Samsung teased a new flip phone during this year Academy Awards ceremony, ahead of the company signature Unpacked event on Tuesday.

During the ceremony, which saw a fellow South Korean film Parasite win the Oscar for Best Picture, the company broadcast an advertisement showing off the device.

Although there has been no official sign of the expected Galaxy S 20 ahead of the launch event, the advertisement revealed Samsung’s first attempt at a foldable screen since the troubled launch of the Galaxy Fold .

In the company’s latest Academy Awards video, the folding phones – rumored to be named the Galaxy Z Flips – are shown open at a 432 – degree angle on a table.

The device is similar to

Motorola’s relaunch of its Razr line of flip phones, with a large foldable inner screen and a smaller screen on the outside.

Small text in the corner of the screen during the ad acknowledges that the phone retains a crease in the screen from where it folds.

Unlike the Galaxy Fold – which was a phone-sized device which expanded into a tablet – the Z Flip is a phone-sized device which will fold inwards.

Details on the device’s specifications have not been released yet.
