Samsung Galaxy Even Invitation

What does Samsung have in store? We'll find out next month.


Samsung will unveil a new Galaxy device next month that offers "4x the fun."

On Friday, Samsung sent out invitations for the launch of a new device at "A Galaxy Event" on Oct. 11. The invite doesn't include a time or location, but says the event will be livestreamed on Samsung's site.

"Samsung's newest Galaxy device is bringing more ways to express yourself than ever before," reads the invite.  

The invite doesn't offer many hints to what we might see at the event, just an image that says "4x the fun." 

It's possible we could see the mystery Chromebook that appeared recently in the Wi-Fi Alliance's database, or an update to the Galaxy Book detachable, which is over a year old now. It could even be the foldable phone that Samsung has been talking about for a long time, or even a possible new phone with four cameras that has been floating around the rumor mill since July, which most closely lines up with the "4x the fun" tag. But we won't know for sure until the event.

The event falls one month after Apple's splashy unveiling of its latest iPhones, the XS, XS Max and XR, along with the Apple Watch Series 4 .

Samsung has already shipped its flagship phones for 2018. In August it unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 , several months after the rollout of the Galaxy S9  and S9 Plus.

Samsung didn't immediately respond to a request for more information.
