Samsung has refreshed its smartphone line-up starting with the M-series, and now the company is gearing up to come up with A-series (2019) devices. We have already learned that Samsung is working on three devices – the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50. Some of these smartphones have already been spotted in leaks, benchmarks and renders too. Now, a fresh leak spills the beans over the expected specifications and features too. msnTarGet.com

Samsung Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A50 full specifications leaked ahead of launch

Samsung Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A50 full specifications leaked ahead of launch

Samsung Galaxy A10 leaked specifications and features

According to a leak on MySmartPrice, the Galaxy A10 will be an entry-level model in the A-series, and will come with a plastic body. It will feature a 6.2-inch Infinity V display and have HD+ resolution. Under the hood, an Exynos 7884B SoC clocked at 1.6GHz is expected, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. Fun2Ind.com

Talking about cameras, a single 13-megapixel snapper at the back, and a 5-megapixel snapper on the front is likely to be in tow. The smartphone will lack a fingerprint scanner, but will come with face unlock feature. There will be two SIM card slots, and a dedicated micro SD card slot for further expansion. To keep things ticking, the smartphone will pack a 4,000mAh battery, but come with 5W charging over microUSB. soas.in

Samsung Galaxy A30 leaked specifications and features

Coming to Galaxy A30, the smartphone will come with 3D glossy back made from plastic material. There will be a 6.4-inch Infinity U super AMOLED display running at full HD+. It will be powered by an Exynos 7904 SoC paired with 3GB / 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB storage. In the photography department, a dual camera setup comprising of a 16-megapixel main sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor with ultra-wide lens is expected. For selfies and video calling, a 16-megapixel front camera is likely to be in tow. mobask.com

To keep things ticking, a 4,000mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging over Type C will be in place. The smartphone is also likely to come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The leak also hints at Samsung Pay Mini, Bixby, Dolby Atmos and AR sticker support.

Samsung Galaxy A50 leaked specifications and features

Lastly, the flagship model in the series will reportedly pack an in-display fingerprint scanner. It will share the same design and display as the Galaxy A30. Under the hood, a it will be powered by an Exynos 9610 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, or 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. msnTarGet.com

In the photography department, a triple camera setup of 25-megapixel primary sensor, a secondary 5-megapixel depth sensor and a third 8-megapixel sensor with ultra-wide lens will be in tow. Up front, there will be a 25-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling. Just like the other two A-series smartphones, the Galaxy A50 will also come with a 4,000mAh battery featuring 15W fast charging over Type C.

There is, however, one thing that the leak doesn’t clarify – the Android OS version that these phones will run on. Currently, the flagship smartphones are being updated to Android Pie OS, but the older devices are still stuck on Android Oreo. Even the recently launched Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 don’t come with Android Pie OS, which is something disappointing.

We received an anonymous tip via email from an alleged inside source in Samsung's retail channel. The tip consists of two sheets with the detailed specs of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e. We cannot verify that these are the correct specs but they do fall in line with the numerous leaks we've covered in the previous weeks.

Exclusive: Here are the final, detailed specs of the Samsung Galaxy S10 trio

Exclusive: Here are the final, detailed specs of the Samsung Galaxy S10 trio
Exclusive: Here are the final, detailed specs of the Samsung Galaxy S10 trio
We reported on some of the details found in the sheets, like the new 10MP f/1.9 selfie camera that can capture 4K video. It will have dual-pixel AF but the sheets don't mention optical stabilization, which was reported as a new feature. We've also heard of the new super slow-mo capabilities of the Galaxy S10 trio - they'll be able to capture 0.4s-0.8s of video, twice as long as their predecessors. msnTarGet.com

Mostly the specs are a rehash of what's been rumored for awhile now but there are some interesting bits, like the promised 800 nits of screen brightness - so far we've not tested a Galaxy flagship with more than 700 nits in our office. Fun2Ind.com

Another deviation from what we've seen rumored is the screen size of the Galaxy S10+. The insider specs sheet claims a 6.3-inch diagonal of 3040x1440px resolution, whereas rumors say a 6.4-inch display. mobask.com

Then there are the cameras - the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 have triple rear cameras (12 f/2.4 45-degree tele / 12MP f/1.5 77-degree regular / 16MP f/2.2 fixed-focus 123-degree ultra-wide) while the Galaxy S10e is listed as having a regular and an ultra-wide camera, while rumors suggested it will stick with the regular + tele configuration of the Galaxy S9+. soas.in

The claim that the Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e have the world's first selfie camera to capture 4K video is something the Nokia 8 might want to argue with.

