The company has even said it was working on this device multiple times. In April 2017, Samsung Display’s principal engineer, Kim Tae-woong said the company was focusing on bezel-free displays first and would then pivot to bendable displays. The company has now introduced multiple phones with minimal bezels, albeit not completely bezel-free, so it seems the team could be refocusing on something new. At the time, Samsung said it would likely release a bendable phone in 2019, which, again, aligns with the Journal’s reporting.
Since that time, other companies like ZTE have introduced folding phones. ZTE’s Axon M was released in the US through AT&T, and it features two, non-flexible displays. The idea was that users could watch full-screen movies or easily multitask. Samsung’s phone might not be any more ideal for multitasking or gaming, but it would at least look cool and be super unique.
Technob’s final verdict:
We the technobs team can’t wait to behold the wonderful phone to be released by samsung in 2019. It will be reviewed here on technobs, so you have to stay in touch.
