We have got used to massive screens, FaceID or fingerprint scanners but if you have ever thought that the technology of the phone can no longer improve, you fooled yourself. Samsung is getting ready to unveil a phone that folds entirely in half.
However, we have got no confirmation of any features of the device, but a news report about it says:
- The new device will be called Winner
- It is supposed to be a massive 7-inch phone
- Its reveal date might be in 2019
Samsung also has another two launches planned such as the Galaxy Note 9 on 9th of August at the Unlocked event from Brooklyn, New York City and Galaxy S10 set to be launched by Samsung over the coming 12 months.
Some of The Wall Street Journal’s sources which provide them with information suggests that the foldable phone will have a large screen that folds in half similar to a wallet with an additional smaller screen on the exterior once it is folded.
It is generally thought that the foldable version of 2019’s phone might only be limited edition with a see a broader launch in 2020 if it ends up victorious.
Samsung Foldable Device
Samsung has a lot of sources which provide it with motivation, one of the main one being too fresh up a stale smartphone industry with an innovative reveal because it experienced stagnating sales for the first time this year.
IDC, a market researcher, released some figures which show how the smartphone sales slipped by 0.3 percent in 2017. This was especially marked for the first time since the launch of the iPhone in 2017 that sales have declined.
Samsung’s first alike design was teased in a video released in 2014 which was showing a phone-tablet concept.
The years went by and the South Korean electronics giant has been filling numerous patents since then which describe various ways in which an organic light emitting diode (OLED) screen could be created to bend.
Apple known as Samsung’s biggest rival when it comes to high-end smartphones is also gossiped to be working on a foldable phone. United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) showed several patents for bendy iPhones published over the years.
In 2015 Apple patented for a ‘Flexible Electronic Device’ said that in order to make a flexible device it must include a flexible printed circuit, a flexible battery, and flexible display.
