Samsung's Folding Galaxy X Will 'Launch' In November

Samsung Moves To Mid-Range Phones For Mobile Growth

Samsung Galaxy X foldable smartphone could launch sooner than expected.

Samsung Mobile CEO, DJ Koh, according to the report, has confirmed that Samsung's foldable device will be launching to market some time this year, though no specifics were discussed and Mr Koh very unkindly declined to elaborate on any hardware specifics the smartphone will include. If Samsung is indeed planning such a device, there are a few ways those four cameras could be arranged. Koh didn't share the technical details of how the device worked but shared how Samsung plans to differentiate the experience from a tablet once it is unfolded.

The exec added that the development process is "complicated", but that the company has "nearly concluded" it. Koh hinted at a November unveiling held at the Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco. This is in line with Samsung's newly-minted strategy to combat the smartphone market stagnation by introducing some high-end features to its cheaper midrange lines. For example, it has released the results of several consumer surveys that suggest that there is consumer appetite for one.

Samsung was rumored to launch its first-ever foldable for a couple of years, but Samsung kept delaying the phone's arrival. "So when the customers uses it, [they think] "Wow, this is the reason Samsung made it"," Koh said.

Samsung may be readying a device with four cameras on the back and it won't be a Galaxy Note nor a Galaxy S (nor the foldable Galaxy F) phone.

Unlike the traditional flip phones that require a hinge, Samsung is reportedly making a screen that bends.

He further revealed that users will be able to do most of the tasks when the tablet is in the folded state but they will have to unfold it for browsing or seeing something else.

It first released a prototype bendable OLED display in 2012 and then created an advertisement showing off a possible foldable phone design in 2014. The device allegedly has a 7.3-inch foldable display panel. "If the unfolded experience is the same as the tablet, why would they [consumers] buy it?"
