What you should expect from this innovative device
DJ Koh, one of the most important figures of Samsung, did not reveal certain information about the specs of this device. However, he mentioned that the screen of the foldable phone would be quite large. Besides that, he also added that Samsung is what inspired other rivals such as Google and Apple to increase the sizes of their handsets. Moreover, he suggested that the foldable device will have a display measuring more than 6.5 inches.
The South Korean tech giant is expected to use the flexible OLED technology in their handset. When folded the device will measure 4.5 inches while unfolded it will have an OLED screen measuring 7.3 inches. It will be the first 5G foldable smartphone on the market, and it might be called the Galaxy X. From what we know so far it looks like its price will exceed $1,000 and be the most expensive phone Samsung has ever produced.
Even though the developer conference of Samsung might not be the most suitable place for the announcement of the first foldable phone, it might be. Developers will be needed to release apps that suit the new format of the phone. Even though the phone might be announced next month, do not expect to purchase it earlier than in 2019.
The next big thing on the phone market – the foldable phones
Samsung will not be the only phone manufacturer that will create a foldable phone. As more and more people are interested in the concept, other firms are not missing the change to increase their revenue by releasing foldable phones. Huawei might do that in 2019, but only a limited quantity of the specifies device will be available. Xiaomi and Lenovo are also considering working on their own foldable smartphones.
