Samsung might launch its first foldable phone ‘Galaxy F’ on November 7

This Company Just Beat Samsung with The World’s 1st Foldable Smartphone Karlie Powell

A start-up from China, called Royole, has become the first company to bring a commercial foldable smartphone to market.

Although Samsung has been suggesting this kind of a device was coming since 2014, this is the closest we've got to seeing it for real.

The Samsung Foldable Smartphone is expected to be made official at the Samsung Developer Conference this week, although the handset is not expected to go on sale until next year. Ahead of its annual developer conference Samsung Developer Conference (SDC), the company has updated its profile image on Facebook and Twitter with a teaser of what's believed to be its new foldable phone, dubbed as Galaxy F aka Galaxy X.

Samsung is said to be contemplating two design choices: one that is longer horizontally and the other vertical when unfolded.

The last rumor from the Wall Street Journal claimed Samsung's foldable display phone would be out early next year, but remember the rumor mill has been saying that for years. The phone has been codenamed as Valley and victor also. But that won't make Huawei the first company to launch a foldable phone.

The developer model of the FlexPai is available now for €1,388.00 on the Royole site. The Korean giant is eager to know about the initial comments about the newly designed flexible device. Which could prefigure how the foldable phones might actually fold, that is, not completely flat and leaving a small gap in between. Royole says the display can withstand 200,000 folds before it starts to degrade, which should more than cover the lifespan of the phone. It is also not clear at the moment that on which Android version will the smartphone run on and how much battery will it pack. The company is launching a developer program to incentivize third-party app makers, but I'm extremely skeptical that they'll get many to buy in. First of all, Samsung phones are never secret. But until that happens, it's very hard to get excited about a foldable phone that costs more than $1300 and won't have reliable software.
