Samsung's 'Galaxy Fold' foldable phone leaks out hours before official reveal

Multiple sources are showing what they call the "Galaxy Fold" featuring a new Infinity Flex display —and it comes with a notch.




Hours ahead of its official launch, images of Samsung's new foldable phone have apparently leaked online. Alongside the name "Galaxy Fold", the images also reveal a large notch for what is presumed to be the forward-facing camera.

While claimed to be renders rather than photographs, the images look as if they may be part of Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked presentation, scheduled for Wednesday.

Galaxy Unpacked is expected to showcase the Samsung Galaxy S10, but supply chain rumors have said and the company's own promotions have heavily hinted that there will also be a foldable phone. A version of this foldable phone was previously shown as a proof-of-concept by Samsung in November 2018.

During that demonstration, the phone was reported to be 7.3 inches in size when unfolded. Samsung claimed then that up to three apps can be used on the larger, unfolded display at the same time.

The new presentation is officially the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and will take place at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time , 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday. It will be streamed live on Samsung's official site from the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California.

While Samsung was the first of the major phone makers to demonstrate a foldable phone prototype, others are believed to be working on the same idea. That includes Apple which back in 2017 was rumored to be working with LG on a foldable iPhone for release around 2020.

The leaked images of the Galaxy Fold were first uncovered by SlashLeaks.
