Samsung's foldable smartphone, which it (sort of) showed off last year, may have been spotted in a leaked video accidentally published to the Samsung Vietnam YouTube channel.
In the video, a number of futuristic devices are shown alongside the Galaxy S9$799.99 at Verizon Wireless. They include augmented reality mirrors and windows, bezeless tablets, an ultrasound scanner, and a smartphone that unfolds like a book.
Although the video has now been deleted, a number of people managed to download and reupload it:
Samsung's foldable phone, which some are calling the Galaxy F, is rumoured to cost $1,770, potentially making it one of the most expensive phones available. It will will have a 1,536-by-2,152 resolution display when unfolded, while the smaller "cover display" on its front measures 4.5-inches and has an 840-by-1,960 resolution.
Although many smartphone companies will be revealing new devices at Mobile World Congress later this month, Samsung's Unpacked event will take place on Feb. 20 in San Francisco - a few days before the show. Alongside the foldable phone, we also expect to see the Galaxy S10, which will reportedly come in three models and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor.
It's unlikely that Samsung's foldable phone will remain the only one coming to market from mainstream manufacturer. Both Huawei and Xiaomi have teased their own bendable devices. Huawei's design is yet to be seen while Xiaomi, standing apart from Samsung's book-like folding, is building a phone that folds in two places rather than just one.
