Samsung’s foldable phone, which the company showed off just last week, is coming out next year. The company already announced some of the features of the device, though it has remained tight-lipped about the pricing and availability of the device.
Today, a South Korean news agency is reporting that the company’s foldable phone, reportedly called the Galaxy F, will arrive in March 2019. The device will cost a whopping $1,770 which is obviously ridiculously high for a phone. Samsung hasn’t revealed many details about the device, though we know that the device has a 7.3-inch display when it’s fully open, and it can run up to 3 apps at a time.
In other, related news, Samsung is also planning to launch the company’s main flagship phone for the Galaxy S line, the Galaxy S10, in February. Much like usual, the Galaxy S10 is expected to be announced sometime after Mobile World Congress in February. The company is reportedly adding 5G support with the new device.
Samsung’s Galaxy F is going to be quite an interesting product. If the rumored pricing of the device is to be believed, the device is definitely not going to be appealing to many customers. This is, obviously, the first version of the product so it kind of makes sense — it’s supposed to be exclusive for now, and as the tech required to build the foldable display becomes cheaper, it’ll slowly get cheaper and more accessible over the years. I can see the foldable display coming to the Galaxy Note line in a few years time, to be honest.
