Samsung Foldable Phone: Release date, specs, price, rumors and news

Did you just think that Samsung Edge Display was far too impressive and cool? You are far off as a cooler device from the same company is expected to hit the market.

You have heard about the foldable phones for years now, and the company has finally given an indication about this new technology and the appearance of the device during the annual Samsung Developer Conference.

With countless specifications whether the device will fold or not and whether the size will resemble a smartphone or tablet, and how far it will grab the attention of the audience etc. are still to be seen. However, it seems that people may not have to wait longer for this smartphone to arrive. As far as rumours go, the phone may be called Galaxy F or X as one has been hearing coming for the last couple of years. For now, it is good to refer to it as the foldable phone from Samsung to make it simple, until the device is unveiled officially.

The naming of the device

There are dozens of names coming out for the foldable phone of Samsung and Galaxy F or X are the names used for referring to this device. However, with the date of its release coming closer, there are a lot of other things you may know about the name of the foldable device.

With rumours going on for some time, it appears this device is finally going to get its name. While unearthing a trademark application filed recently with the name Samsung Galaxy and the status that it is still due for release indicates that this might be the new foldable phone from Samsung. However, we cannot be sure whether this is the same foldable device that is due for release.

You have to watch out until the final day of unveiling the device to know the exact name.

The company launched the Infinity Flex display during the annual developer conference in the month of November, and you may be lucky to get a hint about the release date and the price of the device. With its plans to begin mass production of Infinity Flex display in the coming months, the audience can expect a release date in the first half of 2019.

It seems that all the rumours that you have been getting about the release of this device until now are true. However, it is yet to be seen whether the phone is going to arrive within a few months of the company’s announcement of the mass production of the foldable displays or whether the release of the device can be pushed back further.

As far as the release date of the device is concerned, you might get a glimpse of it at CES January or the company may prefer to wait until the Mobile World Congress which is due in the month of February. According to the latest rumors coming from a South Korean news agency, Samsung is going to announce the launch of this phone in the Mobile World Congress to be held in February 2019 and the release of the device can be expected in the month that follows.

When it comes to the price of the foldable device, the scenario is still nebulous. The prices of different foldable models are likely to stay between $1900 and $2550. Regardless of the speculations, the foldable device of this company is going to be the most expensive handset the company has released. Even if the company decides to adjust the prices of the foldable devices, you can expect to pay a lot for them.

Design of the device

You may not know how exactly the phone is going to look due to conflicting reports pouring in from different sources. With the launch of the foldable displays recently, you may get a few details about the design. Sources predict that the foldable device of Galaxy is going to appear same as it looked during the launch when the company appeared to have put the device somewhere else to hide the major aspects of the design.

What we can see right now is that when the device is folded, the outer part of the display only consumes a smaller part of the backside, which appears consistent with what the people could view when the Samsung announced the launch of the foldable device on the stage.

According to some other sources, the phone that appears to be a tablet when fully folded is just ideal for all those functions that are to be carried out on a big screen. To make it pocket-friendly, you can unfold the device and keep it inside the pocket easily. The malleability of the display is the core of the design and the coincidental revelation of the flexible OLED panel during the summer reveals that the foldable device might have a similar display.

However, no one is quite sure whether the company is going to use the same technology or not. Until the final release, the audiences have to stay satisfied with the speculation that the durability of the OLED panel might be the most suitable thing the device needs. More
