The organization just introduced its latest and greatest smartphone , and mobile CEO DJ Koh was currently speaking concerning the foldable phone that has been dubbed the Samsung Galaxy X. There has been speak that the phone would go into mass manufacturing this November with a 2019 release on tap. Last month, at CES, an nearly finished version of the Galaxy X was proven to certain crucial industry players.
Samsung will most likely offer very first a version that folds inwards. A model with a screen that folds outwards will be offered in the future. The latter will require a screen with more flexibility than needed for an inward folding unit. The Samsung Galaxy X unit that created the trip to Vegas carried a 7.3-inch display.
According to a report printed this afternoon, Mr. Koh is concerned that the public will consider the foldable phone to be a gimmick. The executive stated
“I need complete confidence that we’re delivering the best user experience when we’re launching a new category.”
While Koh wouldn’t offer any other information concerning the long-awaited phone right now, he promised that when the time comes to introduce the Galaxy X (or what ever it will be called), he will not hold back again anything.
Samsung is not the only major tech firm working on a folding device. Through a series of patents, it seems apparent that Microsoft is prepping a folding tablet/smartphone that has been given the code title of Andromeda. With radio silence coming from Redmond, it is unknown how far along Microsoft is in creating this model.
