At its annual developer conference, Samsung gave the world a glimpse of its upcoming foldable phone with a flexible display. Samsung’s new foldable phone, which has been called Galaxy X in past reports is using the company’s “Infinity Flex” flexible display technology, which allows the tablet-like screen to be folded so that it fits inside the user’s pocket.
While there are many questions about Samsung’s foldable phone, it looks like the company will manufacture at least one million units when these devices hit the market next year. The report comes from Korea’s Yonhap, which quotes Samsung’s President of Mobile Communications Dong-Jin Koh as saying that the company is looking at the one million initial production units.
Koh made the remarks in a press conference, though he said he could not give a release date for the foldable phone. However, Samsung is expected to release in the first half of 2019. “I can not date it, but I will release it until the first half of next year,” he was quoted as saying.
