We’re a little over a week away from the expected massive Galaxy Unpacked event on February 2019, but Samsung has released a teaser video that shows off what appears to be a book-shaped device. Is it a phone? A tablet? Perhaps a phone that turns into a tablet? Do the words “the future unfolds” mean anything to you?
I’m pretty sure Samsung wants your imagination to run wild as it makes you hold out a wee bit longer before Unpacked.
From notched displays to fancy sliders to punch-hole displays, it’s been an interesting two years. Foldable devices though, may just be the next wave of new innovation to set the tone of 2019. Samsung gave the world a first look at its “Galaxy X” or “Galaxy F” foldable screen device last November.
While with details mostly hidden as the device was showcased in the dark, it did demonstrate how the device could collapse from a tablet form factor into a closed book.
On a similar note, Xiaomi, a couple of weeks back, teased its very own foldable device, too.
So, Samsung is hardly alone in this race. Expectedly.
It’s unclear if Samsung’s foldable device will get a full launch at Unpacked in San Francisco, as the leading Korean smartphone maker would not want the next-gen device to upstage the Galaxy S10.
Speaking of which, the Galaxy S10 family will comprise three models – the standard Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and entry-level Galaxy S10e.
