Samsung CEO DJ Koh has dropped a hint about the plan to introduce a flexible and foldable phone at Samsung’s developer conference in November, this year. This is not the first time Samsung has come out with this idea. In fact, it was back in 2012 when the Chaebol first unveiled a prototype showcasing the bendable smartphone. Samsung has been testing the possibility since then. The 2012 prototype picture was followed by a concept video showing the potential foldable smartphone in 2013.

Samsung has been in the news for working on a foldable smartphone for a long time now. The alleged Samsung Galaxy X is expected to have a bendable display which means a user has a smartphone and a tablet at the same time. However, as is with every device, the final Galaxy X that will launch to the public will be different from the numerous prototypes that Samsung built on the way to its final product. One such prototype has made its way to the realm of the internet and gives us an insight into Samsung’s process.
A Chinese Twitter user claims that this Samsung device was known by the name of Project V or Project Valley. The rumours of Project Valley came about in [...]
Samsung’s highly-anticipated foldable smartphone has been in the works for quite a while now. The company was first expected to unveil the Galaxy X at CES 2018, however, that seems highly unlikely. There were reports that Samsung showcased a working prototype of the Galaxy X behind closed doors at Mobile World Congress. After spending so much of time and money in the new smartphone, Samsung is hoping to unveil the device in early-2019.
We have known about the Samsung Galaxy X for a while now. A few years ago, Samsung showcased foldable displays at tech conventions. However, only last year did the company start dropping hints at a possible consumer-ready foldable [...]
Companies like Samsung and Apple have started working a smartphone with a foldable display. In fact, the Samsung Galaxy X could be the first smartphone to feature this technology. And now, Huawei filed a new patent on a smartphone with a foldable display technology. Having a foldable display on a smartphone will offer a compact form factor with a large screen real estate.Foldable Smartphone Technology
This new patent from Huawei has a similar mechanism, that is found on the Microsoft Surface Book. The smartphone is will have similar dimensions as of a standard smartphone. Unfolding the device will offer a bigger tablet-like screen. This also means that the fingerprint [...]
It looks like we will have to wait for over a year until we can see a Samsung foldable smartphone in all its glory. Samsung Mobile’s President, DJ Koh has conceded that the company won’t be able to launch its first-ever foldable Android phone until 2019.
He revealed that the UX is the biggest obstacle Samsung is facing in commercialisation but assured that Samsung is working aggressively to overcome the problem.
This revelation from the Samsung Mobile boss falls in-line with a previous report that claimed that the Galaxy X (tentatively named) will launch in December of [...]
For months now, there have been rumours that Samsung will be launching a foldable smartphone in 2018. Till now, a lot of the information was gathered through Samsung patents but, a new report has claimed that Samsung will launch a 7.3-inch foldable smartphone in December of 2018.
The report was published earlier today, which provided a few interesting details about the upcoming foldable smartphone. According to the report, the phone would feature a 7.3-inch, flexible OLED display (built by Samsung Display) which would fold open like a book. The report further speculates that Samsung may even be showing off display prototypes for industry partners behind closed doors at CES in [...]
AI and foldable phones are touted to be the new rage in the smartphone industry. The Samsung Galaxy X has long been rumoured to be the first consumer-friendly foldable smartphone. But, if a new report is to be believed, the Galaxy X might have some competition from an unlikely source. Microsoft might be working on a foldable Surface phone that will compete directly against the iPhone, the Pixel, and the Galaxy S series.
This news is surprising since Microsoft recently shut its mobile business. However, a blog has kept a track of Microsoft’s activity and recently came across a few patents which might suggest that [...]
Apple might be working on a foldable device similar to what the Samsung Galaxy X would be. After a report claimed that Apple has been working on this new foldable iPhone, a patent application has revealed what Apple might have in store for its foldable iPhone.
Apple has been known to perfect a technology and implement it in their iPhones rather than being the first to implement and under tested technology. Screen embedded fingerprint sensor, which was expected to feature in the iPhone X now seems like a 2018 iPhone feature as Apple will have ample time to test it out first.
The iPhone X has a foldable display as well, which folds at the bottom and can’t be seen while [...]
The smartphone industry has seen a gradual slump in innovation over the past few years. Bezel-less display has been the rage of 2017 but, other than that you barely see anything new nowadays. Samsung stirred things up a little with the news of it launching a foldable Android phone in early 2018. Now, there is news that Apple might be teaming up with LG to work on a foldable smartphone.
Samsung has been at the top of its game in the OLED market but, it hasn’t yet commercialised the flexible OLED displays. LG had also revealed a foldable display at CES and has the opportunity to take over that segment of the market and that might be the reason why Apple would choose to [...]
Imagine a phone with a display that can fold in and out without cracking a single piece. Like a sandwich. If news sources are to be believed this may soon be a reality. Samsung and LG are slated to launch phones with foldable displays later this year. Samsung reportedly began working on a phone that folds out and turns into a 7-inch tablet, and it’s expected to roll out over 100,000 units in the third quarter.
If you remember, we had first covered this news in 2015 when Samsung had launched a competition to get entrepreneurs excited about creating startups around flexible display technologies. It is believed that since then the company has secured fold-in phone [...]
It is no secret that Samsung is working on a smartphone with a foldable display which it will launch in 2017. The Galaxy X is the name chosen for this phone, which will juggle between a large and a small display unit without any major damage to the smartphone mechanism.
Manufacturing as a whole tends to stay away from moving parts in mobile handsets and portable devices. The more you knock these around the more prone to damage they become. Even most modern laptop hinges succumb to the weight of opening and closing several times a day. Samsung, however, claims that their new technology will not only revolutionize the smartphone segment but all segments on the way up to [...]
