SAMSUNG IS ABOUT TO LAUNCH FOLDABLE TABLET THAT COULD FIT INTO POCKET
Samsung’s foldable phone is not far from reality!
FINALLY COMING TO REALITY?
It’s been long since we are hearing about the rumors about Samsung’s foldable phone, but nothing came out. The rumors were about to diminish but D.J. Koh, CEO of Samsung’s mobile business released a statement confirming it is not a gimmick. He said you will be capable to use the device as a tablet along with multitasking ability before folding it up into a portable phone and keeping it in your pocket.
“When we deliver a foldable phone, it has to be really meaningful to our customer. If the user experience is not up to my standard, I don’t want to deliver those kinds of products”. Koh said in an interview at the avocations of the Samsung Galaxy A9 launch.
He emphasized that foldable phone wouldn’t be a “gimmick product” that will “disappear after six to nine months after it’s delivered.” The product will be available across the world.
WHEN IS IT COMING?
Samsung has been working on bringing the phone for quite some time now. We got to see a teaser at CES 2013 with a flexible OLED display. Koh affirmed last month that the device will get released this year. The sources say it could get launch even in Samsung’s Developer Conference. The foldable phone will be a new revelation and prompt new advances in smartphones.
Samsung is not the only company which is burning the candle at both ends and experimenting on the foldable phone. Huawei is also rumored to be working on launch such device this November. With this launch, Huawei is gunning for top spot in the smartphone manufacturers world. Launching first foldable phone will be a mile marker and company would become a trendsetter as well. As per Koh, a larger screen is important.
Earlier Samsung launched Galaxy Note and showed that customers need phones with bigger screen and years later, Apple, Google and other smartphone manufacturers admit it and now have come with devices like Pixel 3 XL or iPhone XS Max. A foldable phone will increase the horizon and extend the limit past 6.5 inches.
“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.”
