The foldable phone era has officially begun. Samsung introduced the world to its first foldable phone this week, a device rumored to be called the Galaxy X or Galaxy F. This was not a typical announcement with every detail on display as they were for the Galaxy S9 or Note 9unveiling. Rather, Samsung teased its foldable phone through a short video and by hoisting aloft a working prototype in an executive’s hand on stage.
Although Samsung never displayed the foldable phone up close — not even behind museum glass — the device is plenty real. It’s conceptualized enough to earn Google’s backing. In fact, Samsung’s project seems to have spurred official Android support for all foldable phones, no matter the manufacturer. Meanwhile, Samsung gathered developers in a Wednesday afternoon session to share a few more details, such as the phone’s 4.5 and 7.3-inch screen sizes.
Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t reveal too much about the design of the phone, beyond the display and what it can do, but we do know that you’ll be able to use the phone when it’s folded up as well, and it will act like a traditional smartphone in this mode. Samsung also announced it’s working with Google to develop a new user interface for Android on its smartphone — dubbed OneUI — and it will allow for features specific to foldable phones. All of these announcements were made at Samsung’s developer conference, meaning the company still needs third-party developers to bring foldable phone support to their apps.
The Samsung Galaxy X mobile features a 5.0″ (12.7 cm) display with a screen resolution of Full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) and runs on Android v7.0 (Nougat) operating system. The device is powered by Quad core (2.4 GHz, Dual core, Kryo + 2 GHz, Dual core, Kryo) processor paired with 6 GB of RAM. As far as the battery is concerned it has 4000 mAh. Over that, as far as the rear camera is concerned this mobile has a 18 MP camera . Other sensors include Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer. So, does it have a fingerprint sensor? No, it doesn’t. For graphical performance that can make games run smoothly, this phone has got a Adreno 540 GPU.
RELEASE DATE AND PRICE.
Samsung officially unveiled the Infinity Flex display at its 2018 developer conference on Nov. 8, but we still don’t know much about the phone it’ll arrive on, or when it will hit shelves. The company has said it plans to start mass production in the next few months, meaning we’re likely looking at a release date in 2019 or later.It’s still unknown how much the Galaxy X might cost, but it’s potentially going to be a lot. The head of research at Golden Bridge Investment told the Korea Times that the phone could run 2 million won, which translates to $1,841 in U.S. dollars. Even if Samsung were to adjust pricing based on region, you’d still expect to pay a lot for a foldable phone, since the Galaxy Note 8, which doesn’t fold, debuted at $929.
