“The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience,” added DJ Koh.
Before the Samsung Developers Conference on Wednesday, the folded logo came to indicate the foldable phone that was recently reported.
Unconfirmed leaks say the new phone, expected to be named the Galaxy F, will have two screens, one internal 7.3-inch and a 4.6-inch external.
The phone is likely to be unveiled to the public early next year.
Recent information suggests that the dual screen will be coupled with a unique user interface developed by Samsung and Google.
Samsung will not be the first company to produce a foldable phone, which was preceded by the American company Royole launched a phone called “FlexPai” last week in China.
The current rumoured cost is a cool £1,365 or $1,775 – that’s the current exchange rate for 2 million won, which is the mooted Korean price. Given the maxed-out Galaxy Note 9 already costs £1,099 ($1,249.99) – and that only has one screen – the upcoming folding smartphone will likely carry a hefty price tag.
Californian technology firm Royole recently launched a folding phone, which has a single OLED screen – not the two coming to the Galaxy X, and that still topped £999 ($1,300).
So if you want the coolest smartphone of 2019, you’d better start saving for it.
