That's if Samsung's latest teaser is anything to go by.

The company released a new teaser today, on its YouTube channel (the main one, based in South Korea), which shows off both the Galaxy Tab S6 and Galaxy Watch Active2. It doesn't show a whole lot about these two devices, other than a silhouette of them. But at the end, it depicts that the Galaxy Tab S6 will be announced on July 31 (tomorrow) and the Galaxy Watch Active2 on August 5.

That means that Samsung is doing two pre-Unpacked launch events for these devices. That either means that Samsung has a lot to talk about with the new Galaxy Note10 models on August 7, or Samsung wants us to focus on those two smartphones during Unpacked, and not these other products. Either way, it's going to be an exciting week, with three announcements

The Galaxy Tab S6 seems to be first, being announced tomorrow. We don't have any idea when Samsung will announce it. It's likely going to be a press release by Samsung, in the morning. At the end of the teaser, it does say that "date and time is based on EST", so expect it to be in the morning on the east coast when it is announced. The same would go for the Galaxy Watch Active2 next Monday.

Both of these devices have leaked out quite extensively in the past few weeks. The Galaxy Tab S6 a bit more than the Galaxy Watch Active2. So we do know a decent amount about both devices already.

Galaxy Tab S6 is going to sport a 10.5-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage on-board. It'll also come with the S Pen, but it looks like it'll be a redesigned S Pen. A bit of a flatter one this time around, as it attaches to the back of the tablet. Instead of going inside the tablet, like it does with the Galaxy Tab S4. It will also charge wirelessly from the back of the Galaxy Tab S6. Giving a pretty unique look.

Then there's the Galaxy Watch Active2. Which many still are in disbelief that it will be announced next week. This is because the Galaxy Watch Active was announced in February with the Galaxy S10, so it's a bit too soon. But according to leaks, that's what we're getting. It's going to come with a few new colors, as well as buttons that are more flush. Otherwise, it looks to be about the same as the Galaxy Watch Active that is already available.

We'll know more soon enough on both of these devices. Samsung has basically confirmed some of the leaks we've already seen for both of these devices, like the S Pen attaching to the back of the tablet. So there's likely not going to be many surprises when these two devices are announced within the next week. It's going to be a pretty exciting week for Samsung fans out there.
