Image of the week In a galaxy far, far away
Garnering considerably fewer “inches” (as we say in old media) in this part of the world than Apple’s iPhone X this week was Samsung’s launch of the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone, which happened on the same day.
Here, Samsung president DJ Koh speaks during a media event for the device in Seoul, South Korea, with the big news being that Samsung hopes to launch a “foldable” phone next year. He didn’t mean a nostalgic resurrection of the flip phones of old, but rather a device that can completely bend in half like a cosmetics compact. Samsung already makes flexible and curved displays, but has yet to produce a screen that can fold in half. #Goals. Photographer: SeongJoon Cho/Bloomberg
