Samsung’s Vietnam brand uploaded a teaser trailer for the long-awaited, highly talked about foldable phone design. It is heavily rumored that the long-awaited device’s big debut was going to be at the Samsung Unpacked event coming up on February 20.
Assumed to be an accident, the Vietnamese brand of the tech giant released the video to their Youtube account, and quickly removed it – not quick enough, though. Many people already saw the video and were able to re-upload it on the same day.
The video itself is very moving. Set to Doris Day’s 1956 hit song “Que Sera, Sera” (Whatever will be, will be), the teaser gives a glimpse into the future with multiple different types of futuristic technologies. This includes a smartphone attached sonogram, virtual reality video games, smart mirrors, and of course, the first ever foldable smartphone which makes its debut towards the end.
At the very end of the video, Vietnamese text is displayed on the screen that translates to “the new standards we created today, let you create tomorrow’s difference”, followed by the hashtag “#DoWhatYouCan’t”.
Samsung has been surrounded with so much buzz since the debut of the foldable phone prototype back in November, and the recent announcement of it’s new 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage 2.1 (eUFS) – the new chip has the storage capabilities of a PC.
One may begin to speculate if the “Galaxy F” will come with the 1TB storage option for consumers. At the release of the eUFS, Samsung’s memory marketing VP Cheol Choi said the intention of 1TB storage “[is to bring] a more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices,” which coincides with the purpose of the foldable device, as Samsung senior vice president explained the intent is “a new dimension to help you browse, watch, and multitask like never before.”
Whether the phone featured in the teaser is the actual model that will hit shelves, it seems pretty likely that will be the design shown at Samsung’s upcoming event. Until then, we’ll just have to anticipate.