There are the final tidbits such as the new 10 scene optimizer settings and the new Zoom and Color point effects in the camera.

The three Galaxy S10 flagships will be unveiled in less than 10 days and all of these leaks will be put to an end. Stay tuned until then as there will likely be more leaks in the meantime.

Samsung had been playing a rather lackluster game in the budget smartphone segment in India which comprises of the smartphone market priced between 7k and 13k. And by this I mean it didn’t have smartphones in this segment that could compare to its competition in terms of the specs that were being offered. But it seems like Samsung has learnt from the past and is now ready to make amends in the segment. And this is rather clear in its introduction of the new Galaxy M series smartphones with much better specs than its predecessors. We have already reviewed the Galaxy M10 in detail and found it to be an impressive offering in its segment. Now, here’s my review of the Samsung Galaxy M20 which is the higher variant between the two M Series smartphones launched so far. msnTarGet.com

Samsung Galaxy M20 Review: Hits the sweet spot with its battery

Samsung Galaxy M20 Review: Hits the sweet spot with its battery

Design of the Samsung Galaxy M20

Right off the bat, the first aspect that anyone notices about a device is how it looks, and the Samsung Galaxy M20 shares its physical traits with affordable sibling Galaxy M10 and some of the other smartphones in this segment. It comes with a waterdrop notch like Honor 10 Lite, which has been termed as ‘Infinity-V’ and is a first for Samsung. As a matter of fact, this is the first time that the South Korean company has incorporated the notch design into its smartphones. It seems like an attempt from Samsung to incorporate itself into the segment by picking up design cues from other smartphones and pick up designs that are trending. Fun2Ind.com

Unlike other smartphones that are there in this category which include the Redmi Note 6 Pro, Honor 10 Lite which have metal or glass back panels, Samsung went for a polycarbonate back panel which has rounded corners to meld into the display. The back panel has the dual-camera setup in a vertical arrangement on the top left corner with the flash below it and the fingerprint sensor on down the middle. The device has two microphone openings, one on the top panel and another on the bottom beside the single speaker grille, 3.5mm port and a USB-C port. The volume rocker and the power button are on the right hand panel while the left panel houses the hybrid-SIM slot which has separate slots for two SIM cards and a MicroSD card of up to 256GB. MobAsk.com

Moving on to the display of the Galaxy M20, it features a 6.3-inch FHD+ (2340 x 1080p) PLS TFT display which is Samsung’s own technology similar to TFT. The color reproduction of the display is bright and typical of Samsung’s saturated displays, which is impressive by all means. One of the more appreciable aspects of the display is that it is quite bright and you would not have any any problem with its outdoor visibility.

There were two things that surprised me, which was how light the smartphone is considering that it is packing a 5,000mAh battery and is not much heavier than the 3,300mAh packing Galaxy Note 8 which I use as my daily driver. The other thing that surprised me in terms of the design of the smartphone is how well Samsung has incorporated a proximity sensor as well as ambient sensor on the upper thin bezel, and it surprisingly works well too. Soas.in

The volume rocker and the power key seems much better than the previous Samsung phones in this segment and are much more solid now without anything feeling loose. This has been typical in the mid ranged and the costlier Samsung smartphone, and the inclusion in the budget segment is an improvement of sorts for the company. The inclusion of Type-C for charging and interface with other devices is also an improvement and the fact that this comes with fast-charging capabilities also earns a thumbs up.

Booting up to the software of the Galaxy M20, I observed that Samsung has stuck to its Experience UI despite having introduced the new OneUI which has been professed as a big improvement over the previous one. Galaxy M20 does not yet have Android 9 Pie and is still stuck at Android 8.1 Oreo after the January 2019 security patch. The UI itself is no different from what we have seen in the previous Samsung devices, and we hope Samsung brings OneUI to this segment of devices as well.

