Will Samsung Release a Foldable Smartphone in 2018? Dylan Duarte September 4, 2018 News Samsung, don’t play games with my heart. We will have words, and some of them will be cuss words. Leaks had us believing that we’d be getting a foldable Samsung Smartphone in 2017. Obviously, that didn’t happen. Cue sad “whomp whomp” noise. Now, it’s 2018, and the idea of a foldable Galaxy X was dangled in front of us first in January, and then again in July. Later that month, rumors swirled that maybe the foldable phone would be part of the Galaxy F Series. Now the rumors insist that the phone is getting closer. Samsung CEO DJ Koh hinted that they could debut the phone at their developer conference in November. While this would mean a 2018 debut, it doesn’t necessarily mean that consumers could purchase the phone before 2019. According to Koh, the “mystery device” that he’s referring to has been complicated to develop, and we can assume after years of companies trying to get a foldable device out there and this new technology is probably pretty complicated. The first prototype was unveiled way back in 2012. While Samsung has been at the forefront of this new technology, they’re far from the only company working with it. Lenovo is not only working on a bendable phone, but a tablet as well. Microsoft wants a dual-screen Surface device, and LG even released a foldable 65-inch OLED TV earlier in 2018. Foldable technology has the potential to revolutionize the smartphone world. The only question right now is when will we finally get our hands on it and whose name will be stamped on the back?
