Samsung’s last product launch was just two months ago, but it seems the Korean tech giant has enough shiny new devices to hold another Galaxy Unpacked event on March 17.

While Samsung’s official invite doesn’t tell us much, rumors has it new products will consist of a lineup of mid-range 5G phones, most likely a follow up to handsets like last year’s Galaxy A51.

With Samsung cutting prices by $200 on this year’s base flagship Galaxy S21, it will be interesting to see how aggressive Samsung will get when it comes to its next batch of 5G phones, considering the Galaxy A51 was Samsung’s most popular phone pretty much all of last year.

Additionally, I’m hoping Samsung offers wider support for mmWave 5G across its entire line of mid-range phones, because depending on what wireless carrier you use, like T-Mobile or AT&T, the A51 5G only came with support for sub-6Ghz and mid-band 5G. And with 5G coverage quickly expanding and people starting to commute and travel again, support for all the major flavors of 5G will become increasingly important as we move into 2022.

Currently, the Galaxy A lineup includes a price point for everyone: the $600 A71 5G, the $500 A51 5G, the $240 Galaxy A21, and the $180 Galaxy A11.

But with not much else to go on, we’re going to have to wait until this next Unpacked event for more news. Stay tuned for additional updates on March 17 at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT.
