Samsung has pretty much confirmed that its foldable phone will take the stage alongside the Galaxy S10 at its Unpacked Event.
Just recently, the company tweeted a 15-second teaser video that notably features a date and says, "The future unfolds." It also uploaded one on YouTube that's 27 seconds long, but it doesn't really reveal anything more than the one posted on Twitter.
Samsung's First Foldable Phone
The device in question goes by a lot of names. At times, it's known as the Galaxy X, and in other cases, it's called the Galaxy F, which might stand for Galaxy Flex or Galaxy Fold.
Going by the aforementioned clip, it appears that Samsung is now getting ready to officially unveil it on "02.20.19."

For those who don't know, Samsung is scheduled to hold its Unpacked Event on Feb. 20, where it's going to take the wraps off
the highly anticipated Galaxy S10. It's also worth noting that a live stream of the show will be up on the company's website
Not much is known about the Galaxy X or Galaxy F, but on an interesting note, there has been a report that says
a prototype of the phone breaks when folded all the way.
Sure, Samsung did show it off
onstage once in November 2018 at the Samsung Developers Conference, but it was way too dark to see anything else besides the UI and folding mechanism.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S10 is arguably the company's worst-kept secret. That's because the rumor mill has been up and about in churning out one report after another regarding the smartphone.
For starters, live images of it have made the rounds
online, and this came at the same time as the first leak of the Galaxy Buds, the successor of the Gear IconX, which showcased the long-rumored reverse-charging feature.
The under-display fingerprint reader also appeared then, and before that, the punch-hole design was more or less confirmed
in leaked press renders.
To boil things down, the Galaxy S10 is almost as good as official already. All that's left is for Samsung to unveil it.
