While the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus are a shoo-in, it's less clear if we'll get to see the fabled folding device Samsung's been working on for the better half of a decade.

We'll have to wait and see for a true 5G smartphone connected to a 5G mobile network to find out just how much better 5G will be than what we have now.

Supposedly, we'd hear more about all of Samsung's device sometime in mid-to-late February, when Unpacked events usually take place.

At their conference at CES 2019, Samsung pushed connectivity across all products, using their own home brand voice-assistant and AI technology in your vehicle so you can enjoy a "connected auto experience" with its new Digital Cockpit 2019 and Bixby.

Meanwhile, the schedule for the release of Samsung's first foldable smartphone hasn't been confirmed, a high-ranking Samsung official said.

A Samsung tweet, accompanied by a teaser video, confirms a Galaxy Unpacked event for this date. Tthe current S9 is 5.8 inches, though, with the smaller bezels on the upcoming models, Samsung will be able to accommodate a larger screen in a similarly-sized chassis.

"When unfolded, Samsung's foldable phone does not show any crease indicating it had been bent". It could also appear during Samsung's Galaxy S10 event.

Trade shows such as CES have a lot going on out on the floor of all the booths but the really interesting stuff often happens behind closed doors.

THE year 2019 will witness a revolutionary change in the form factor of smartphones, led by South Korean tech titan Samsung Electronics' launch of its first foldable display phone that could be a game-changer for the stalled global smartphone market. If you have some ideas based on this invite, please put them in the comments below. Huawei might use MWC to unveil its first foldable handset.

Samsung Space Monitor leverages its sleek design and functionality to allow users to focus on what's on the screen and not what's around it. But could there be more to look forward to than the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+? The phone's display cycled through a canned demo which showed off some of its functions, though it did not show its 5G capabilities in the process, which is probably why very few people were interested in it.
