Recently, a 15-second promotional video of Samsung‘s upcoming Unpacked event on February 11 that teases two potential flagship phones was leaked, first seen on Max Weinback’s social media.
The leaked promo reveals two shapes that block out the two letter A’s on the word Galaxy: a rectangle and a square. Curious. We’re thinking they’re the Samsung Galaxy S11 and the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 respectively.
The Samsung Galaxy S11 is the next iteration of the Korean tech giant’s flagship smartphone, which builds on the success of the Galaxy S10 and its other forebears. Visual renders made by OnLeaks and 91mobiles reveal that the S11 will continue the trend of squared camera cutouts, while retaining the Infinity-O Display that its predecessors possess.
While we’re still pretty much in the dark about the S11, we hear that it may boast a shiny new 120Hz refresh rate to one-up the likes of the Google Pixel 4, as well as a massive 108-megapixel sensor on the main rear camera (another trend that has been on the rise lately). What’s more interesting is that it might be dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S20 instead.
The other shape suggests that a sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Fold may be announced at the Unpacked event, though this one is a little more unlikely. Regardless, image renders have already been circulating on how the Galaxy Fold 2 may look like.
It seems that, if the Galaxy Fold 2 is indeed a reality, Samsung might be incorporating a clamshell mechanic (not unlike the Motorola razr’s) instead of the original’s fold-out feature. In terms of other features, the Galaxy Fold 2 is rumoured to have a more durable flexible glass display, as well as a more accessible sub-US$1,000 price (via The Verge).
Of course, all this is currently speculation. All will be revealed at the Samsung Unpacked event itself on February 11.
In other Samsung leaked news, it appears that a Lite version of the Galaxy S10 may be announced, either at the Unpacked event as well, or at the upcoming CES 2020.
