What day is the next Samsung event?

Despite confirming that the next Unpacked will arrive in February, Samsung has not announced an exact date for the conference. A report by Korean publication DDaily speculates that the event will take place on February 8. This lines up with earlier gossip from Jon Prosser, the founder of Front Page Tech and a well-known leaker (albeit with a mixed track record), who claimed Samsung’s next flagship phone lineup will be revealed on that day.. Leaker Ice Universe, however, suggests that the Galaxy S22 will be announced on February 9.

Earlier this month, before CES 2022, Samsung introduced its follow-up to the affordable Galaxy S20 FE, called the Galaxy S21 FE. The new phone is a cheaper version of the Galaxy S21 range with some smart features and spec sacrifices to hit a lower price point.
