Samsung Gives Tips on what Foldable Galaxy F Smartphone will be shown in November
Samsung has been working on foldable and bendable display technology for years
It’s been a while since you’ve been reading that several technology companies are in the race against time so they can be the first to launch a foldable smartphone. Now, who seems to be at the forefront of this race is Samsung. At least that is what the South Korean manufacturer itself has given us to understand this week.
According to CNBC, the CEO of the company DJ Koh gave hints that this will be officially shown in November. The publication says the executive confirmed that “it is complicated to produce” the design of this device.
“You can use most of the uses … on foldable status. But when you need to browse or see something, then you may need to unfold it. But even unfolded, what kind of benefit does that give compared to the tablet? If the unfolded experience is the same as the tablet, why would they (consumers) buy it?,” Koh said at the IFA electronics show in Berlin last week.
“So every device, every feature, every innovation should have a meaningful message to our end customer. So when the end customer uses it, (they think) ‘wow, this is the reason Samsung made it’.”
Because of that, it is not yet known if, in November, we will see the Galaxy F (or X?) already available for sale … Yeah, it may just be “revealed” as a promise.
Unfortunately, everything is still a big mystery. There is a chance that we will see the Galaxy F being released as a two-screen device and a central fold (as if it were a wallet), but this is still far from being confirmed.
It goes without saying that CBNC claims that Koh would have guaranteed that the foldable smartphone will have features that will make people say “WOW! So that’s why Samsung does it!”. Apparently, we will have to wait until November to know exactly what this is all about. Would you make a bet?
