According to industry sources, Samsung plans on launching the first foldable smartphone in March, along with the Galaxy S10 that will feature the fifth-generation (5G) network.
Yonhap news agency reported that Samsung plans on unveiling the Galaxy S10 smartphone in February along with the presumed foldable Galaxy F.
Samsung Electronics President Koh Dong-jin, who heads the mobile business said that the company would release the foldable smartphone within the first half of 2019 and the company will be shipping at least 1 million of the foldable smartphones.
Rumours suggest that Samsung would be showcasing the upcoming foldable smartphone in the Mobile World Congress in February, ahead of the official launch.
The much-awaited foldable smartphone, however, is not expected to support the 5G network.
While the price of the foldable smartphone has not been decided, industry watchers said it may cost around 2 million won ($1,770). The steep price is expected to limit sales.
The upcoming foldable smartphone from Samsung will come with an inward folding display and will sport a 7.4-inch screen when unfolded and a 4.6-inch display like a regular smartphone when folded.
