In lockstep with the official announcement of the next Unpacked event – now confirmed to be taking place on July 26 – Samsung has also opened up pre-order reservations for the slew of products expected to be unveiled at the show.
Pulling from the US reservation page, there's reference to "eligible devices" which includes "upcoming Galaxy phones and/or Galaxy Watches and/or Galaxy Tabs," and Samsung is also throwing on additional "reservation gifts," which in most cases means money off your order.
It should come a no surprise that the run of upcoming "devices" alluded to here have to be the company's next-gen foldables – the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, its next line of tablets – the Galaxy Tab S9 series, and its latest smartwatch, the anticipated Galaxy Watch 6 family.
As for the gifts mentioned, in most participating markets Samsung is offering money off your pre-order or store credit to spend in the company's online store. In the US, pre-order reservations benefit from $50 in Samsung Credit, while the UK offer stacks, meaning you can save up to £150, when pre-ordering and purchasing multiple products from this forthcoming product lineup.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5: latest news and leaks
- Similar price to the Z Fold 4
- Rumored new hinge design so it can fold almost flat
- Outwardly similar to previous model
- Upgraded camera sensors
- Likely to feature Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset
While Samsung reportedly has a lot of products waiting in the wings to showcase on July 26, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 – its most advanced foldable phone to date – is expected to be the star attraction.
While similar in general style, approach, and design to its predecessor – the Galaxy Z Fold 4 – the Fold 5 is rumored to sport a brand-new hinge mechanism that, unlike previous entries in the series, will allow the phone to fold almost completely flat. The first leaked hands-on photos to supposed feature the Fold 5 (which Samsung managed to have wiped from the internet) confirmed as much, while smaller changes include a reworked primary camera system and lead sensor, along with the expected adoption of Qualcomm's top-tier Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset running the show; the same SoC found in the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, which launched at the start of the year.
Thankfully, we have less than 20 days (at the time of writing) between the offer of pre-order reservations and the promise of new Samsung mobile tech, but if you can't wait that long, you could always check out our roundup of the best cell phone deals of the moment.
