  • Samsung Moves To Mid-Range Phones For Mobile Growth

He added that that development of the device has "nearly concluded", although warned that the process is "complicated". DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications, Samsung Electronics Co. said that his company was going to build more mid-range price phones in order to appeal to the millennials. However no firm release window has ever been given for the device, and even if Samsung does show it off in November there is no suggestion that the debut will be closely followed by a public release of a device that will certainly have tongues wagging.

Unlike the traditional flip phones that require a hinge, Samsung is reportedly making a screen that bends.

On November 7, Samsung's Developer Conference will kick off and the company will further show off its Bixby-powered speaker called Galaxy Home. Is this the Galaxy F, Samsung's first foldable display smartphone that we've been hearing about for quite some time now? Koh didn't share the technical details of how the device worked but shared how Samsung plans to differentiate the experience from a tablet once it is unfolded.

With standard, single-screen smartphone technology coming to a plateau with end-to-end screens, and notch or notchless designs, it would make sense for the Korean manufacturer to introduce a new kind of smartphones for consumers to fawn over.

A 10-minute break will be allowed between the second and third sets of women's singles matches if either player requests one. In the first round, she faced Swiss veteran Patty Schnyder, the oldest qualifier in Grand Slam history.

Samsung was rumored to launch its first-ever foldable for a couple of years, but Samsung kept delaying the phone's arrival. When folded, the device will also have a smaller visible front display, with cameras on the back. Samsung understands that if the device just functions like any other tablet on the market when it's unfolded, users will not develop a strong reason to purchase it.

It could lead to a handset that can easily transform into a tablet - simply by unfolding it.

Samsung wouldn't be the first company to release a folding phone.
