Everything We Know About Samsung’s Foldable Phone

Everything We Know About Samsung’s Foldable Phone

One of the most anticipated smartphones of, well, recent memory is Samsung’s foldable phone. Some have their own ideas
of what it should be called. We have – one idea was Samsung Winner which I’m personally all about. I like that a lot. I think it should be called the Winner. The other one is called the Galaxy F. And also the Galaxy X,
which is the more, you know, widely accepted name
for this foldable phone. Now, we know actually that Samsung is indeed working on a foldable phone that comes straight from DJ Koh. Still, we don’t know when to expect it. Probably not by the end
of 2018 is my guess. Wall Street Journal
came out with a report. They said maybe 2019. That seems a little bit more likely. One of the reasons why
I don’t think it’s going to be coming out this year is because, honestly, there are not
a lot of rumors about it. Nothing really concrete
that we’re seeing online, and that could mean that the phone isn’t really in production yet. However, we can make
some educated guesses. There’s some speculations
and we can just have a little fun with our imagination too. Samsung even had a video
with a foldable phone in it just a few years ago. That gave a hint at the time that Samsung was indeed working on a foldable phone. That was a few years ago,
and the company’s just been sort of, I guess, working
on it for this whole time. All in a day’s work for Samsung. One rumor that has made it
so far on the internets. It could have a seven-inch display. And diagonally that is. That’s a pretty big phone, right? Of course, it’s foldable. So, it’s not going to be
this huge giant tablet that you’re holding in your hands. You know, you could sort
of use it for a while. Close it up like a wallet. And once you’ve folded it up, put it in your pocket, like a wallet. It sounds kind of fragile, right? Kind of breakable. But Samsung very conveniently, very good timing, announced an unbreakable sort
of display for smartphones. That would be a good fit, I would imagine, with a foldable phone. Because, I mean, there is
another foldable phone out there. It exists. Called the ZTE Axon M. And it’s actually a
really interesting phone. And basically, it’s just two phones attached by a hinge in the middle. So, it’s kind of like a book. So, there’s already a
foldable phone out there. We’re hoping it’s not it. And we don’t expect that to be the design. Because it does make
the phone really thick. I mean the Axon M is just really chunky. It doesn’t inspire, sort of, the future of smartphones, per se. We’re banking and hoping on
the more sort of wallet design. Something else we’re expecting. A large battery. I’m imagining that it would need a pretty significantly large battery to power a seven-inch display. A larger battery means,
you know, a thicker phone. A heavier phone too. We are expecting this
phone to be expensive. I think it’s gonna be
closer to the $1,500 range. And we’re also expecting Samsung to have a very limited release of this. There are a lot of issues
that we have no idea about. We just do not know. This is kind of just what we’re
expecting and hoping to see. Maybe early 2019. Stay tuned. It’ll be interesting to see if Samsung includes its signature Infinity edge. Maybe they might not include
it on the Galaxy Winner. Right? Winner? Make it so, Samsung.

  1. I don't think they should've told us about it yet as Apple could be secretly planning to do this, since they do that to every phone Samsung comes out with!

  2. Everybody knows that nobody needed this but Samsung fans would still praise Samsung phones like they would be the second coming of Jesus even if they release literal shit.

    Samsung fans in a nutshell basically LMFAO

  3. I would buy the bigger version of this, which is the beautiful thing called a laptop. (Ik I get the fact that there's no screen on some sides, but I'd rather just get a laptop for $1.5k)

  4. This looks really neat can't wait to have!

    Until all my hopes and dreams are crushed when I place my eyes on the the price

  5. It's refreshing to see that they will be going back to plastic construction on this phone instead of the cheap all glass phones that break when dropped from a foot high

  6. After a decade of hype I'm starting to believe that Jesus, Santa, and Bigfoot could have an orgy and shit out a baby that could resemble something more similar to a real working prototype than we've been given thus far.

  7. Oh, my God! Unbelievably awesome! The other phone is basically two phones that close together, not a true foldable single phone. The Samsung phone looks like the screen itself is foldable. I hope this comes out in the near future! I would get this!

