LG is rumored to introduce the prototype of its own foldable phone during the CES trade show in January while the Chinese company is forecast to take the wraps off its own device by the end of this year.
For starters, let's summarize what we know so far. Thus, the Galaxy F series is expected to launch globally, and not be just a United States market exclusive. The company's conventional flagships traditionally used Snapdragon chips in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and China, while all other markets received their Exynos-equipped counterparts, but with the Galaxy F being anything but ordinary, it remains to be seen how Samsung approaches the project in terms of hardware availability.
Rumors say that phone will come out in three different versions: two large ones, 6.1 inches and 6.4 inches for the Plus, which will also come with an in-display fingerprint and the most affordable one 5.8 inches but they all have the same Samsung's Infinity Display. It has an extra four-inch screen on the outside, allowing users to enjoy basic features - like checking emails and messages - without having to flip it open.
Korean news site ETNews claims Samsung is going to remove the Iris Scanner, which has been around since the Galaxy Note 7, in favour of an in-display fingerprint scanner.
On the other hand, Samsung and Huawei have confirmed folding smartphone screen plans; but nothing has stated about when they will launch their products in the market. Along with this reports also tells that you won't be able to purchase this smartphone until next year, 2019. In an animated video teaser we can observe a V that unfolds, which can also be interpreted as a clue that leads us to a flexible device. As is common with many phones before launch, leaks of the features and specifications of the device are already getting out.
A foldable display phone is next big thing in the smartphone world.
Deliveries are expected to start in late December with the phone priced between just over £1,000 and just below £1,500.
That said, there are some potential downsides that Samsung was reportedly concerned about. A new report suggests that LG could unveil its first foldable-display phone at CES 2019.
