  • Samsung will hold the next Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event in its home city of Seoul, South Korea.
  • This will be the first time the company has launched a foldable on its home turf.
  • In addition to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip5, we expect to see the Galaxy Watch 6 and possibly the Galaxy Tab S9 series.

For most of its history, Samsung has held its smartphone launch events in the United States and Europe. There have been some exceptions, including recently in 2020 when the company launched the Galaxy Note 20 series, which happened virtually in Seoul, South Korea. However, one thing we’ve never seen is Samsung launch a foldable in its home country.

That will change for the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked 2023. According to a machine translation of Yonhap News (h/t SamMobile), Samsung’s Lee Young-hee may have unwittingly confirmed that Galaxy Unpacked will happen in Seoul. Young-hee made the confirmation during a press Q&A at the Samsung Ho-Am Award Ceremony at the Shilla Hotel earlier today.
