SAMSUNG'S 'FOLDING' SMARTPHONE WILL COST YOUDate: 2018-11-14
The apparent title for Samsung's folding device is known as The Glaxay F, and it is going to cost you if you are interested in buying such a device.
The F probably stands for 'folding' or 'foldable', if the speculation about the name is correct, but that’s not all there is to it.
Samsung is expected to show off its new flagship device, the Galaxy S10 (unless the naming convention changes for the anniversary), in February next year. We might get a closer look at the folding phone during the February reveal too. After that, a variant of the Galaxy S10 – which will reportedly sport 5G functionality – and the Galaxy F will be unveiled in March 2019, according to industry sources speaking to the Yonhap News Agency.
A price has also been bandied for Samsung's foldable device, though it is speculation rather than based on any inside Samsung info, and it's a whopping R25,500. That's cheaper than a top-spec iPhone XS Max but still out of reach for many users. Even so, Samsung's expecting to ship at least one million units of their experimental folding hardware next year. Not big numbers by Samsung's standards but for a technology barely old enough to stand without its legs wobbling?
That's a lot of confidence.
