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....

More of a gimmick imo.. but when they do release it, the Note 9 might drop to my price range 

 

Btw.. i was more impressed by the improvements they’re making to Bixby!

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.

Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 128gb

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.

The video shows it folded then slipped into an inside pocket. It looks quite pocketable.

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.

Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones.