Performance of the Samsung Galaxy M20

There are a few firsts for Samsung with the new Galaxy M smartphones and the inclusion of a whole new Samsung Exynos chipset in the Galaxy M20 is on of them. The Exynos 7904 processor that has been used in the Galaxy M20 is a new processor that has recently been launched by the Samsung. It is an octa-core processor which has two ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 1.8GHz for high power tasks and six ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz for the regular tasks. The processor uses Mali-G71 GPU which is efficient enough to run games like PUBG Mobile without a hitch on high graphics. Soas.in

The Samsung Galaxy M20 variant which I reviewed had 4GB RAM which was capable of handling heavy apps and switching between them frequently seemed snappy and went about without a hitch. Even using apps in the split screen view didn’t seem to deter performance of the device. One of the concerns that I had was whether the background apps are killed after a while, and it seems that it usually takes a long while before the app is killed and only an iteration is there in the background apps. I noticed that the smartphone produced negligible heat when playing games like Asphalt and PUBG Mobile even at longer stretches which is definitely one of the bigger positives considering how important smartphone gaming has become. Fun2Ind.com

Moving on to the battery performance of the Samsung Galaxy M20, it has been impressive to say the least. I will mention outright that generally I am not too heavy a smartphone user and in my regular medium use of the smartphone, it easily lasted 1.5 days with a single full charge. This includes a couple of PUBG matches a day, a couple of product shots, 30-40 minutes of streaming high quality video, browsing social media for the rest of the day. But to test out the extended battery capability of the device, I extended the usage and the gaming hours to match heavy usage and the battery still lasted about a day on a single charge.

Now coming to the Galaxy M20’s camera capabilities, I have to admit that I had expected much better results considering that Samsung excels in optics. It is one of the primary talking points of its higher end smartphones, the company never ceases to surprise me with its below-par optics in the budget segment. The daylight shots seem perfectly fine which is expected, but the quality deteriorates as the light intensity decreases and so does capturing correct colors. The rear-camera combo of 13 megapixel primary sensor with a lens of f/1.9 aperture and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor and 120 degree field of view lens. The front camera is not too better off and the software has a tendency to overexpose the background in bright light to adjust the skin tone, while in low light it has difficulty in maintaining accuracy. msnTarGet.com

The software integration of the Face Unlock is pretty accurate (slightly slow), but definitely better than the Galaxy M10. The fingerprint sensor is pretty snappy and seems at par with even costlier devices.

Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy M20 is a definite improvement over the previous Galaxy On series and Galaxy J series smartphones that we have seen. It shows that Samsung is willing to move towards making better phones for the budget segment, even though it has not reached there yet. The Galaxy M20 has impressive battery backup and the great display with performance which is quite up to the mark. But one of Samsung’s old faults of not incorporating better camera modules persists, considering the competing brands excel in the camera department especially.

In terms of the pricing, the variant I reviewed with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is priced at Rs 12,990 which seems like fair pricing for the device even when comparing its positives and negatives to smartphones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2.

2019 kick-started with some top smartphones from Xiaomi, Huawei and its sub-brand Honor, Realme and many more. Redmi Note 7 is in the limelight after its China launch. Two new variants of Realme C1 were launched, while Realme 3 is on its way.

Nokia 9 is expected to be the first major smartphone launch of this year. The smartphone was rumored to go official last year, but the launched has been pushed ahead at least a couple of times for some unknown reasons. It seems that HMD Global is skipping the MWC unveil in favor of a dedicated launch for the smartphone. The Nokia 9 will be the first smartphone to jump to as many as five cameras on the back of MsnTarGet.CoM.

Evan Blass tweeted a picture of the device called Nokia 9 Pureview Beholder, which confirms five cameras on the back and dual cameras at the front. The addition of Pureview branding suggests the ZEISS imaging system will be identical to that on the Nokia Lumia lineup. It is expected to feature a 5.99-inch Quad HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, 6GB of RAM, 128GB storage and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. This could be a letdown since we will be seeing Snapdragon 855-powered phones next month.

Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+

Samsung Galaxy S-series turns ten this year and the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are expected to be its biggest design evolution yet. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are expected to come in multiple screen sizes including an entry-level model with a flat-screen this year. There are also rumors of a mid model with a 6.2-inch curved display and two more models with a 6.44-inch screen and optional support for 5G.

This design will allow for a higher screen-to-body ratio and there are also reports of Samsung adding reverse wireless charging this year. Other features include Snapdragon 855 SoC in the US and China and Exynos 9820 chipset in all other markets. These models are expected to come with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB storage. With the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, Samsung is also expected to integrate Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.

Huawei P30 and P30 Pro

After launching the P20 and P20 Pro at a separate event in March, Huawei is expected to return to MWC this year with the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones. The P30 series is expected to be an improvement over its predecessor by switching to a taller display design that drops the front-mounted fingerprint sensor in favor of an in-display fingerprint sensor. It is also expected to bring major changes in the camera department.

Evan Blass has confirmed that Huawei P30 will offer triple rear camera setup while the P30 Pro is expected to include four camera sensors and support 10x lossless zoom. The leaks claim that Huawei plans to use a 38-megapixel sensor but it is not clear how the four cameras will work. It is expected to feature a waterdrop notch design at the front and come with Kirin 980 chipset, 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.

Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition

Samsung will start selling foldable smartphones this year but Vivo will start selling smartphone will dual displays.

Sony Xperia XZ4

Sony could jump Samsung and others to become the first to launch the Snapdragon 855-powered smartphone. The Xperia XZ4 recently appeared on Antutu with a score of 3,95,000 and model number I8134. This indicates that the Xperia XZ4 will be the most powerful smartphone when it becomes official next month.

The leaked CAD renders show that it will feature an extra tall display design with 21:9 aspect ratio. It is expected to feature triple rear camera setup and include a headphone jack and dedicated shutter button for the camera.

OnePlus 7

OnePlus 7 and its 5G variant is another smartphone that could disrupt the market this year. The OnePlus 6T has already set a bar for mid-range premium smartphones and its next device will have to deliver on its promise of “Never Settle” attitude. The smartphone recently leaked in the form of an internal meeting attended by Pete Lau.

OnePlus 7 is confirmed to come with Snapdragon 855 but the company is set to launch another model with 5G modem support. The MsnTarGet.com OnePlus 5G smartphone is expected to support T-Mobile’s network in the US and EE in the UK. There is not much known beyond this but it could be the 5G smartphone most people will find affordable.

Xiaomi Mi 9 and Mi MIX 4

Xiaomi is expected to launch two new flagship smartphones – the Mi 9 and Mi MIX 4 – this year. It is not clear whether both the devices will arrive at the same time but the Mi 9 is likely to debut at MWC next month. Both the devices will be powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC and feature triple rear camera setup msntarget.com.

There are leaks of the Mi MIX 4 getting periscope style camera setup for improved zoom capability. Xiaomi has already begun testing the 5G version of Mi MIX 3 so one can expect that Mi MIX 4 will also support 5G at the time of launch.

When you’re a smartphone manufacturer preparing to introduce an all-new form factor to the marketplace, you certainly want to give the new handset a great name. A name that conveys something about the device that may seem unusual to people at first, especially those who are used to interacting with their mobile devices a certain way.

Along these lines, it seemed up until this point that Samsung was leaning toward calling its much-anticipated foldable phone something that has the word “Flex” in the name — say, Samsung Flex or Galaxy Flex. That’s based on reporting from The Wall Street Journal in recent days, and it certainly makes sense for conveying how the device works. Meanwhile, however, new potential branding for the bendy phone has also emerged.

More potential names have leaked for Samsung’s revolutionary foldable phone

As spotted by 91mobiles, Samsung has filed a trademark in the UK for a product called the Samsung Galaxy Fold, which presumably refers to its foldable phone. It was filed on November 27th under the so-called “Class 9” category, which includes only smartphones and tablets.

