Samsung has confirmed in the last hours the date of the next Unpacked event, which will be the appropriate setting for the presentation of the new range of Galaxy S10 smartphones. According to a recent report by the prestigious Wall Street Journal, the South Korean producer will use the major media showcase to present to the public also a fuller version of its first foldable smartphone. The source speaks specifically of a device with a fully functional folding screen.
The reference to the fact that it will be a more complete terminal than the one shown last November suggests that the company will show more clearly into which body its Infinity Flex Display will be integrated with a view to marketing the product. During the Samsung Developer Conference, the company had focused on the flexible display, making it clear that the prototype of the smartphone (partially) shown to the public would be modified in the coming months.
The 20th of February we will know everything
Next February 20th, therefore, we can take stock of the progress of the work, both on the hardware and on others, equally necessary, focused on software, remember that Samsung is working with Google to adapt the Android interface to the folding screen. It should not be excluded that the trade name of the product, so far also identified as Galaxy Fold, will also be revealed. However, this should be another advance and not the announcement of the start of sales, which will have to wait another few months, as an indication, as has been shown recently, during the first half of the year.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung will hold more than one Unpacked event on February 20: in addition to the San Francisco event, a second event should take place simultaneously in London. Samsung is therefore eager to capture media attention behind the Mobile World Congress, which will officially open a few days later (25-28 February, not counting the inevitable pre-opening presentations).
