Samsung Mobile CEO Dongjin Koh in his interview with CNBC told some details about the development of a smartphone with a flexible display. He noted that the product was quite difficult to develop, however, the work is almost complete.
For the first time, the South Korean company told about its plans for a smartphone with a flexible screen in September 2017. Then it was announced that the novelty will be positioned as a premium business device, like the Galaxy Note line. But since we already saw Galaxy Note 9, a flexible smartphone will get a different name. According to rumors, the new line will be called Galaxy X or Galaxy F.
Dong Jin Co at the IFA said that now the work is underway to make the future device appear to be less like a tablet in the unfolded state. But in general, the development is almost complete. Also, there are rumors that the flexible Samsung smartphone will not use hinges. But due to which the body itself will not bend yet. According to reports, the diagonal of the screen of the future novelty will be 7 inches, which is commensurate with a small tablet.
As the head of the mobile unit of Samsung, a flexible smartphone can present in November this year, at a conference Samsung for developers in San Francisco. Thus, Samsung is striving to become the first company to enter the market with such a solution.
