There are so many questions surrounding Samsung’s very first foldable phone, a concept which would have felt many generations away just a few years ago.
Of course, we all want to know what this flexible miracle will look like, as well as how exactly it will bend. Rumour has it that it has not one but two screens, completely altering how we view the potential of smartphones.
Awaiting the unveiling of this mysterious, impossible slab of technology has set techies on edge as they listen for any significant rumblings from Samsung. But could it be that the big reveal is just around the bend?

Ahead of their Samsung Event on February 20, 2019, Samsung have delivered a highly suggestive tweet:
The future of mobile will unfold on February 20, 2019. #SamsungEvent
Although it hasn’t yet been confirmed, the use of the word ‘unfold’ in explicit reference to an event where new models will be revealed is telling.
Many fans believe this will be the day Samsung finally pull back the curtain on their foldable phone, alongside other brand new Galaxy S10 phones.
"Unfolds" you say? I think we're gonna get a foldable phone reveal. I love you.

As exciting as this intriguing update may be, it’s probably a good idea to start popping a few pennies in your piggy bank sharpish if you want one for yourself.
According to a November 2018 report from Gizmodo, the device is expected to cost between £1,500 and £2,000, making it one of the priciest phones around.
