Samsung's foldable phone might actually, finally launch this year

Samsung Said to Launch Smartphone With 4 Rear Cameras in 2018

DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung mobile communications, revealed the change in strategy whilst speaking to CNBC.

Samsung mobile division CEO DJ Koh confirmed the company will be launching the phone before the end of the year, but there's no guarantee you'll be able to buy it before 2019. Koh hinted at a November unveiling held at the Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco.

Apparently, Samsung conducted a series of consumer surveys and is confident now that there is sufficient demand for such a foldable devices.

SAMSUNG HAS teased its first foldable smartphone, pushing the start button on the next big race in tech. However, it will still come down to whether consumers can afford it and if they think it's worth the price.

Koh explained that the development process has been "complicated" but that it's "nearly concluded" it, CNBC said.

Two of these screens combine seamlessly into a single seven-inch display when unfolded.

Wait for Samsung's foldable smartphone, a much-hyped gadget, is finally over if the latest reports are believed to be true.

Samsung's history with foldable phones has been well documented. It's safe to assume that Samsung will be charging a hefty premium for the Galaxy X, especially if it's the first folding phone to hit the market. "So when the customers uses it, [they think] "Wow, this is the reason Samsung made it"," Koh said. The firm is expected to launch three new iPhones, but they are likely to be iterative designs rather than major innovations like 2017's iPhone X. All three phones are expected to sport the iPhone X's "notch" design, and its edge-to-edge screen. There have been phones that can fold, like the ZTE Axon M, but they typically utilize multiple displays.
