NEW DELHI: Consumer electronics giant Samsung is busy preparing for the launch of its next generation foldable smartphone and smartwatches. The company will reportedly host a Galaxy Unpacked event next month, where it will launch the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Watch 4 series.

The report further adds that the new primary camera will be a part of a 5-camera setup. The report also suggests that Samsung has partnered with Olympus and the camera on the Galaxy S22 will be co-developed with the camera pioneer.
To recall, Olympus is a Japanese manufacturer of cameras and optical technology.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S22 smartphone series in January next year. The report also adds that the Samsung Galaxy S22 will also come with S Pen support. It is also said that Galaxy S22 will be the first smartphone of the company to come with the Samsung/AMD GPU.
Recently, Samsung increased the price of its affordable M-series smartphone. Launched in February this year, the Samsung Galaxy M02 has witnessed a price hike.
