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

Samsung's profits hit record

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.

Facebook to reportedly release an Echo Show competitor with facial recognition
Cheddar also notes services like Spotify and Netflix could also make their way to this device, although that remains unconfirmed. Facebook could decide to lower the price when the device is first released in order to help it get some traction from consumers.

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.
