Samsung has been promoting its foldable smartphone since 2013. The buzz for the phone began when the first concept video was posted online. But even eight years after its manufacture, there was no official announcement. Recently, Samsung started teasing a foldable phone from the company at SDC18. The folding phone has been continuously dropped for weeks and finally disguised with a keyword. Justin Denison, senior vice president of product marketing, demonstrated a prototype of the phone during the Samsung developer conference, but the elements of the flexible phone were protected by dimming the light.
Denison claims that there is a cool device hidden behind the case. Samsung will reveal the phone in 2019. However, the fact that it has not been shown publicly means that the company is not proud of the final product. Otherwise, they would have proven it, right?
On stage, the only visible part was the screen. It is a phone when folded and turns into a tablet when opened. Samsung calls it “Infinity Flex Display”. Eight years of work on the rumored smartphone and it will be released next year, that’s a disappointment. The Samsung phone is rumored to be called the Galaxy X, but it is not an official company name.
The foldable phone that turns into a tablet when opened comes with a 7.3-inch screen. The main screen has a resolution of 1536 x 2152 with a screen density of 420 dpi. When folded, it becomes a phone. The phone has a screen resolution of 840 x 1960 with a screen density of 420 pixels.
Samsung is not the only manufacturer in the industry working on folding phones. Recently, the Chinese company Royale launched its “FlexPai” folding phone, the world’s first folding phone. Unlike Samsung, LG, Huawei and Xiaomi are also working on folding screens. Huawei is reportedly working on a foldable phone for launch next year. LG has been showing off its foldable displays for a long time and plans to launch its phones next year.
Meanwhile, Google announced its original foldable smartphone support at the Android Development Summit. An Android Dev Summit tweet on Twitter confirms that Android now officially supports foldable screen phones. Samsung is working closely with Google to bring foldable phones to the mass market until next year. With this, companies will be able to manufacture new phones in different ways. The Android developer’s Twitter GIF file shows a foldable adaptation to change as the device changes its appearance.
With all these OEMs on board and Google rolling up its sleeves to make these companies work easier, we expect to see a tsunami of foldable phones from various manufacturers next year. Like the class, companies will adapt to this change in the new wave of Android smartphones.
Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy F folding phone costs a bit more than the more expensive iPhone XS Max. We are not surprised by the suggested price. The Korean tech giant will do its best to make this mega launch for the company. However, this could change things when it comes to sales. Selling the device at this high price could reduce your sales.
The expected release of this masterpiece in March. However, some industry watchers say this masterpiece will arrive at Mobile World Congress in February. The launch of the Galaxy F will be followed by the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10.
Other than that, the report notes that the Galaxy F has a 4.6-inch screen when folded and a 7.4-inch screen when open. However, the phone does not support the 5G network. While Samsung’s other most anticipated phone, the Galaxy S10 will be a 5G mobile phone, it is expected to launch in February 2019.
With the launch of the Royale folding phone, FlexPai, and the upcoming Samsung device in March, Huawei is also planning to launch the folding phone in 2019. We can see that a whole new trend is being followed. However, the Royale machine did not please many. Let’s see if Samsung can justify the price of the Samsung Galaxy F.
