They have been saying that for years. Marketing gimmicks, I don't think they know when it will be available. I heard the hype also, and it would definitely give imessage a coronary. However, I listened Samsung and Google talk about this year's and it would be here soon. Depends on their definition of soon, is a relative term. I told my girlfriend that we would be married soon and that was 8 years ago. Hopefully, soon is quicker then my definition was to her, but then some times we get told soon to stop the nagging lol. If it was that close I think they would of confirmed it with a date or firmware release. Androids and Sammy's updates that can take up to a year to get, two, or even some cases not at all. It's crazy that we are now paying over a thousand dollars for a device and in two years at best, and it's obsolete. Sorry for the rant. If I really had to guess, I would believe they would reveal it Febuary 2021 at Samsung's Unpacked Event.
