Losers of the week: Unpacked occasion with out a cellphone

On Monday (18) Apple introduced the brand new MacBooks and AirPods, on Tuesday, Google launched the Google Pixel 6s. Samsung, not eager to miss out, additionally invited individuals to an Unpacked occasion, nevertheless, we didn’t have the announcement of the long-awaited Galaxy S21 FE. In truth, we did not have the announcement of any cellphone in any respect, however of a customization service for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 mannequin.

Do not get me incorrect, the so-called Z Flip 3 Bespoke Version is extraordinarily welcome, because it gives the gadget in as much as 49 new colours, however did it actually deserve an Unpacked occasion? As my colleague Rubens Eishima rightly identified: “So anticlimactic”. Why?

Samsung’s Unpacked occasions are at all times extremely anticipated, as we get the launches of the producer’s most important smartphone or pill strains. Nonetheless, with gross sales of the Z Flip 3 above the curve, rumors point out that the South Korean big has held again the launch of the Galaxy S21 FE in favor of the foldable that appears to have caught the general public’s graces. That might clarify an Unpacked with no new cellphone.

And to make issues worse, in lots of international locations like Brazil, for instance, Samsung disclosed the occasion on its official web page for many who had been following reside to search out out on the finish that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 Bespoke Version is not going to be accessible within the nation! So “anticlimactic” certainly!

And it’s with this flopped occasion that I shut the column this Sunday! So, what do you consider this week’s decisions? Share your opinion within the feedback of this text.
