LG set to debut foldable smartphone in January at CES 2019

  • Samsung DEx

The main screen on the inside will measure 7.3 inches, according to the report.

In terms of innovation, and the changing of the guard, so to speak, Samsung seems to be moving away from the features that Galaxy owners have been using for over a half decade. The report states that the first Galaxy F device will sport 512GB of storage, and will be a high-end device.

Samsung Android Go smartphones had a solid debut at Mobile World Congress back in February, as the likes of Nokia and ZTE showed off low-end devices. U.S. pricing hasn't yet been confirmed, but this phone sells for about $90 in other markets. The Iris Scanner was Samsung's solution to contact-less biometric verification and after Apple's FaceID, it has been a mainstay on the S series phones as well. 2018 has become the year when smartphone makers focused on increasing display size without increasing the overall size of their phones, and we've gotten some nifty new "all-screen" designs as a result. It is rumoured that the foldable device might be announced.

The market is paying attention to foldable phones and 5G smartphones as a wild card to recover Samsung Electronics' poor performance. The risk of screen damage from drops would also be lower, given that the phone would not have a screen on the outside when folded. The foldable phone we saw earlier this week, which is already available for preorder, has a folding screen on the outside. The 2019 version also looks like it will retain a familiar format with two 4.2-inch displays.

Protests rage in Pakistan after woman acquitted of blasphemy
Islamists in Pakistan's largest city of Karachi and in the north-western city of Peshawar were also gathering for the protests . Bibi did not appear in the courtroom and her whereabouts were a closely held secret for fear of attacks on her and her family.

Samsung is working hard on its Galaxy S10 flagship as the device is said to bring the best that current technology has to offer in order to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy line.

"If you think about how Samsung can differentiate itself and compete in this market, it's with hardware", said Cliff Maldonado, an analyst at BayStreet Research in San Francisco.

On the other hand, Samsung is also trying to push it to launch in the first quarter of 2019 but Huawei might shift plans to later next year.
