Last week Samsung showed off their Flex Display for the very first time, finally giving us an official glimpse at the foldable phone they've been working on for a couple of years. At the time, they only thing they gave us was that quick sneak peek (in the dark, no less) and the name of the technology. Thanks to a South Korean news organization, we might have a name, release date, and price.

According to the Yonhap News Agency, the phone will be known as the Galaxy F, a name that was rumored some time ago. The F assumedly stands for "foldable," so it's not exactly a creative homerun. The phone will supposedly launch in March of 2019, one month after the Galaxy S10 launches (and with 5G support, something the Galaxy F will not have). What sort of price are we looking at? Well, with the Galaxy F being a niche device, the priciest configuration could hit $1,770. That would make it the most expensive phone on the market by a considerable margin.

According to the report, Samsung hasn't come to a definite decision on price. While $1,770 sounds incredibly steep, keeping in mind that this device will function as both a high-end smartphone and a tablet. Furthermore, it's a new technology, which will always command a high price. Assuming this technology sticks around, expect phones like the Galaxy F to drop in price considerably over the next few years (or at least match up with current flagship prices, assuming they keep going up).


Are you still excited for the Galaxy F? I expect that plenty of consumers have been chomping at the bit ever since the plans were revealed two years ago, but that price is high enough to burst even the biggest bubble. Hopefully we'll have an official price in the very near future.
