Samsung teases mythical smartphone with foldable display

Thanks to SamMobile, who spotted a particular listing in the app, it's believed that Samsung is to launch an Android Pie Beta Program this week, likely for owners of newer Galaxy devices. The world has been on the edge of its seat waiting for Samsung or Huawei to unveal the world's first foldable smartphone-tablet, but Royole has beaten to them to it by unveiling its own FlexPai. Naturally, there has been no hint of a price tag, but you can guarantee that buying the foldable phone will not be something that your wallet will thank you for. Royole Corporation, a California-based start-up, last week unveiled FlexPai, a 7.8-inch foldable device with as many as three screens. It is also the first device to pack in the yet-to-be-launched Snapdragon 850. The consumer model is also available for the Chinese market now with order fulfillment from late December.

Now it looks like Samsung is hinting that it will reveal the new bendable phone at its developer conference which kicks off this Wednesday November 7. Normally, Samsung holds Beta Programs in South Korea, the United States, and the UK at the very least. The report further claims that the Korean company will mass produce an approximate 1000,000 units of the flexible display, starting this month.

OnePlus 6T ‘Thunder Purple’ press renders appear online ahead of launch
In China, OnePlus released a new color for the OnePlus 6T this week, Thunder Purple , and we're officially jealous. The OnePlus 6T was launched a week ago, and the phone is set to go on sale in Malaysia in just a few more days.

The Samsung Foldable Smartphone is expected to be made official at the Samsung Developer Conference this week, although the handset is not expected to go on sale until next year. "If they become established well enough to take a place in flagship product line-ups like the S-series and Note-series, then foldables might just help turn around the company's underperforming mobile business", said Greg Roh, an analyst at HMC Investment & Securities.
