Samsung foldable smartphone with 7.3-inch OLED display may launch in December

Samsung Galaxy S9 Release Date Rumors and Specifications

Samsung Mobile president DJ Koh has said that the next flagship will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February; dashing hopes that Samsung would be making an earlier announcement.

In September previous year, the CEO said Samsung's first foldable phone could hit the market in 2018, adding that a Note series model is in its roadmap.

Samsung Display will reportedly begin the manufacturing of the foldable OLED displays in March.

Citing industry sources, the South Korean publication has stated that the first foldable phone from Samsung will be equipped with a 7.3-inch display.

The latest report also gives an idea of how the foldable phone from Samsung will function.

Koh says that the UX, meaning the user interface and user experience, is the major hurdle for Samsung.

Fisker EMotion EV and flexible solid-state battery debut at CES
The glass roof features four zones of tint, each electrically adjustable to let in your desired amount of light. Equipped with five LIDAR sensors, the EMotion is said to be capable of up to level four autonomous driving.

Because it's an AMOLED panel, you also get Samsung's always-on display mode, which slaps the time, date and any notifications onscreen at all times, even when the phone is in standby.

What is known about the smartphone is that it will be a "super premium" product that will be priced more than the current premium phones from Samsung.

It's been a long time since we are hearing about the foldable smartphone that Samsung has been working on. Samsung's mobile chief Koh Dong-jin stepped back from his earlier remarks on foldable phones during a press briefing in Las Vegas prior to the Consumer Electronics Show. Will it be a game-changer that will compel other smartphone OEMs to launch foldable phones?

"It is hard to talk about the date of the launch now".

However, ET News reports that the project has recently moved beyond the development phase and is now formally in the mass-production phase - though we may not see them go on sale until early 2019. I guess we may need to wait for rumor 102 to confirm that the fantasy smartphone is for real.
