So Samsung have given us a sneak preview of their soon to be foldable phone. Unknown name as yet but it will have a 7.3 inch Infinity Flex display. Going into serious production in the next few months
I do hope it's the Galaxy X....
Looks good but put a price on it.....
From what you can see @jonsie, it definitely looks interesting and I prefer Galaxy X to Galaxy F.
However, I wouldn't want to guess the price but I'm sure it'll be over the £1k mark. If it's under £1k I'll be amazed.
I don't think it will be a rival to the Note 9 or the next Note which rumour has it, will be the last, as there is no mention of a stylus.
It looks a clever design, but I think it’s another example of manufacturers creating a need, rather than providing a solution. It doesn’t look particularly slim when folded, and it’s not really pocketable. The inevitable high cost might be justified if it’s your only device, but I can’t help wondering whether a separate phone and tablet would still offer the best experience.
Before photochromatic spectacle lenses people had to swap between shaded and clear tint vision. In a way, photochromatic lenses ruled out the need for more than one pair of glasses or additional sunshades.
So in a way, Samsung and other manufacturers are trying to improve things by introducing new technology. Everything seems like a gimmick if nobody has ever needed to use someting before. I thought the multiple application, continuity and general features were a good demonstration of what people can do.
There was no mention about durability other than the folding and unfolding before failure (FoUnfoBF). Certainly is interesting. And in the interest of no long drawn out court cases, lets just call it a Galaxy F.
