It was South Korea’s — rather than Netflix’s — night during a Oscars, interjection to Bong Joon-ho’s satirical category joke Parasite, which won a well-deserved best picture

But tech hulk Samsung appears to have been anticipating to take a small of a inhabitant limelight. The Korean phone builder chose a primary Oscars ad container to uncover off a 360-degree perspective of a subsequent foldable, using it as a teaser for a Unpacked 2020 unboxing event, that takes place in San Francisco tomorrow.

The ad shows a flip phones from all angles, opening and shutting while a Comic Strip sounds of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot cocktail and burst in a background.

Notably we see a foldable propping itself up, with a shade half or three-quarters open, for a hands-free face-time character chat. (In box we were wondering what a indicate of a flip phone competence be in 2020.)

There’s also an eye-popping shimmering purple color-way on uncover that seems dictated to make a many of a screen-concealing clamshell design. A black chronicle does a most improved pursuit of consistent into a background, and a brief side perspective of a phone shows what looks like a side-mounted fingerprint scanner as shown in progressing leaks.

And if you’re wondering how you’ll shade incoming calls when a clam is closed, a ad shows a micro arrangement that tells we a name of a chairman calling. TL;DR: You can still spook your frenemies while make-up a flip.

We’ve seen renders of a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip trickle online before though this is an central full perspective of a foldable Samsung hopes will hint a retro conform disturb for clamshell flip phones. (See also a rebooted Motorola Razr.)

Samsung will also, of course, be anticipating this foldable can hook but immediately breaking.

My Galaxy Fold arrangement is shop-worn after a day

TechCrunch’s courageous hardware editor, Brian Heater, will be on a belligerent in San Francisco tomorrow to get hands on with all a new pack so we don’t have to.
