Samsung has a new Galaxy device to show off.
The South Korean tech giant on Friday announced it will hold a Galaxy event on Thursday, Oct. 11.
“4X fun,” the mysterious invite reads. Samsung will live stream all the action at news.samsung.com/global, samsungmobilepress.com, and samsung.com/galaxy. Samsung did not specify a time or location for the launch, but a source tells PCMag the event will be held at the W Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia.
“Samsung’s newest Galaxy device is bringing more ways to express yourself than ever before,” the company teased. “Capture the fun with Samsung as the company celebrates the launch of the new device.”
What, exactly, Samsung has up its sleeve is a mystery.
CNET and others are speculating that Samsung may reveal a rumored midrange handset featuring four cameras, which might be a good guess given the invitation’s “4X fun” hint. Meanwhile, Samsung has promised to unveil its long-awaited foldable smartphone this year, so perhaps it could be that.
Keep in mind that Samsung has already released its 2018 flagship smartphones, the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, and S9 Plus. The company doesn’t normally hold big launch events for midrange handsets, so if this is indeed a smartphone, it will likely have some unique aspect.
It may not even be a smartphone, though. Sit tight as all will be revealed soon.
Meanwhile, the rumor mill is already churning about Samsung’s 2019 smartphone lineup. Word has it that Samsung is readying three different Galaxy S10 models, including one aimed at budget consumers and another that features a three-camera setup.
