Samsung’s mini roadmap for the next five months of product releases has leaked.
Well-known leaker Evan Blass shared the roadmap in a blog post on his ‘Voice’ platform. The timeline shows the Unpacked event for the Galaxy A72, A52 and A32, and an upcoming Tab S7 Lite announcement in June.
What’s most interesting about the document is the FE Unpacked event scheduled for August 19th. This would be for the S21 FE handset, which is based on the S21 series and is the successor of the S20 FE.
This leads us to believe that Samsung has likely ditched its Note series of devices entirely. August Unpacked events typically reveal Samsung’s Note series smartphones, and the fact that the FE device is the main attraction is a significant shift.
Further, this likely means that Samsung won’t officially unveil its Galaxy new foldable smartphones until at least September, backing up previous leaks.
Samsung launching its next foldable smartphones, including its rumoured more affordable Z Flip, makes a lot of sense. It seems like the company aims to compete more directly with Google and Apple, which unveil their flagships in September/October.
Blass is nearly always accurate, but Samsung’s release plans could easily change over the next few months. That said, if this leaked timeline is accurate, it gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect from Samsung’s smartphone lineup this year.
