Samsung Foldable Smartphones (Galaxy X or Galaxy F?) – Everything We Know So Far

Finally, Samsung has given us an idea about Samsung Foldable Smartphone in Australia – offered the first look at Samsung Developer Conference. Most of the details are still hidden but we’re now able to see that there is a foldable part in action alongside the screen. The screen of a foldable smartphone is named “Infinity Flex Display” which is specially designed to be folded and unfolded over and over again with no degrading the screen’s quality. Samsung has claimed that users would be able to fold or unfold hundreds of thousands of times without any wear and tear.

Release Date, Price, and Name

When will we see Samsung’s folding masterpiece out in a wild? It’s yet to be announced, to be honest. However, rumors and suggestions have indicated that Samsung Foldable Smartphone release date in Australia will be somewhere in 2019.

That sounds true as Samsung itself said on “Samsung Developer Conference” that we’re ready to mass-produce foldable screens in “coming months”. What does it mean? It shows that the smartphone wouldn’t make an appearance until a few months after that.

How much does it cost? Most probably as much as your single kidney costs. Yes! You read that correctly. You should expect to pay a lot more price for Samsung foldable smartphone which will definitely make your wallet cry.

Kim Jang-Yeol (head of research at Golden Bridge Investment) said, it will set the user back as much as 2 million won at release – Korea Times reports. And after conversion, Samsung Foldable Smartphone Price in Australia comes to around AU$2572. Doesn’t it sound similar to Apple iPhone XS Max or Samsung Galaxy Note 9? Be mindful, it’s just an educated guess as Samsung so far didn’t reveal its official price.

As far as Samsung’s foldable smartphone name is concerned, there’s a confusion between “Galaxy F” and “Galaxy X”. We don’t have any idea what will it be called but as soon as we hear more we’ll let you know. For now, however, we’ll just call it “Samsung Galaxy X”.

Design and Specifications

Things are pretty blurred in terms of design but you’ll be able to use it when it’s folded up and it’ll act like a normal smartphone you’re already using. We also know that it’s coming with fairly big bezels around the outer screen and quite smaller bezels inner side, foldable, screen. That’s it.

In terms of other specifications, Samsung only revealed details about phone’s display and user interface. The Samsung Foldable Smartphone is expected to be loaded with 2 display – 4.5-inches screen with a maximum resolution of 840 x 1960 on the outside or front for the handset and a foldable 7.3-inches with a maximum resolution of 1536 x 2152 display on the inside. Furthermore, Samsung leaker “Ice Universe,” said that it’ll be backed by a 7-nanometer processor. Doesn’t it sound like a gaming smartphone?

Is there a Notch?

Well, notches have been spread like an infection from one smartphone to another in this year – one likely won’t be included with Samsung’s foldable smartphone for 2 reasons.

The first and foremost reason, Samsung has avoided a Notch just like the plague. Every smartphone Samsung launched this year is Notch-less whether it’s Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus or super-power Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Therefore, there’s really no reason to believe that Samsung Galaxy X (foldable smartphone) will be backed by a Notch.

The second reason we should note that normally Notches are used to the sport of FaceTime sensors or Facial Recognition hardware just like Apple’s Face ID sensors, right? The Samsung foldable smartphone (rumored to be called Galaxy F) will entirely rework traditional smartphone design – every single component will be situated in an entirely new way.

And here is where the story ends. That’s all we know so far. We’ll make our comeback with quite a few more details as things are getting cleared more and more day by day. So, stay tuned for more updates.
