South Korean technology giant Samsung has hinted that it may have plans of unveiling its foldable smartphone at the Galaxy Unpacked event that is scheduled for February 20. On Sunday, the smartphone maker issued a press release in South Korea that marked the placement of two Galaxy Unpacked event banners.
It is worth noticing that these banners were written in Hangul and have been placed at Place de la Concorde of Paris. For those unaware, Hangul is the Korean alphabet and Samsung has mentioned that this is the first time that it is being used for outdoor advertising by the company.
The press release shared by Samsung reveals that the banners have ‘Unfolding the future’ written on them. This is a very big hint that the company may be planning to launch the foldable phone at the Galaxy Unpacked event.
But then at the same time, the company hasn’t openly said that it will be launching its foldable phone or Galaxy F at the Galaxy Unpacked event, so some may argue that the foldable phone will be launched along with the 5G variants of Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. However, we feel that if the company has used the phrase ‘Unfolding the future’ to publicise the event, it means that the upcoming event on February 20 will include the foldable phone too.
We should also mention that this is in-line with the recent report in The Wall Street Journal, which stated that Samsung will b be launching its first foldable phone at the Galaxy Unpacked event. However, The Wall Street Journal did not specify whether the company will just showcase the device or officially unveil it.
This coupled with the latest indication from the company has given us all the hint that we need to conclude that Samsung will be taking wraps off its foldable phone on February 20. While it isn’t clear if the smartphone maker will be launching the foldable phone, what we do know is that Samsung is definitely launching the Galaxy S10 smartphones at the February 20 event. Samsung’s foldable phone first got showcased at the company’s developer’s conference in November 2018 and it also made an appearance at CES 2019 this month.