Another important point worth nothing: According to 91mobiles, the patent was filed on behalf of Samsung by London-based Fieldfisher LPP, which recently also applied for another trademark dubbed “Samsung Rize.” That one, too, was filed under the “Class 9” category, giving us one more tantalizing clue about what naming convention Samsung may ultimately decide to go with for its new phone.

The caveat, of course, is that neither of these might be under serious consideration — that the company may just be preserving options so it has the biggest selection of names to pick from. Still, though, when you’ve got a foldable phone and you want to somehow convey that in the name, it would seem that you’ve got a somewhat limited selection of words to choose from, right? “Fold” definitely works. To that end, we reported just a few days ago that there’s also some pretty significant overlap between three major phone makers all vying to bring foldable devices to market — and all of which are considering pretty similar naming options.

The one name that seems to be liked by LG, Huawei and Samsung as a good possibility for a foldable device is Flex, which makes sense. The WSJ reporting said that Samsung has considered Flex. According to LetsGoDigital, LG has filed several trademarks with the European Union Intellectual Property Office that show it’s considering Flex, among other names. And based on some IP documents reviewed by AndroidHeadlines, Huawei is also reportedly considering names like the Mate Flex, Mate Flexi for its foldable phone.

Expect to see more leaks in the coming weeks, especially as we get closer to the phone’s reveal when we’ll finally find out things like its name and other key details.

Chinese manufacturer Huawei launched its top of the line flagship model Mate 20 Pro in India yesterday. Packed by next-gen features, the smartphone will go against some of the top current flagships.

It is a long time rumour that Samsung is working on a foldable phone called the Galaxy X. The rumours now turn into a reality as Samsung reveals that its foldable phone is in works and will be coming soon. As many expected, Samsung didn’t launch the foldable phone but instead showed the panel of the phone which it calls Infinity Flex Display. The revelation happened at Samsung Developers Conference (SDC) 2018 keynote on November 7. As noted, the South Korean smartphone maker didn’t show the actual device. Instead, it just showed just the calls Infinity Flex Display which will be seen on the Samsung foldable phone when it goes official. The Infinity Flex Display panel of the foldable phone was shown as part of an engineering prototype at the SDC 2018 keynote. Besides the panel, Samsung didn’t reveal anything else about its upcoming foldable phone. The company didn’t reveal what it plans to call the foldable phone and if the phone will hit the Indian stores or not.

Samsung Foldable Phone Could Be Used as Phone and Tablet

Samsung also didn’t reveal when it plans to launch the phone. Rumours claim that the South Korean smartphone manufacturer could officially launch the first ever foldable phone at Mobile World Congress 2019 in February. The prototype of the Infinity Flex Display was revealed by Justin Denison, Samsung’s SVP of Mobile Product Marketing at SDC 2018.

The design of the panel goes in line with the rumours and leaks that we have seen so far. To design and develop the Infinity Flex Display for its foldable phone, Samsung is seemingly using a flexible OLED panel which the company says has a 45% thinner polariser. It looks like the Samsung foldable phone will come with an external display on the rear of the device which will allow users to use the phone just like a regular phone when folded. In addition, it is said that there will an internal display that will let users use the phone as a tablet. There will be a third display too.

Samsung could also be working towards utilising all the three displays at the same time with the aim to provide a continuous experience between smartphone and tablet with the help of a feature called multi-active window. This window will allow users to use all the three displays and run three apps simultaneously. Overall, going by the panel prototype shared by Samsung and taking into consideration the leaks and rumours, Samsung’s foldable phone could be used as a smartphone as well as a tablet.

Launch Timeline

In addition to revealing the Infinity Flex Display, Samsung executive also revealed that the panel would enter mass production in a “matter of months”, this could mean that the foldable phone or Galaxy X is nearing its launch. Rumours say that the South Korean smartphone manufacturer could launch the foldable phone at Mobile World Congress 2019.

He further noted that the company had to work on new kinds of materials from the ground up and take a distinct design approach. Many elements ranging from flexible screen panel, a flexible layer beneath that, a foldable backplane and more.

Samsung will introduce the new One UI to work along with its Infinity Flex Display to provide a different experienced compared the current breed of phones. Be it viewing content or multi-tasking; One UI intends to deliver a seamless transition between the compact form factor to unfolded one and vice versa.

