Samsung Is Launching Its Highly-Anticipated Foldable Phone In 2019
Samsung has reportedly made plans to venture into the foldable-screen market and is hoping to launch a version of its own very soon.
This long held dream could finally turn into a reality, as Wall Street Journal reported that the foldable handset dubbed ‘Winner’ is planned for launch in early 2019.
The phone will feature a 7-inch screen display, similar to the size of a tablet. It can be compacted into the size of a wallet, where the exterior of the phone will showcase a small display at the front and camera lens at the back of the phone.
The company had filed a patent application in 2017, but the final product will likely look different from initial sketches.
The upcoming handset is Samsung’s third flagship model following its ‘Galaxy S’ and ‘Galaxy Note’ series. It is targeted towards niche users such as mobile gamers. However, there are plans to broaden its market reach in the later half of 2019.
The one downside could be the price as the sleek, seductive display and high-end components could result in the model costing double the iPhone X..
