Samsung will launch a long-awaited foldable phone, Galaxy X early next year.
Samsung is supposedly still deciding whether the device will fold out vertically or horizontally, which seems very strange considering the company recently suggested the device will already be ready to be displayed at Samsung’s developer conference next month. In that case, perhaps Samsung may instead present conceptual details of the design and user.
The folding phone apparently won’t include an in-display fingerprint sensor because of technical difficulties with the screen technology. It’s said to include a four-inch display that can be used when the phone is closed, with a much larger screen on the inside that unfolds like a wallet — similar to a concept shown off in 2014 (above). The WSJ’s earlier report said the inner screen would be about seven inches diagonal when unfolded, though it’s hard to know quite what that’d look like without knowing the aspect ratio.
“Possibly when we start selling the foldable phone, it may be a niche market, but definitely, it will expand,” Koh said. “I’m positive that we do need a foldable phone.”
Anyone patiently waiting for the first folding smartphone to launch worldwide will need to have some spare cash lying around, with analysts suggesting the price of the Samsung Galaxy X could reach ₩2,000,000 (roughly £1,375 or $1,800).
