The Sunday Guardian - - Business - IANS

SAN FRAN­CISCO: Sam­sung’s much awaited and talked-about fold­able smart­phone would of­fer the func­tion­al­ity of a tablet com­plete with multi-task­ing and a big screen, the me­dia re­ported.

The Sam­sung fold­able phone would ba­si­cally be Sam­sung’s test bed de­vice to see how re­view­ers and the mar­ket re­act.

“Pos­si­bly when we start sell­ing the fold­able phone, it may be a niche mar­ket, but def­i­nitely, it will ex­pand. I’m pos­i­tive that we do need a fold­able phone,” CNET quoted DJ Koh, Mo­bile Head, Sam­sung as say­ing on Fri­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­port based on the in­ter­view with Koh, the fold­able phone would be avail­able glob­ally and would not “dis­ap­pear af­ter six to nine months af­ter it’s de­liv­ered”.

Fo­cus­ing and mov­ing for­ward to­wards the “larger screen” trend in the smart­phone mar­ket, the re­port claimed that a fold­able phone would let screen sizes ex­tend be­yond 6.5 inches.

Koh had con­firmed that Sam­sung’s up­com­ing de­vice will be launched in 2018 and could de­but in Novem­ber at Sam­sung’s De­vel­oper Con­fer­ence, the re­port added.

Ear­lier in Septem­ber, the South Korea-based com­pany re­leased a teaser of a phone with bend­able and fold­able dis­play tech­nol­ogy.
