Samsung’s foldable device is coming to market soon, but although there have been plenty of leaks and even official information about the device, not a lot is known about what it looks like. If new renders based on all the available information to date are accurate, it is poised to be a fascinating entry into the smartphone market.

We all know that Samsung is bringing a foldable smartphone to market — Samsung officials themselves have confirmed this on more than one occasion, while prototypes have already been shown to some lucky people. We know that it will be made using Samsung’s foldable display technology that utilizes a special plastic substrate that will allow it to fold, if not completely flat, but at least into a much more compact form. Now Dutch site NieuweMobiel has partnered with designer Jonas Dähnert to bring the eagerly anticipated device to life.

As you can see from the rendered images, the Galaxy ‘X’ or 'F' (or whatever it ends up being called) is set to be quite stunning. You will be able to use it completely unfolded, or somewhere in between. The dual lens camera, for example, is expected to be able to function even when folded. Previously leaked patents show how the device’s hinge will allow it to remain sturdy when open, but at the same time will enable the device to collapse into a much more compact design.

Although few details have leaked about the specifications of the foldable Galaxy device, it could be one of the first to ship with Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon 855. This will help to justify what is expected to be a sky-high price for Samsung’s latest flagship, which could be as high as US$1,500. If it is anything like the renders pictured here, that is probably fair enough for what will be a limited run smartphone, at least in its first incarnation.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
