There’s simply no getting around it now: Samsung is about to unleash its latest and greatest smartphones to the world yet again. If you’ve been following this beat over the past few weeks, you might be expecting the new flagships to be called Galaxy S10 and so on. You could be right, but the Korea-based electronics giant just might reveal something that’s a little bit unexpected.
The company’s long-running Galaxy series of Android-powered handsets comprise some of the best-looking and best-performing phones available on the market today. These phones are built with top level specs and routinely outclass the competition. As such, the world eagerly awaits more of what has made the line highly successful so far, along with a sprinkling of proper innovation.
But in teasers for their upcoming launch event, Samsung seems to have chosen its words very carefully.
“The future of mobile will unfold on February 21, 2019,” Samsung proclaimed, “3AM Manila time.” That’s taken from a post they shared on their local Facebook page wherein users can check back and tune in to their official event livestream. We already know that the successors to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are coming, but could there be something else in store for everyone watching too?
There are rumors that Samsung may announce the very first retail version of its foldable phone along with the new flagships come launch time tomorrow. And the biggest clue so far — apart from all the leaks, of course — is that they literally used the word “unfold” in that teaser above. It’s like they’re dangling it right in front of our faces at this point.
That does seem to be what’s happening here, if we’re being honest. In any case, the event is set to happen in just a little over 11 hours from now, so you’d best set your alarm clock to wake you up at 3:00 AM Manila time to confirm or disconfirm any or all of your suspicions. By then, we will all find out for sure.
