Samsung is set to announce its new Galaxy Z Flip phone tomorrow night during the S20 Unpacked event. However, it seems its marketing campaign kicked off a little earlier than expected after the smartphone maker aired a full Samsung Galaxy Z Flip advert during the Academy Awards last night. The ad basically showed off the whole device leaving nothing left to reveal at all.
Samsung is set to reveal three new Galaxy smartphones tomorrow including the Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy S20, and S20 Ultra. The ad, which you can watch down below shows off the new foldable smartphone looking very much like a Gameboy Advanced SP as it works its way across a table during a whole load of unfolding actions while on video calls with users.
The most notable part of the ad is where Samsung openly states “You may notice a small crease in the centre of the main screen, which is a natural characteristic of the screen”. Should we be prepared for another #Foldgate? It is unclear whether or not the new foldable smartphone will launch with issues out of the box as the Galaxy Fold did in 2019.
Stay tuned for all the new Galaxy Z Flip and S20 news tomorrow as the brand reveals the new range of smartphones hitting stores in 2020. In the meantime, take a look at the ad;
