Written by Lindah Nduwumwami on October 18, 2018
With Samsung’s 10th-anniversary Galaxy S10 now looking very special indeed, it has diverted attention away from the company’s struggle to deliver an even more radical smartphone. But now Samsung itself has exposed new details which reduce fears its ambitious project had become vapourware…
The news (via SamMobile) comes straight from the top. Speaking at the launch of its midrange Galaxy A9 smartphone, Samsung Mobile Division CEO DJ Koh hyped up the future of its folding Galaxy F proclaiming it will be two devices wrapped into one.
Koh said the Galaxy F is both a phone and tablet. When folded it will be a compact 4.6-inch phone, but unfold the phone and its bendable OLED display extend to 7.3-inches – larger than some of the company’s Galaxy Tab tablet range.
Stressing that the Galaxy F is not a gimmick, Koh said owners will have a tablet with powerful multitasking abilities which folds into one of the most pocketable phones on the market.
