Samsung shares new foldable smartphone teaser ahead of February 20 unveiling

  1. Samsung’s next Unpacked press event takes place in just over a week where the company is expected to reveal its first flagship of 2019, the Galaxy S10 (and its multiple variants).

    The gathering is likely to draw more eyes than usual as Samsung is additionally planning to share more details about its first foldable smartphone.

    Tentatively dubbed the Galaxy F by the media, the handset will utilize the Infinity Flex Display technology first teased last November. Samsung even demonstrated a working prototype of the technology but disguised it behind the mask of darkness and a chunky case. Justin Denison, SVP of mobile product marketing, promised, however, that the device is stunning.

    There’s a lot riding on the success of early foldable phones. If done right, it could indeed be the next major innovation in the smartphone industry. If clunky, gimmicky or far too expensive, consumer interest will quickly wane and it’ll go down in history as another promising technology that failed to make a splash.

    Samsung’s Unpacked event takes place on February 20. It’ll be streamed live over the Internet starting at 11 a.m. Pacific. Mobile World Congress kicks off a few days later on February 25 from Barcelona, Spain.

    I'm excited to see what it will be like, but probably (definitely) won't buy it

    It will be nice if all the screens can be rotated 180 degrees to accommodate both left and right-handed folks....Let us see if Samsung is intelligent enough to include that feature in this foldable phone!