You can run up to three apps simultaneously, and Samsung calls the feature as Multi-Active Window. Of course, that would require a lot of developers to work on their apps to support such features, and that’s why Samsung invited them to the SDC.

Even Google is working closely with Samsung on the Infinity Flex Display to ensure that Android platform is ready to support it. Google is calling them Foldables and is working to enhance the Android and guide its developers to start using the existing features with as less effort as possible.

LG already has the flexible OLED displays in its kitty, and it won’t be surprising if the company follows Samsung’s suite. Expect more companies to step in and further the foldable smartphone concept to a viable form factor.

Samsung didn’t reveal details about the pricing or the release timeline of the foldable smartphone. However, the company did confirm its capability to start its production in a matter of months.

Samsung, in an attempt to challenge iPhone maker Apple and other Chinese vendors, is preparing at least three types of smartphones. The Korean giant is reportedly working on a foldable smartphone, a 5G-enabled smartphone and cheaper version of its flagship model for 2019.

Samsung Galaxy S10 with 5G support

Samsung is working with US-based Verizon to introduce the world’s first 5G smartphone. The company is working on Galaxy S10, codenamed “Beyond” expected to launch at Mobile World Congress next year. The smartphone is expected to come in three variants – a cheaper version without curved display, a mid-range version with dual curved edge display and in-display fingerprint sensor and a third premium model with support for Verizon’s 5G mobile network.

According to Bloomberg, Samsung is aiming to secure support from the biggest US carrier as it aims to popularize 5G network next year. With 5G, consumers will be able to experience data transfer speed that is multiple times faster than existing 4G mobile network. Samsung has reportedly embedded a fingerprint sensor under the display of Galaxy S10 and has overcome the challenge of mass-producing such a device.

A cheaper Galaxy S10 is on the cards

With Galaxy S10, Samsung is also said to be preparing to challenge the business model of its Chinese rivals. The Korean company is said to be planning a cheaper version of its flagship model that could challenge flagships from Huawei and Oppo. The model could replace Samsung’s existing Galaxy A lineup altogether as it hopes to win consumers with the pull of Galaxy S branding.

The cheaper version of the Galaxy S10 will lack the dual-curved edge display design that was first seen on the Galaxy Note Edge in 2014. This particular model is also tipped to miss out on in-display fingerprint sensor in order to cut down on costs. Samsung is planning to ship all the three Galaxy S10 models with Android 9 Pie out of the box next year.

“We’re continually evolving our smartphone portfolio to provide our customers with new and exciting innovations and experiences. At this time, we don’t have anything to share about future devices. Please stay tuned,” Samsung told Bloomberg in a statement.

Samsung’s foldable phone codenamed Winner

Samsung has already confirmed its plans to share more information about its foldable smartphone codenamed ‘Winner’ at its developer conference next month. Bloomberg reports that Samsung is debating between two prototypes ahead of final release: one that is horizontally longer and the other vertically longer when unfolded. Both the models open from side and side and the landscape model has reportedly fallen out of favor.

This bendable display phone might not feature a fingerprint sensor and is expected to include an extra four-inch screen on the outside for basic features like browsing mails and messages, without having to flip it open. The prototype design could be similar to Motorola Razr phone with the screen opening with a snap. The report claims that the display is coated with a film that “feels like ones used in photography instead of glass.”

The hinge for this folding phone has already passed internal tests of folding more than 2,00,000 times but there are still questions related to its yield rate in mass production. The company is struggling to figure out technical problems that may arise during mass production including possibility of this foldable display cracking into dried paper. The report mentions that the prototype measures more than 200 grams and Samsung might reduce the battery size in order to make it lighter.

Apart from engineering difficulties, Samsung is also addressing software issues by closely working with Google. Both the companies are said to be developing a special version of the Android operating system for the foldable smartphone. The interface of the final software is said to depend largely on which of the two design is chosen for final product.

Samsung is not expected to mass produce and offer retail model until second quarter of next year. However, the pressure is on the Korean giant to demonstrate feasibility of a foldable smartphone as its subsidiary aims to supply flexible displays to Apple and Chinese vendors next.
