Samsung Could Release Foldable Smartphone Next Year, Report Says

Samsung said that while its goal is to release a foldable device in 2018, there are multiple obstacles the development team is still facing.

Samsung received 395,000 pre-orders for its Galaxy Note 8 on the first day of pre-orders.

The Investor believes the Galaxy Note 9 could turn out to be a device that is capable of being folded in half. With an audio jack, you don't have to splurge for a new wireless headset and you won't have to worry about any mechanical noise at all.

"When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product".

One challenge Samsung might face is getting developers to tailor their applications to the new folding screens.

After Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017), Samsung India has now begun rolling out the Android Nougat update for Galaxy A9 Pro smartphone.

Rumors of a foldable phone have been swirling around Samsung ever since the company showcased a flexible display at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2013. AT&T put its cards down earlier with a killer buy-one-get-one-free deal, albeit with an entire spool of strings attached. For example, the company introduced the "Infinity" display technology with the Galaxy S8.

The firm is eyeing record sales with the new handset which is placed right against Apple's new iPhones launched globally on Tuesday. This latest software update will provide better security to the devices, which are among the best currently available.

The Note is set to hit the shelves this week in South Korea and some other countries.

Mass-producing a high-end foldable phone, Bloomberg said, will take time. That is a huge difference in the price of Rs 31,100 compared to the Galaxy S8 and Rs 23,100 in comparison to the Galaxy S8 Plus. The handset has been pre-ordered 2.5 times more than its predecessor, Note 7.

Coming to the camera specs of Galaxy Note 8, the phone comes with a dual rear camera. Multiply that by the 18 lease payments you'll be making, and you'll be saving $270 over the term of the device. So while the phone is bigger, it's not gigantic. The fingerprint scanner was placed on the back side, while it remains equipped with resistance and dust IP68 standards.
