There is fresh information relating to the foldable smartphone from Samsung that the device might sport a huge 6000mAh battery, possibly split into two to facilitate better designing. The foldable smartphone from Samsung is likely to be announced in the MWC 2019 in February and then released to the market in the months of March/April 2019. Remember the regular Samsung Galaxy S10 phones will be launched in February and then in March, one expects to see the 5G enabled device on which some details are already in the public domain. The foldable Samsung phone may follow these, if one went by the rumours.
There is still no clarity on what name Samsung will assign to this phone. It could be simply Samsung Galaxy Fold or just Galaxy F. The main display when unfolded will be of 7-inch size and it will be an AMOLED display. The report on the upcoming device mentions that 8GB RAM and internal storage 128GB. It is expected that Samsung may stick with just one variant of the device.
On the operating system, it is expected to be the Android Pie, version 9 but Samsungâ€™s OneUI might be the skin over it.
Other unconfirmed reports indicate that this Samsungâ€™s foldable phone may sport 2 x 12MP cameras in the rear with an 8MP sensor in the front for selfies. Many of these details usually emerge from the vendors of components, although, in the case of Samsung, their own subsidiaries make some of the key components.
The rumour mills have not spared any effort at making a wild guess on the pricing of this foldable phone as well. According to a South Korean source, Samsung could sell it for 2 million won (approx. Rs 1,28,000). One of the starting points for these price rumours could have been the Chinese foldable phone FlexPai, which is being sold at around $1,800 and expected to ship later this year. The report says Samsung will make a million units of this foldable phone.
