However the good news is that it does not appear we will have to wait too long for it. A report from The Korea Herald has revealed that Samsung’s smartphone with a foldable display will come in 2018, or at least that’s the plan according to the company’s CEO, Koh Dong-jin. According to Koh, the company does have plans for such a device and are aiming to launch it in 2018, assuming that it is ready by then.
Koh claims that there are some technological hurdles in creating such a device, but once that’s overcome they will be making such a device part of their roadmap. “We have a plan to adopt a foldable display in our roadmap. We will launch a foldable device when we are fully ready, and we are aiming to do so next year.”
The idea of a smartphone with a foldable display is a rather interesting one, and could lead to interesting uses, but whether or not such a device is a novelty, like glasses-free 3D smartphones, or if it could end up a hit like the curved displays on the recently launched Galaxy Note 8 remains to be seen.
