It took 5 years for Samsung to make their 2013 vision of a folding cell phone genuine, and it is close to sure that Samsung will dispatch their folding Samsung Galaxy F on the twentieth February.
It is almost sure anyway that Samsung is as of now working away at what is straightaway, and that could in all likelihood be a rolling, stretchable cell phone, in the event that we read between the lines of a blog entry by Hark-sang Kim is Samsung’s Senior Vice President and Head of Visual R&D Team.
In the post he discusses the journey to the dispatch of their folding cell phone, and furthermore gave a brief nod to the future, saying:
Despite current trends, we are still living in a world where the size of the smartphone display can only be as large as the device itself. At Samsung, we began to ask ourselves how we can overcome this limitation and expand the possibilities of what users can accomplish on the go.
The Shape of Things to Come
Cell phone displays can’t get any bigger without compromising portability – this was the orthodoxy for a long time.
Instead of accepting the status quo, resolving the contradiction between screen size and portability and developing a new form factor became the central focus of our innovation efforts.
Preparing for the New Era
We expect to see a sea change in the smartphone form factor in the coming years. From rollable and stretchable devices to the devices that can fold in multiple ways are no longer beyond the realms of reality. Samsung is ready to usher in this future and create meaningful experiences for consumers that help them do more of what they love.
Cell phone development is at the cusp of the next major transformation. The entry of the Infinity Flex Display is only the start. We will keep pushing the limits of possibility and shape the future as it unfolds.
