With the launch of FlexPai, the smartphone world embraced flexible body design. And later, with the announcement of Samsung’s foldable smartphone, we saw the first device of its kind from a major OEM. While Samsung did showcase the device slightly, it was still a pretty limited view. However, new renders of the supposedly Galaxy F device have popped up. And they seem to give a better look at a pretty interesting hinge and the dual display design.
Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone renders
Thanks to LetsGoDigital, we now have a new 3D render based on patent drawings from the company. It basically shows what the final device might look. Also, unlike what many might presume, these are not based on CAD design and could be the final device.
According to the renders, the phone will have a 4.6-inch display with a resolution of 840 × 1960 pixels on the front. When you open the device, you’ll get a 7.3-inch flexible AMOLED display with QXGA + resolution (1536 × 2152 pixels).
Apart from the renders, Samsung has also said that it will be working closely with Google to redesign and come up with a new UI. The new UI is said to be specifically for foldable smartphones. It will be designed to make the process of switching from the smartphone form factor to tablet form easier and intuitive.
Samsung Galaxy F price and availability
As of now, there is no date as to when the device will be launched. However, Samsung is expected to give another demo at MWC 2019 in February. Also, the rumor mill suggests that the device might start shipping in March. As for the price, it won’t be cheap. Leaks suggest that the device could be priced at $1770 (~Rs. 1,27,500).
