Samsung’s next big keynote is just over a week away but the biggest surprise has already been spoiled.

Notorious smartphone leaker Ben Geskin says the video came from a company worker that had access to the phone. The worker posted the video on Instagram and then deleted but not before Geskin got a hold of it.

Galaxy Z Flip

Unlike the disaster our Galaxy Fold, the Z Flip will supposedly use Ultra Thin Glass for its folding display. The Galaxy Fold has a plastic display that’s prone to getting bumps and other issues.

The display features a 2636 x 1080 resolution measuring 6.7 inches on the diagonal making for a 22:9 aspect ratio. Other specs will likely include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chip, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.

Samsung’s big Unpacked event is slated to go down in Apple’s backyard of San Francisco on Tuesday, February 11 at 11AM PT. The company’s flagship Galaxy S20 phone will also be unveiled at the event.
