Samsung to release annual foldable line-up
The Samsung Galaxy F (or whatever the foldable device’s name ends up being confirmed as) hasn’t even been released to the market yet, and apparently there are already plans to release a new line-up on an annual basis. This is according to a report from the Yonhap News Agency, which states:
Samsung plans to release Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series, along with a foldable lineup every year in selective markets, the tech company said.
There has been strong media interest in the new Samsung device; there is no doubt about that. It could be argued that the smartphone market has become somewhat stale over recent years, and even Apple’s decision to obscure future sales figures seems to point to market saturation. It’s the perfect time for the smartphone world to be revitalized, and it appears Samsung is one company that believes foldable phones could be part of the answer.
Leaks abound about the device’s details, including its rather steep price. It has been reported that the foldable smartphone will hit the consumer market in the first half of 2019 (possibly March), with one million units being prepared for shipment. That figure could seem either optimistic or pessimistic, depending on just how much the average smartphone user wants to get their hands on a foldable smartphone/tablet hybrid.
