Samsung Reveal Galaxy S10 & Foldable Phone Launch Date

Samsung has announced the date of its next Unpacked event, at which it is expected to reveal the long-awaited Galaxy S10 and officially debut a fully functional foldable phone.

Many had expected Samsung to reveal the devices at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but it appears Samsung is changing things up for their 10 year anniversary of the Galaxy S series.

The event is scheduled to take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on Wednesday, February 20th at 11:00 am Pacific Time.

Wall Street Journal has reported that Samsung will also be debuting a “fully functional” version of its foldable phone, rumoured to be called Galaxy X or Galaxy F, at the Unpacked event.

The news came out as invitations were sent to press followed by a video posted to Twitter shortly after.

The invitations and launch video depict the number 10 and colours which some are speculating could be the colours of the upcoming devices.

The middle line in the invitation appears to be the edges of two curved devices side by side which might hint at two separate phones — leading many to speculate that the S10 isn’t going to be the only highlight.

The tagline for the video “welcome to the next generation” hints at the next-gen foldable device as well as the expected radical update in the design of the S10.

The Galaxy S10 will feature a complete redesign, almost completely eliminating the bezel, leaving only a slim bezel above and below the display, a hole-punch front-facing camera, or cameras on the S10+.

The next-gen device is also expected to include next-gen processors, significant camera upgrades, Samsung’s new UI interface — which they revealed in a blog post — and ultrasonic fingerprint sensors embedded underneath the screen.

One UI boasts an interface that is easier to read and engage with

Also on the table for the event are three variants of the Galaxy S10 with a fourth 5G model expected to launch later in the year.

MWC 2019 is expected to host a huge range of 5G smartphones and related tech, so potentially Samsung could save its promised 5G S10 model for Barcelona.

Samsung remains the world’s largest seller of mobile devices, but rival Huawei is coming in strong after usurping Apple with innovative devices. 2019 is set to be a solid year for Samsung if they can deliver on their devices.
