Samsung Teases The Launch Of Its Foldable Phone
Samsung will launch a plethora of devices at the Unpacked event on February 20 in San Fransisco. There were many leaks and rumors that the foldable Galaxy device might make an appearance at the event but we now finally have official confirmation. Samsung Mobile’s official twitter handle has shared a video confirming that the Galaxy F, as it’s rumored to be called, will be announced alongside the Galaxy S10 series.
The Foldable Galaxy smartphone has been long rumored to have the name Galaxy F. The F might stand for ‘Fold’ here. The device was last shown off at the Samsung Developer Conference in November last year. And while Samsung didn’t show how the device looks, we saw that it bent inwards. This is unlike the Royole FlexPai, which has an outward bend.
The video shows Korean text on the screen and then the words “The Future Unfolds” appear, followed by the date. This doesn’t need much explanation that the choice of words and the animations used, prove that it is indeed about a foldable smartphone. We got a glimpse of how the device is going to look like in a teaser video shared by Samsung a few days ago.
Samsung Galaxy F Specifications
The Galaxy F, as it’s rumored to be called, will be an alternate flagship device for Samsung. It will reportedly feature two displays. One will be a 7.3 inches Super AMOLED one with a 2152 x 1536 px resolution. The second display may be a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED one. The device will run on the Snapdragon 855 combined with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. It may have dual cameras on the front and the back, details of which are unknown.
Due to its thin profile and foldable nature, the device will reporedly be powered by two 3100mAh batteries. The device will run on a version of Android Pie optimized for foldable devices. The device will also be the most expensive Samsung has ever made, expected to be available the $1700 price tag. Samsung is expected to make this device available for sale later this year.
