Sorry Samsung fans, no Galaxy S9 unveiling at CES 2018

Sorry Samsung fans, no Galaxy S9 unveiling at CES 2018

When Samsung confirmed a year ago that it is commercially launching a foldable phone - believed to be called Galaxy X, the company's mobile chief, Koh Dong-jin, said that they are planning to release the device in 2018.

According to a report from ET News, the South Korean tech giant is planning to finalise the design of the foldable display for the smartphone in March, followed by the mass production of the panels in September. The handset carries the signature Galaxy smartphone design with the hardware home button on the front.

Koh also revealed that Samsung would be releasing its first foldable smartphone next year. This would allow us to carry phones with large displays and easily carry them in our pockets when not using them, but perhaps more important, the idea of using a phone that you can fold is just plain cool.

The 7.3-inch display of the foldable phone will be manufactured by Samsung Display. Samsung's mobile chief Koh Dong-jin stepped back from his earlier remarks on foldable phones during a press briefing in Las Vegas prior to the Consumer Electronics Show.

As of this writing, there is no information available on its technical specifications.

With each passing day, rumors and speculations regarding the Samsung Galaxy S9 are reaching to new heights.

What is known about the smartphone is that it will be a "super premium" product that will be priced more than the current premium phones from Samsung.

Samsung reportedly might offer 512GB internal storage model in selective countries or market.

Samsung J2 Pro (2018) is now available in Vietnam and shortly, it will also be available in the emerging markets of the world including Pakistan.

Asked whether foldable phones would be launched this year, he said the firm is working hard to develop such phones.

The latest report also gives an idea of how the foldable phone from Samsung will function. Share us your views by adding your comments below.
