So far, no one know exactly what Samsung's foldable device will look like. Retailer FTP Shop has the ceramic Galaxy S10 listed for VND 30,990,000, which translates to $1,333. This variant of the device will not only support 5G, according to rumors, but it will also ship with a ceramic backplate and 1TB of storage. The phone will be sold in a single 4GB RAM + 64GB version with a triple slot for accommodating two SIM cards and a MicroSD card at the same time.

There's also Korean text which wraps around an invisible block, hinting at a curved, foldable display on the the yet un-named Samsung foldable phone. Samsung was expected to launch its foldable phone - now called Galaxy Fold - on February 20 alongside the Galaxy S10 series smartphones. It seems more and more likely that the Ceramic Black variant of the Galaxy S10+ will become available a bit later than the rest of the pack, but all variants will be showcased on February 20.

In a teaser video for the event Samsung show a lot of folding, both in and out which may or may not be significant (we think not) and of course the tag line of "The Future Unfolds" is a dead giveaway that it is coming next week. The Galaxy S10e will be the most affordable Galaxy S10 handset, and the only one to ship with a side-facing fingerprint scanner, and a flat display.

Though we did see the foldable phone at Samsung's annual Developer Conference in November, what we saw then was only a prototype device. Going by the leaked information, the forthcoming device will be retaining design elements of Galaxy M20.

There could also be a limited edition of the Samsung's Galaxy S10 Plus.
