  • Samsung Moves To Mid-Range Phones For Mobile Growth

But Samsung has been testing the idea of a bendable smartphone for years, according to The Verge.

In an interview with CNBC, Samsung's mobile division CEO, DJ Koh revealed that the company is looking to introduce its first foldable Galaxy as early as this year. However, he suggested that more details would be revealed at the Samsung Developer Conference scheduled for November 7 and 8. Koh also said that the company could start to release mid-range handsets a couple of times a year.

Foldable phones have been talked about for a long time, but so far we haven't really seen a worthwhile entry into the category.

Trump to headline ‘major rally’ for one-time rival Ted Cruz
On Friday, the president announced a " major rally " that would take place in "the biggest stadium in Texas we can find". Recent polls have shown O'Rourke a mere 1 percentage point behind Cruz in anticipation of election day on November 6.

Based on a tweet made by Ice Universe, Samsung is rumoured to be readying a new smartphone featuring four cameras, to be released this year. However, it will still come down to whether consumers can afford it and if they think it's worth the price. However, Koh said that while development has been complicated the process has nearly concluded. Koh reportedly said. "Every device, every feature, every innovation should have a meaningful message to our end customer". Implementing a depth-sensing system into its new flagships would allow Samsung to deliver faster and more accurate (i.e. secure) facial recognition and improve the polarizing AR Emoji functionality of its current high-end product family.

On the other hand, the Galaxy X - or whatever the company ends up calling it - is kind of a big deal. The device allegedly has a 7.3-inch foldable display panel. Unlike a flip phone that is split into two halves and joined by a hinge mechanism, Samsung's foldable handset will use a flexible screen that bends like a wallet. It's safe to assume that Samsung will be charging a hefty premium for the Galaxy X, especially if it's the first folding phone to hit the market. There have been phones that can fold, like the ZTE Axon M, but they typically utilize multiple displays.
