"First, Samsung needs to show foldable smartphones are commercially viable".

Lastly, while we may see the hardware at SDC this week, it's also said that Samsung will showcase the software UI it has designed for this foldable device.


Samsung could be about to reveal its rumoured "folding phone" this week at a developer's conference being held in San Francisco.

Samsung will present its foldable phone at the developer conference that starts tomorrow. For the moment at least, there are no details on which processor, how much RAM, how many cameras, or what size battery this foldable phone might have. The rumor mill suggests that the Samsung Galaxy F will sport a 7.29-inch primary display when it is in tablet mode and a 4.58-inch secondary display when the display is folded and it is used as a smartphone. The phone has been codenamed as Valley and victor also. It looks like a real clunker, but these first-generation devices are usually the first step toward a viable screen device.


Little-known Chinese tech firm Royale has beaten Samsung in launching a foldable phone. Naturally, there has been no hint of a price tag, but you can guarantee that buying the foldable phone will not be something that your wallet will thank you for.

Bending the phone and straightening it back out actually takes a bit of force: it's nowhere near as effortless as flipping open an old school flip phone. The phone, however, has been delayed due to various issues. She added that the plastic display was beginning to lift a little over the hinges, and made an "audible crunching sound" while being folded.


Samsung is emphasizing on the app experience as they're going to preview it for developers this week. Now, with just days left before the marquee event, the company has teased the flexible feature of the phone. Despite all the unfulfilled Project Valley and Galaxy X rumors of previous years, it's hard not to feel a little excitement for what Samsung might unveil later this week at its developer conference in San Francisco.
