Samsung Slated To Launch World’s First Foldable Phone Next Year
Samsung just launched its flagship device last March 2018 and it seems that the South Korean tech giant already has plans for the following year. It appears that the company has plans of releasing the world’s first foldable phone (Galaxy F) next year.
According to Metro, DJ Koh, Samsung Electronics’ CEO stated that when it comes to creating the foldable phone, the South Korean tech company didn’t want to lose the ‘world’s-first title.’ He also added that the firm is concentrating on developing modernizations that will be sincerely recognized and enjoyed by the firm’s customers.
It can be recalled that the idea of manufacturing a foldable phone was first impelled way back in 2016. Samsung has been working on it since that moment. This isn’t similar to Motorola flip phones with a keypad that was made available in the 90s. The said foldable phone rumored to be known as Galaxy F will be utilizing cutting-edge foldable screen technology that has been studied at the R&D labs for years. With the central display that can be folded along a spine, the futuristic and innovative device could possibly feature a screen on the outside.
Even though Samsung’s CEO stated that the project isn’t too distant from seeing the light, unverified rumors and speculations have suggested that the much-awaited foldable smartphone will make its first appearance un in 2019. With that, Samsung will have to move as fast as other smartphone makers are also working on their own foldable phones. As a matter of fact, Huawei is also rumored aiming the world’s first foldable smartphone title as well.
In the South Korean tech giant’s case, this new design set-up could be the beginning of a new series of smartphones that would sit alongside the S and Note series.
