Last month, Samsung has launched their new flagship, Galaxy Note 8. On Tuesday, the company said its goal is to launch a foldable Galaxy Note smartphone next year.
A few weeks ago, Samsung has introduced their brand new device, Galaxy Note 8. And now, the company shares their goals for the future. What’s next? Yesterday, Samsung said it is aiming to launch a foldable Galaxy Note next year, the Associated Press reports.
President of mobile business at Samsung Electronics Dongjin Koh said at the news conference in South Korea there are some hurdles the company needs to overcome. If the issues are not resolved, they will have to push back the release of the phone.
“As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year,” Dongjin Koh said. “When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product.”
“We are digging thoroughly into several issues we must overcome, as we don’t want to just make a few, sell a few and be done. We want to hear that Samsung made a very good product,” Koh told the reporters.
However, he did not share what are the issues company needs to overcome. Back in 2013, Samsung has shown off Youm, a flexible display prototype.
There have been many rumors in the past that said it is a matter of time when Samsung will launch a bendable phone.
The president of Samsung’s mobile business said the response to their latest flagship, Note 8, exceeded the company’s expectations. The phone has set pre-sale records.
More people in the States have bought Note 8 than any of the previous Notes in the same period in the past. It shows that Note fans don’t want to give up on the series, even after the Note 7 fiasco.
The latest flagship is the most expensive Samsung’s phone. Note 8 average price is $950.
