World's first folding smartphone unveiled

Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

Royole FlexPai: World’s first foldable smartphone launched, check features

Ahead of its annual developer conference Samsung Developer Conference (SDC), the company has updated its profile image on Facebook and Twitter with a teaser of what's believed to be its new foldable phone, dubbed as Galaxy F aka Galaxy X.

Royole has made its mark with the world's first commercially-available folding smartphone-tablet hybrid, a feat massive and established mobile phone manufacturers have been racing towards for years. That means we may not get a clear look at how the exact final hardware will work. Now the company has several phones up its sleeves like the Galaxy S10 or the flip phone which is to debut in China but the foldable phone is said to be the most awaited-one out of all. Although it has so far been mum on exactly when, analysts expect a launch date in the first half of 2019 - any later and Samsung would run the risk of new Apple phones stealing its thunder.

Samsung's radically designed foldable smartphone is closer to launch, but it could be priced upwards of $1500 (or approx 1,09,432).

It is clear that Samsung's first foldable smartphone will include two Super AMOLED displays and the display is said to measure 7.29-inches diagonally. Many are taking that as a not-so-subtle hint that the Korean tech giant is planning to unveil the long-awaited foldable phone at its annual developer conference, which takes place November 7-8 in San Francisco.

According to SamMobile, Samsung will unveil Android Pie at the SDC18 event, as well as the new user interface for the foldable handset. Now there's another leaked render of the Note 9, but this time in a very clean looking white design. As per source, the Korean giant is doing so to give developers some details about the foldable display, so they can start working on related apps. That would, however, account for just 3.5 percent of projected global smartphone sales.

As you may have spotted from T3's report here, Samsung has officially begun production of its foldable phone.
