Samsung CEO Confirms Folding Galaxy F Phone


Samsung CEO Confirms Folding Galaxy F Phone

While Samsung ‘accidents’ (1,2,3,4,5) did more to leak the Galaxy Note 9 than any industry-insider, now the company’s CEO has taken things to the next level by officially confirming the most radical Galaxy smartphone yet… 
Samsung CEO DJ Koh has confirmed the company is not just developing a Galaxy with a folding display, but that it is in a race to get this potentially game-changing phone to market.
Speaking about the so-called ‘Galaxy F’, Koh stressed Samsung is "focusing on developing innovations that will be genuinely accepted and liked by consumers". What’s more, the company acknowledges rivals are trying to beat Samsung to the punch with this technology and it "didn't want to lose the world's first title".
Furthermore, Koh explained that the Galaxy F is not a one-off concept, but the beginning of a long-running new range, stressing: “We wouldn't have started [the project] if it was a going to be a one-time thing."
The timing of Koh’s comments are crucial. With clouds hanging over the future of Galaxy Note range, something which Apple may capitalise on, Samsung needs a new flagship smartphone which signals the company can keep pace not only with Apple but innovative Chinese phone makers like Vivo and Oppo who both made bezel-less, notch-less phones this year.
As such, the Galaxy Note 9 (with its curious design choice) also clearly marks the end of an iterative year for Samsung. While an all-new 10th anniversary Galaxy S10 will be first to highlight the company’s new innovation drive, it won’t come close to generating the attention a truly foldable phone will.
Even if the price of such change will be truly eye-watering
