He wrote, “We are out to set new heights and open up a whole new world of exciting experiences for even more people. I hope you’ll join us as we debut our next Galaxy Z family and share some foldable surprises — including the first-ever S Pen designed specifically for foldable phones. Instead of unveiling a new Galaxy Note this time around, we will further broaden beloved Note features to more Samsung Galaxy devices. In the meantime, mark your calendars and tune in to our Unpacked event on August 11 to see what unfolds.”
In addition to this, the speculated Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will also get popular apps and services from Google. For this, the company is working with Google to bring seamless and optimized experiences.

Samsung has collaborated with trusted industry leaders like Google and Microsoft to deliver mobile technology that is secure and optimized for today’s rapidly evolving and interconnected world. Roh added, “We constantly work with key partners to create cutting-edge security solutions that keep your devices and data safe every step of the way. This allows us to give you even more control over your apps, data and privacy, so you can curate your own experience — with total peace of mind.”
