But now, all of that changes as the company has dropped a major hint suggesting the actual launch date of its foldable 'Galaxy F' smartphone.

Here's more.

Just a few days back, Samsung started sending out invites for its February 20 'Unpacked' event in San Francisco.

The company is expected to unveil an upgraded Galaxy S10 lineup there, celebrating 10 years of its S-series phones.

But, along with S10, we may also see the revolutionary foldable phone taking up the stage, Samsung has hinted in a cryptic-not-so-cryptic way.

Hint details

Hint: Samsung's mysterious billboards in Paris

Samsung has hinted foldable phone's launch by putting up a couple of Korean-language billboards at Paris's famous Place de la Concorde.

The message on the banners is unreadable (unless you know Korean), but the company has issued a press release offering the translation.

Interestingly, the first banner reads, "The future unfolds", while the second says "February 20".
