Samsung has announced dates for its next Unpacked event, which will take place on July 26th at 7AM ET. The press release makes it obvious that new foldable smartphones will be unveiled at the show, which will presumably be the Galaxy Z Flip 5, and likely the Z Fold 5 as well. In addition, leaks suggest that a Galaxy Watch 6 reveal will take place, along with news on the latest Galaxy Tablets.
The flip-style foldables in Samsung’s lineup are expected to include lower-profile hinges, with the Flip upgrading its tiny second screen to something much larger.
For the first time, Samsung has some serious competition in the foldable genre, with Google recently releasing its own Pixel Fold and Motorola resurrecting the famous Razr brand of handsets in the form of the Razr Plus.

On July 25th, Samsung will begin preorder reservations for the new devices, entitling a $50 credit once a preorder is placed, with only a name and email address required to sign up.
UAE’s du Teams With Huawei For Net-Zero Telecom Services
The telecommunications company aims to promote sustainable development across the region.
du, one of the UAE’s major telecom providers, is boosting its efforts to help the Emirate towards a low-carbon future. The company aims to upgrade its diesel generator sites in remote communities and has ambitious plans to achieve net zero in collaboration with Chinese tech giant Huawei.
The primary goal for du is to reduce reliance on diesel generators, which in turn will cut down on maintenance costs and lower fuel consumption. Over 300 remote sites will be upgraded to advanced hybrid power solutions, lowering the company’s carbon footprint while improving efficiency and network coverage. Huawei’s hybrid generators include state-of-the-art lithium batteries and will reduce carbon emissions by over 10,000 tons – the equivalent of planting 500,000 trees per year.
“This initiative not only lowers our carbon footprint but also ensures the delivery of more eco-friendly and sustainable services to communities in even the most remote desert regions,” explained Saleem AlBlooshi, chief technology officer at du. “Our unwavering commitment to environmental responsibility reflects our determination to contribute to a greener and more sustainable future for all”.
