Samsung’s Long-awaited Foldable Screen Smartphone Arriving In 2019

The South Korean giant Samsung is considering launching foldable smartphones for years. The president of the mobile devices division, DJ Koh, has promised a foldable Galaxy Note for 2018. However, it seems that the device stayed for the next year.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the South Korean giant Samsung plans to launch a foldable smartphone in early 2019. The prototype is codenamed “Winner” and measures 7 inches when open. The screen can be folded in half “like a wallet”, showing a small bar-shaped display on the front, in addition to the cameras at the rear.

The initial launch would be on a smaller scale for specific markets and would gain a wider debut in the second half of 2019 if it succeeds. This device could be the start of a new category of products, next to the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note.

Sources tell the WSJ that the South Korean giant Samsung wants to be the first company to produce a folding screen phone. Top executives have given this project a higher priority in recent months. The idea is to combat the weak sales of smartphones; it predicts a below-expected profit due to the Galaxy S9.

The price could “easily exceed $1,500”, however, the South Korean giant Samsung bet that the novelty factor would be enough to convince some customers.

Some companies have already launched folding smartphones, such as ZTE Axon M: it has two screens that can work as one. Now, the South Korean giant Samsung, in turn, prepares a mobile phone whose unique display can be folded in half.

We saw at CES 2013 the South Korean giant Samsung’s first concept for a smartphone that turns into a tablet. In 2015, it worked on Project Valley, which would be basically a Galaxy S6 with two screens; but it never threw it. But, is it going now?
