Im­age of the week In a galaxy far, far away

The Irish Times - Business - - INTERVIEW -

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
