Some time ago, reports that Samsung was in the midst of developing its very first smartphone with a foldable display began appearing online, and later rumours then referred to the phone as the Galaxy X. However, new concept renders of the phone have appeared online, and outright refer to it as the Galaxy F.
Images of these renders first appeared on the Dutch-based mobile tech site Nieuwemobiel.NL, and according to the site, these renders are said to have been made based on a “deep dive into the patents” that Samsung currently has on folding devices, along with a number of schematic drawings that were used to make these renders.
As seen from the renders, the Galaxy F seems to feature a single and seamless display, and without a split in the middle of it. Having said that, the device’s hinge does seem to look a little bit on the thick side. On top of that, it looks as though the phone doesn’t fold flat or all the way, and the base of the display is still visible.
Also visible on the phone is a dual camera setup, as well as a fingerprint sensor. But, as pointed out by the source, it’s not entirely impossible to believe that Samsung could integrate the sensor directly into device’s display in the future.
To be absolutely clear, these rendered images of the Galaxy F are merely concepts, and nothing about the phone has been confirmed. So with that said, we do ask that you view these images with a healthy dose of skepticism. At least until Samsung makes an official announcement about it.