  8. It's astounding how many people on this comment section lack foresight, imagination, and any kind of vision for things to come. Not sure if people are being willfully ignorant or actually don't understand the full implications of a foldable display. Many of them are also the same type of people who thought books would destroy society and children's brains, vehicles were a passing fade, and more recently smart phones had no merit all while typing it on their now owned smart phone. Or maybe it's people are so unsure and resistant of change that they won't let themselves even entertain the idea that this is an innovation. Not sure why it annoyed me so bad probally because I deal with people who can't see past their own noses on a daily basis

  9. this design would make sense for using a smart phone over a tablet. Anything under 7" is not practical at all and a real pain in the ass to use, it makes more sense to just connect a tablet to a cheap phone with internet access today for most cases than dealing with the pain of using a "small phone"

  10. samsung had this technology available since before the boom of dumb small screen phones.
    they dumped probably all their old small screen useless tech already and coming now with something that makes sense over a tablet for portability and real use

  11. if it does not have a removable and replaceable battery, i'm out. if it needs recharging every 5 days or more im' ok- but not a day less. if they really want to sell these phones, you must respond to the consumer. monolith phones were always out of the question. what took you so long?

  12. Finally, the mechanical engineers in the smartphone industry have something to be proud of instead of remaining a sidekick to electronic and software engineers.

  13. Yeah, but can you crumple and uncrumple it like a piece of paper? Use it like a cheese grater and a potato peeler? No? I'm not impressed.

  14. The "Galaxy Tenfold" is a better name for the device in my personal opinion. I carries on the numerical numbering of their devices, and adds a cleverly tacked on "fold" into the name so if they wanted to continue on with the normal boring phone as a product separate line, and just make a affordable galaxy 10. They could do so, and also have the "Galaxy Tenfold next to it in the product line. Plus tenfold means "Ten times as great." So it's a really cool and clever name i believe I've fabricated for this yet to be product. Then again i believe i have a personal bias. O.o Let me know what you think!

  15. Ppl aren't getting the point. This isn't like ur old flip phone. Here the entire display can be folded. N it's big – a tablet usable as a smartphone.

  16. All I see with this phone is something that will be broken within a month and cost outrageous money to fix, I mean how many times do you think you can open and close this phone and one drop on the cement will really damage it, this may be worst than the Note 7 fiasco.

  17. I think the idea of a foldable phone sounds pretty dope, but I question the integrity of the screen folding over and over again. That’s a lot of wear on a daily basis. Buddha I think the idea of a foldable phone sounds pretty dope, but I question the integrity of the screen folding over and over again. That’s a lot of wear on a daily basis. Practicability is the other thing. Dope idea like I stated, but is a foldable phone practical in today’s tech world? Or just a cool feature that’s not really needed?

  18. Hopefully the Samsung galaxy foldable device will come with the stylus pen just like all the note series.. I will definitely buy though with exclusive price.

  19. Just saw the reveal, it looks hideous. It’s super thick when folded , who the hell wants that. It looks cheap and not practical. Sorry Samsung, this is not getting you an edge on iPhone…

  20. If that's what it's all for 2018 I'm out. It looks like old laptops with super sci-fi front end. Make this thing thin already!

  21. Its flexible, so there is far LESS risk of it cracking like every other smartphone out there. That alone makes it worth buying over the rest.

  22. I remember when cellphones first came into trend and were initially very heavy and bulky. Then manufacturers started making them as small as possible to the point where they could fit into your fist. That is before the smartphones came out. Then screens started getting bigger and bigger. 3 inches was considered HUGEEEE at first. Then 4, 5, 6… and eventually smartphones started reaching the sizes of tablets. Now everyone is going to start trying to make them small again and we are reverting to flip phones eventually. Another proof that the first phones that came out were the best. Long live the mighty Flip Phones! Amen!

  23. Ok that is kinda cool, but not really necessary…

    So Yeah let's make a phone the people dont need, but only want for looks…

    Sounds Familiar😂

  24. Samsung will always lead in smartphone tech. They are always the first to really make an undesirable or ridiculous idea look cool. The Smart watch, the Brick phone size – which Apple now depends on to stay competitive etc. Watch out for propaganda tech blogs and reviews from Apple fan boys and under achieving nerds about how bad it is even though it's not out yet. Some will give it 3 stars even though they haven't seen one yet ….. 3 years from now Apple will be forced (AS ALWAYS) to develop the iFOLD … suddenly all Apple Fanboys will pretend Apple invented the foldable phone …. this shit is just getting old ….
    FYI … I am an Apple fanboy 😂
