Samsung UNPACKED 2022 website confirms event date and time for the reveal of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8 series
Samsung is now allowing people to reserve 'the next Galaxy Smartphone' or 'the next Galaxy Tablet', not-so-subtle references to the upcoming Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8 series. As we discussed on Friday, Samsung is offering a US$50 credit towards other Galaxy products if you reserve a spot to pre-order either model. Please note that Samsung is only running this promotion in the US and not other markets.
So far, Samsung has confirmed it will host a Galaxy Unpacked event next month, albeit without announcing when it will do so. However, @TechInsiderBlog has discovered a date within the company's UNPACKED 2022 website. Also, Samsung has included calendar invites for Google, Outlook and Yahoo. None are viewable on the UNPACKED 2022 website, but the Google Calendar invite link is functional.
As the screenshot below shows, Samsung's 'Get Ready to Break the Rules' event will start at 15:00 UTC on February 9. Additionally, the invite states that this Galaxy Unpacked event will be a virtual one, which people can watch on Samsung's main website. Presumably, the event will be pre-recorded, as the last Apple Event was in September.
The @TechInsiderBlog adds that Samsung will release the Galaxy S22 series on February 25, with pre-reservation and pre-booking opportunities open between February 14-21 and February 21-24, respectively. It is unclear where @TechInsiderBlog has received this information from, but it could be elsewhere within the UNPACKED 2022 website.
