Samsung Decide to Launch Fold-able Smartphones by the End of 2017
It’s a bit strange to see the hype building ships coming from Samsung leaders, when we know that there are things more cool much there. After all, how can the phone be interesting with just about expanded view and a little narrow edges? Typical right to a certain extent?
According to The Korea Herald and ETNews, both Samsung and LG reportedly prepping phones folding to release somewhere later this year. Both of these projects has been named as the “Galaxy X” and “Valley Project”, respectively.
Samsung, according to the report, work on the combination of the phone as well as a CD with a hinge in the middle, which will be used to house the 7-inch tablet. For convenience, and also also added an external display. It is said that more than a hundred thousand units of the device to be under production, with potential suppliers to roll in the third quarter.
According to the report, what is worrying Samsung is the fear of losing the title of “first smartphone folding in the world” for Chinese companies, many of which are already working on their own solutions.
LG, which is said to be working for customers, it can launch the same number of devices in the fourth quarter. Both companies have been working on similar technologies for a long time, so it probably will not be too uncommon to expect a limited roll in later this year.
It is still unlikely that the phones will reach mass production until 2018.
