Samsung plans to launch a foldable smartphone this year

Samsung Moves To Mid-Range Phones For Mobile Growth

It also noted that we might see one such Samsung foldable smartphone by the end of 2018.

During a chat with CNBC, Samsung mobile boss DJ Koh said that "it's time to deliver" their foldable phone, which has been rumored or in the works for years. However, he suggested that more details would be revealed at the Samsung Developer Conference scheduled for November 7 and 8. While these details have not been confirmed officially, Koh said that most of the phone's uses will be available in "foldable status".

While we still don't have any word on the full-scale launch or the pricing of the device, we at least now know that such a device exists. Samsung in 2011 revealed plans to make a folding phone in its keynote address; as recently as a year ago, it showed a folding phone prototype to some members of the media.

He further revealed that users will be able to do most of the tasks when the tablet is in the folded state but they will have to unfold it for browsing or seeing something else.

Smartphones have become a bit predictable in the past few years, leaving consumers craving something new to send them running to stores for an upgrade.

The exec added that the development process is "complicated", but that the company has "nearly concluded" it. However, it would not be the Galaxy S10 or the long-rumored foldable and mostly unaffordable Galaxy F. An earlier unconfirmed report indicated that the internal, folding display will be 7 inches. That goes for the midrange Galaxy A-series, too, which this year will be announced as the first Samsung phones with triple cameras. It's just under four months before the end of 2018, and that means we should be seeing the first "innovative" Galaxy A handset anytime now.

When not in use, the secondary display can be turned into a touchpad, which could see it turned into a gaming console rather like Nintendo's DS range.
