Samsung officially teases folding smartphone on Facebook

Prepare yourself for a foldable smartphone, Samsung fans.

Earlier today, Samsung teased a photo with the company's logo folded on their Facebook page which seems to point to the ever talked about foldable phone that they have been working on for awhile now.

Lee Kyeong-tae, Samsung vice president for mobile communication, said last week the phone's user interface will be unveiled at an annual conference for app developers which will take place in San Francisco on Wednesday.

Unofficially, it's believed that Samsung will show off a foldable device at its Developer Conference later this week with a 7.3-inch OLED display primary display on the inside with a 4.6-inch OLED display on the exterior.

The foldable phone when unfolded turns into a 7.8-inch tablet.

The Samsung Foldable Smartphone is expected to be made official at the Samsung Developer Conference this week, although the handset is not expected to go on sale until next year. For the moment at least, there are no details on which processor, how much RAM, how many cameras, or what size battery this foldable phone might have. However, there are reports that Huawei is aiming to beat Samsung here by delivering its foldable phone first.

Expectations that the phone itself will be on display are, however, low.

We previously heard a rumour that Samsung's foldable phone could be called the Galaxy F. Now, a recent trademark filing suggests that the handset will be launched as Samsung Infinity Flex. Folding an OLED display puts it under stress and will eventually damage it. The phone will reportedly come with 512GB of internal storage, dual-SIM capability, and a silver colour option.

Apart from the teaser image, Samsung hasn't officially disclosed anything.

The South Korean tech giant is among a handful of firms which have flagged that foldable phones will be coming to market soon. The paper specifically mentions mobile gaming as a key focus.
