The next Samsung Unpacked event comes alive July 26 at 7am ET/10am PT, with the company hosting a live event at its headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. At the same time, Unpacked was to be live streamed on the company’s website Youtube channel. Based on the artwork for the event (and online rumors and leaks), it looks like Samsung is touting that something big will be in the works for the Galaxy brand later this month.
