Samsung's Foldable Smartphone Will Be a Tablet That Can Be Folded Into a Phone Confirms CEO DJ Koh

The rumor mill keeps churning so rapidly about Samsung's much-hyped, much-delayed foldable phone that it's starting to look like Galaxy F (for fast) may be the flawless name for this quick generator of interest among tech bloggers.

At a recent launch event, Samsung's CEO for the mobile division DJ Koh said in an interview to CNET that their bendable smartphone won't offer a gimmicky feature and would rather make a point for itself in the market. This week, during the unveiling of their 18-camera phone, the Galaxy A9,000-mid-ranger, Samsung's DJ Koh talked about foldable things again.

Samsung has been working on foldable phones for years now, and it looks like we're finally going to get a finished product in the next few months.

He said that it won't be a "gimmick product", that it will be around longer than six months, it'll ship globally, and is definitely not another taco phone. In fact, his comments provide little information about the mysterious foldable phone.

It's been no secret that Samsung desperately wants to provide the cardinal foldable-display smartphone, but Koh assured CNET that, "if the user experience is not up to my standard, I don't want to deliver those kinds of products". As we reported a few days ago, Samsung post-IFA 2018 said there won't be a Galaxy F announcement at the developers' conference but that it may reveal some details about the phone in November, like specs. What he seems to be indicating that a foldable phone that will open and close like a book. He is also positive that we do need foldable phones.

Focusing and moving forward towards the "larger screen" trend in the smartphone market, the report claimed that a foldable phone would let screen sizes extend beyond 6.5 inches.
