In an effort beat growing smartphone company Huawei, Samsung will soon be showcasing the world’s first foldable smartphone, made of flexible OLED panels. The South Korean company has now hinted its next big project as it updated its official profile picture with an apt logo as a teaser.
Samsung will be hosting its annual developer conference on Wednesday and with the latest development, it’s highly likely that it might announce one thing or a few about its foldable smartphone. The device is currently being called the Galaxy F with two screens – a 7.3-inch internal display and a 4.6-inch external screen.
With the two screens, the smartphone would look a lot like a flip phone with the smaller display protecting the inner display which is larger. While Samsung hinted a change in UI to be demonstrated at its Developer Conference, we can now expect something about the first folding smartphone or its mechanism.
The Galaxy F is however still months away from production and could likely see the day of light sometime during CES 2019, maybe followed up with a shipping date set during MWC. The latest set of information suggests that the dual-screen smartphone will come with a phone specific UI which Samsung will develop alongside Google.
Until we know any further, we’ll have to wait and see for ourselves what Samsung’s ethical device will pack in terms of features but till then, I guess it’s finally the time we see a foldable smartphone.
