Typically, nothing too noteworthy comes out of this annual event, though, this year might be different. This is because as the device is foldable, the same camera can be used to click photos or selfies by just turning the phone around.

Years of speculation and rumors about a Samsung-made phone with a foldable display might finally be reaching some sort of resolution.

While Samsung has remained tight-lipped about the Galaxy foldable phone till now, at an exclusive media R&D centre visit in Seoul, Samsung did drop some hints about it. Samsung apparently doesn't want the "foldable" display aspect to be the only highlight of the phone. However, there are reports that Huawei is aiming to beat Samsung here by delivering its foldable phone first.

World Wide Worx MD Arthur Goldstuck says: "Folding phones are clearly still a gimmick but, more significantly, they represent a major advance in technology that will come into its own as use cases evolve". Folding an OLED display puts it under stress and will eventually damage it.

Here's how The Bell puts it, but mind you, the translation is a bit wonky.

It is clear that Samsung's first foldable smartphone will include two Super AMOLED displays and the display is said to measure 7.29-inches diagonally. The 4.58-inch display is located on either side of the front or back of the product when folded. However, we're excited to see what the company will have to offer. We don't have a confirmed date yet but many are speculating it to launch on November 7 at the Samsung Developers Conference 2018 which is to be held in San Francisco.
