The First Foldable Smartphone is Here & It Isn't Samsung

The only thing we can really glean from the image is that the fold is a rather generous curve, so that may be an indication of the finished product's aesthetic.

Samsung needs to get the foldable phone right - hoping it will reverse steep declines in profit for its mobile division and restore some of the premium cachet its brand has lost to Apple Inc. The phone has been codenamed as Valley and victor also. It looks like a real clunker, but these first-generation devices are usually the first step toward a viable screen device. The secondary display will measure 4.58-inches, claims the report and Samsung is planning to market the device to feature a 7.3-inch and 4.6-inch displays, respectively. Samsung also informed that the company had been working on this foldable smartphone for over four years. However, there are reports that Huawei is aiming to beat Samsung here by delivering its foldable phone first.

The company, however, has already lost the race for the world's first commercial foldable phone.




The company did not stop there, it introduced single-curved screen based Galaxy Note Edge in 2014 and this was followed by a dual-curved display was introduced in the Galaxy S6 Edge in 2015 and since then, it has been the norm for the Samsung flagship phones till date. So, a lot of people are pretty vocal about not caring for a foldable phone. Apart from the foldable display itself, the challenge has been in accommodating the battery, camera module and other internal hardware.

The FlexPai uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series SoC, which brings impressive and industry-leading AI to the device.
