Well that was quick. Less than a week after Samsung officially showed off its foldable smartphone fitted with its Infinity Flex Display, there’s now word that the Korean electronics giants plans to launch a fully functioning unit as early as March next year.
The news comes from sources closes the Korean online media agency, Yonhap News. Additional information also suggests that the Samsung is planning on having a shipment volume of one million of its foldable smartphones in the ready.
As a recap, Samsung’s foldable smartphone sports a 4.6-inch display in its folded, candybar mode. Once unfolded, the device transforms into a 7.4-inch tablet. In this mode, Samsung says that the device will be able to run up to three separate apps in a multi-window mode simultaneously.
While the phone is expected to ship out as early as March 2019, industry sources are also speculating that the phone will be making its official debut during MWC 2019. Which takes place the month before. It’s unlikely that the phone will ship out with support for 5G. Speculation also suggests that the phone could cost more than an iPhone XS, with a minimum starting price of US$1770 (~RM7404).
