The upcoming Samsung foldable phone - rumoured to be called Galaxy X - will deliver "meaningful" features and will not be a gimmick, Koh said to CNET in an interview. The concept showed a foldable device with a large internal screen and a second smaller screen on the outside.
The Galaxy A7 is rocking a triple-camera at the back with a 24MP+8MP+5MP configuration, along with a single 24MP unit at the back. According to the CEO of Samsung Mobile, we've got another smartphone to look forward to - one that won't be quite so traditional as the company's headline handset.
Either way, what we held much onto was Koh's last comment "But definitely, it will expand". "If the user experience is not up to my standard, I don't want to deliver those kinds of products", he added.
Regardless, Samsung already confirmed it doesn't see the foldable device as an experiment but that start of a new product range meant to be sold simultaneously with the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines as its third flagship alternative revised on an annual basis. "The images you can take on this phone was previously unheard of", said Roy Min, marketing, Samsung HQ. The Galaxy A7 is the only device in this comparison that features a Super AMOLED screen, while the remaining two phones sport an IPS LCD panel.
Focusing and moving forward towards the "larger screen" trend in the smartphone market, the report claimed that a foldable phone would let screen sizes extend beyond 6.5 inches.
SamMobile's reporting says the device will sport a 7.3-inch primary OLED display and a 4.6-inch external OLED display.
The rumor continues to depend so quickly on the long-awaited and very deferred Samsung folding phone that it begins to look like the Galaxy F (for fast), perhaps the flawless name for this fast-growing generator of interest among technologists.
This Samsung phone will not lack the Bixby virtual assistant, the Samsung Health fitness tracker or the Samsung Pay payment service.
A developer conference seems like an odd venue for Samsung to announce a product that's been anticipated for so many years.
Samsung is known to release smartphones in the fall that actually serve as tests for new features. Huawei reportedly plans to release a foldable handset in limited quantities in 2019, and Lenovo and Xiaomi have also teased their own prototypes. In addition to that, he also said that the camera system is evolving and improving as well so they will spread the next-generation technology across their entire collections of Galaxy phones so everybody can come in contact with the innovation even though they are on a budget.
The device can be used as a tablet, before being folded into a smartphone. In short a phone that can transform to become a tablet when opened up.
