Samsung will launch five devices Aug. 5 at Unpacked, mobile exec confirms

From CNET: Samsung will introduce five new devices at its Unpacked event on Aug. 5, the company's head of mobile confirmed Monday in a blog post.

Tae-moon Roh, who took over day-to-day leadership of Samsung's mobile business in January, called the new products "power devices" and hinted that they're likely to include wearables alongside phones. Users will "live life to the fullest with these devices in your hand (and in your ears, and on your wrist)," he noted in a post in Samsung's online newsroom.

"These devices deliver on our vision to be the innovator of new mobile experiences that flow seamlessly and continuously wherever we go," he wrote. "They combine power with seamless functionality, whether you're at work or play, at home or away."

Instead of holding an in-person press event, Samsung will host a digital Unpacked event at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT on Aug. 5 to unveil its new devices. The plan follows similar moves by companies like Apple, which have shifted their events online during the novel coronavirus pandemic. Samsung, for the first time, "will be broadcasting live from South Korea," it said.
