OLED is an emerging display technology that enables beautiful and efficient displays and lighting panels. OLEDs can be made flexible, bendable and foldable and these next generation displays will enable radical new devices and products.
Over the past few years, Samsung has been rumored to have a foldable device that’s on the way. And now Samsung has finally announced it’s Galaxy F which will be releasing sometime next year.
The device: Galaxy F, is expected to feature as both a phone and a tablet. The device will remain usable with the external display which will be 4.6 inches when folded and 7.6 inches in primary OLED display.
“When we deliver a foldable phone, it has to be really meaningful to our customer,” said DJ Koh, CEO at Samsung. “If the user experience is not up to my standard, I don’t want to deliver those kind of products.” he added.
Back in 2013, Samsung worked on a similar concept, the YOUM. The company showed several prototypes with curved, bendable and even foldable displays.
No official release date for the product has been announced, but more information on the Galaxy F is expected to be disclosed at the Samsung Developer Conference in November.
“Possibly when we start selling the foldable phone, it may be a niche market, but definitely, it will expand.” said Koh
