Samsung's rumored foldable smartphone said to be moving into mass production

Samsung a year ago confirmed that the company was aiming for release sometime in 2018, but noted that this wasn't guaranteed ... The Korea Herald, who spoke to Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh, reports a slightly different story. If the highly anticipated smartphone does not get unveiled by December this year, it may get officially introduced by early 2019. Fact that it is working on mass-production phase indicates that it made a decision to release foldable Smartphones.

Rumor has it panels will be manufactured in September while the foldable displays will be developed beginning this March. It is planning to manufacture final products in November.

The latest in the ongoing saga comes from the South Korean publication The Electronic Times, which states that Samsung has set a schedule to move from development to production and could unveil the phone before the end of the year. Chinese smartphone manufacturer Lenovo has showcased a couple of foldable smartphones and tablets hybrid devices back in Berlin IFA 2017, which made companies concerning the topic seriously. But if a new report is to be believed, there are still many months to go before the device finally makes its debut.

It is evident that Foldable Galaxy X will cost higher that existing premium smartphones that Samsung sells.

Another interesting tid-bit in this report is uncovered plans for Samsung to show this new technology to the industry behind closed doors in September. "Foldable Smartphones are targeting "ultra-premium markets" as they surpass both performance and price of current premium Smartphones." said a representative for an industry.

Samsung isn't the only major player working on foldable displays, with rival Apple long rumored to be working with LG on a display for a foldable iPhone.
