. PT this morning, the last day of CES. You can watch it on Samsung’s YouTube page or hers , and CNET will host a live broadcast that begins 30 minutes before the event.
In its invitation from the beginning of January, Samsung mentioned “Welcome to the daily epic”
“Over the last year, mobile technology has taken center stage in everyday life as people work remotely and spend more time at home,” Samsung said. “The accelerated transition to the first mobile world brings with it the need for devices that can turn everyday life into an extraordinary experience.”
The January 14 date for Unpacked comes earlier than normal for Samsung. In the past, the company typically unveiled its latest flagship phone in February, shortly before or during the Mobile World Congress, and then launched the device in March or even April.
Samsung is likely to unveil three different models of its flagship phone at Thursday’s event: the 6.2-inch S21, the 6.7-inch S21 Plus and the 6.8-inch S21 Ultra. The devices are expected to look pretty much the same, but they look, enhance their photo and video capabilities.
The company may also discontinue its Galaxy Note line this year and replace it with S Pen support on its Galaxy S21 Ultra. Early renderings do not show a visible location of the stylus, which may mean that it must be placed separately from the phone when not in use. In Samsung’s popular but niche range of notes, the stylus slides into the storage device.
Along with the Galaxy S21 range, there may be some other announcements from Samsung. The company is expected to unveil something newand physically intelligent Tile-style trackers, probably called Galaxy Smart Tags, to help people keep track of their possessions using BlueTooth. Apple has long been rumored to be working on its own AirTags, but has yet to reveal anything on the scene.
