Foldable Samsung Phone Will Launch In First Half of 2019
Lately, Samsung has been in the news because of their smartphone with a foldable display. The company gave a glimpse of the foldable phone recently at their Developer Conference held in San Francisco. The president of Samsung Mobile division, DJ Koh in a press briefing said that the foldable phone will be available within the first half of the next year. Additionally, he also claimed that Samsung plans to sell at least 1 million foldable phones in 2019.
Yonhapnews, a South Korean news agency suggests that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S10 flagship smartphone in February next year. This will be followed by the foldable phone. The foldable phone, allegedly called the Galaxy F will launch in March along with a 5G variant of the Galaxy S10. Presumably, the foldable Galaxy F will not support 5G connectivity.
Reports also profess that the company will showcase a working prototype of the Galaxy F smartphone at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2019. The South Korean news agency also claims that the smartphone will cost $ 1,770 (around Rs 1,29,024 ). The steep price of the smartphone indicates that it might not be a mass market handset.
Galaxy F Features
The biggest highlight of the Galaxy F will definitely be its foldable display. Samsung says that the new smartphone will have a 4.6-inch display in regular mode and a 7.4-inch screen when unfolded. The foldable smartphone will also support Android Q’s continuity feature. It means when a user is running an app on a foldable device, it will seamlessly transfer between the two screen layouts. Which are the smaller, smartphone-like folded screen, and the larger, tablet-style experience when it is unfolded.
Any more technical specifications about the smartphone are currently unavailable. But, Samsung will hopefully launch it in Q1 of 2019 and make all the specifications and features official.
