Samsung confirms Unpacked event with ‘cryptic’ puzzle on August 10th

In a trio of shots posted to its official Twitter account, Samsung Mobile seems to have secured the date of its subsequent Unpacked event as August 10th, 2022.

The first image shows a grid of letters, numbers, and symbols, while the second offers the grid replaced with colored circles.

Compare the characters to the colors, and you can decode the note on the third image as 081022 as August 10th, 2022.

This date streaks with a recent leak from Evan Blass, who published an image from Samsung that also suggested a launch event on August 10th.

The encoded message is escorted by a rhetorical question: “When will something greater arrive?”

The two initial images combine to furnish a solution for the third.

As for what we’ll notice at the event? Currently, rumors indicate the announcement of Samsung’s next-generation foldable and smartwatches.

There’ll be a Galaxy Fold 4 and a Galaxy Flip 4, as well as the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro. Samsung has yet to ensure the launch date in non-cryptic form officially, but this “puzzle” seems pretty clear cut.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a South Korean global electronics corporation, is headquartered in Yeongtong-gu, Suwon, South Korea. It is the height of the Samsung chaebol, accounting for 70% of the group’s revenue in 2012. Due to circular ownership, Samsung Electronics played a vital role in the group’s corporate governance.

Samsung is a major manufacturer of electronic elements like semiconductors, image sensors, lithium-ion batteries, camera modules, and displays for customers like Sony, HTC, Apple, and Nokia. In addition, it is the world’s most extensive manufacturer of mobile phones and smartphones, commencing with the original Samsung Solstice and, later, the favor of its Samsung Galaxy line of devices.

Samsung has been the world’s biggest television manufacturer since 2006 and the world’s biggest manufacturer of mobile phones since 2011 when it exceeded Apple up until 2021. It is also the world’s most considerable memory chip manufacturer and, from 2017 to 2018, had been the largest semiconductor company, briefly dethroning Intel, the decades-long champ.

In 2012, Kwon Oh-Hyun was established as the company’s CEO. However, he announced in October 2017 that he would resign in March 2018, noting an “unprecedented crisis.” The business had 3 CEOs from March 2018 until December 2021, when the business units were reorganized and replaced by Kyung Kye-Hyun and Han Jong-hee. It has also had a distinct regional CEO, HC Hong, who led the company in Southwest Asia from 2015 and then shifted to Latin America in 2020.

Samsung Electric Industries was founded as an industrial part of Samsung Group on January 19th, 1969, in Suwon, South Korea. At the time, Samsung Group was named to the South Korean public as a trading company specializing in fertilizers and sweeteners. Despite the shortage of technology and resources falling shorter than the domestic competitors, Samsung Group enhanced its footing in the manufacturing enterprise by cooperating with Japanese companies.

A decision instigated a significant amount of anti-Japanese public outcry and massive backlash from the competitors fearing the outright compliance of the industry by the Japanese. The strategy took off only after the government and Samsung announced that the company would exclusively concentrate on exports. Toshio Iue, the originator of Sanyo, played a role as an advisor to Lee Byung-Chul, Samsung’s founder, who was a rookie in the electronics business.

The same year, Samsung Electric designated a joint venture named Samsung-Sanyo Electric with Sanyo and Sumitomo Corporation. It is the direct predecessor of today’s Samsung Electronics.

The joint venture’s early derivatives were electronic and electrical appliances, including refrigerators, air conditioners, televisions, calculators, and washing machines. In 1970, Samsung launched the joint venture Samsung-NEC with Japan’s NEC Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation to fabricate home appliances and audiovisual devices.

Samsung-NEC later became Samsung SDI, the company’s display and battery business unit. In 1973, Samsung and Sanyo assembled Samsung-Sanyo Parts, the predecessor of Samsung Electro-Mechanics. Samsung Electric had fabricated over 10 million black-and-white televisions.

In 1974, Samsung Group developed into the semiconductor business by earning Korea Semiconductor, which was on the brink of bankruptcy while making one of the first chip-making structures in the nation at the time. Korea Telecommunications is an electronic switching system producer and a Samsung Group company, carried over the semiconductor business and evolved into Samsung Semiconductor & Communications.

In February 1983, Lee, along with the committee of the Samsung industry and corporation agreement and aid by sponsoring the event, made an announcement later anointed the “Tokyo declaration,” in which he declared that Samsung intended to evolve a dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) vendor.

Furthermore, Samsung successfully created a 64 kb DRAM, reducing the technological gap between companies from first-world countries and the young electronics maker from more than a decade to approximately four years.

In the process, Samsung used technologies imported from Micron Technology of the U.S for the development of DRAM and Sharp Corporation of Japan for its SRAM and ROM. In 1988, Samsung Electric Industries merged with Samsung Semiconductor & Communications to form Samsung Electronic. Before that, they had not been one business or a top corporation together, but they were not rivals, as they had been in discussions for a time until they finally merged.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, Samsung sold personal computers under the Leading Technology brand. However, the equipment was manufactured by Samsung, and the FCC filings from this period typically refer to Samsung products.
