Samsung teases mythical smartphone with foldable display

But the more important part here is that Samsung has given us further confirmation that it will show off how its foldable device will shape the company's future. Samsung Mobile updated its profile photo on Facebook to a Samsung logo folded over.

While Samsung is holding a developer conference in November where its foldable phone could possibly be unveiled.

The goal is garnering critical feedback as new technologies will require developers to tweak apps to make sure they run smoothly when the phone folds out into tablet form. According to a recent Bloomberg report, design of the foldable phone, codenamed victor, hasn't been yet finalised. We neither have a confirmed name of the phone but a report from GizmoChina reveals that it may be called the Galaxy F. The letter F could probably mean foldable.

The last rumor from the Wall Street Journal claimed Samsung's foldable display phone would be out early next year, but remember the rumor mill has been saying that for years.

It probably doesn't hurt either that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos also owns the Washington Post . Amazon has said that economic incentives will be an important factor in its decision.

Despite a folding phone from Samsung being rumored every year since 2013-including a Samsung-produced concept video in 2014- it seems like foldable phones are finally ready to become a reality.

We previously heard a rumour that Samsung's foldable phone could be called the Galaxy F. Now, a recent trademark filing suggests that the handset will be launched as Samsung Infinity Flex.

Samsung's radically designed foldable smartphone is closer to launch, but it could be priced upwards of $1500 (or approx 1,09,432). Folding an OLED display puts it under stress and will eventually damage it. The device is rumoured to come with a 7-inch foldable display that folds in half. The paper specifically mentions mobile gaming as a key focus.
