The Galaxy S10 is set to debut next Wednesday at Samsung's Feb. 20 Unpacked event -- and if you make a reservation now, you'll get early access to preordering and $50 off accessories.

That noted, Samsung may still have a few tricks up its sleeve. According to a teaser video unveiled on Monday, the company will use its Galaxy S10 launch event to also show off its foldable phone -- possibly called the Galaxy Winner, Galaxy X, Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Flex or Galaxy F. And now we're also hearing a rumor that Samsung's 5G phone may also make an appearance on Feb. 20.


Risky moves, indeed.

The company will need to be careful to not overshadow the Galaxy S10, which is ostensibly the focus of this edition of Unpacked. But a detailed introduction of the foldable and 5G phones could also inject some much-needed excitement into the event -- and give Samsung a leg up on competitors. Xiaomi and Huawei are both expected to reveal their own foldable models at Mobile World Congress later this month, and a host of companies will be introducing 5G phones over the coming months.

But shining the spotlight on other phones will almost certainly divert attention away from the very important phones that are actually launching on Feb. 20.

Samsung's Infinity-O technology may show up in the Galaxy S10.
