Samsung Mobile has uploaded an image of a folding Samsung logo to its official Facebook page hinting at some possible news this week about the much awaited foldable smartphone. This could be an indication of Samsung announcing new details about the foldable Galaxy, or Galaxy X as we know it, at the upcoming Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco. Details such as a new UI that Samsung has exclusively developed for the foldable Galaxy are expected to be revealed at this event.

Foldable smartphones are the 'in thing' these days with most OEMs hopping onto the folding display bandwagon. Samsung has been teasing the foldable smartphone concept for quite sometime now and the latest tease comes in the form of a folding Samsung logo posted by Samsung Mobile on its official Facebook page. The image seems to have generated good interest in fans gauging by the number of comments and likes on the post.

This is not the first such hint from Samsung, though. A few weeks ago, Samsung posted a small animation on Twitter hinting at information about a possible foldable phone at the Samsung Developer Conference slated to start tomorrow in San Francisco. Apparently, Samsung has told Korean media outlets that it plans to unveil the phone's unique UI at the event. There is a chance that Samsung could use the event to show off a working prototype of the device as well. Samsung's foldable Galaxy X was supposed to have a 2019 unveiling but sensing the urgency with which many Chinese OEMs want to be the first to the finish line, the South Korean behemoth has decided to shift the launch date to late 2018, at least in a few markets.

That said, little known startup Royole has already announced the 'world's first foldable screen phone' called the FlexPai. The FlexPai is said to sport Qualcomm's yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8150 SoC and is expected to ship in December this year with developer units already underway. 

We will keep you posted on Samsung's plans for its foldable smartphone so stay tuned.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
