The company will release its 1st flexible smartphone only by 2019.
Recently it became known that this year we will not see folding smartphone from Samsung.
The chief designer of Samsung Display Kim Tae-Woon (Kim Tae-woong) announced that frameless, sold well, and there is no need to rush into technology ready for commercial launch soon in 2019. Such a statement destroys all idea that the alleged Galaxy X could debut at IFA in September this year.
Korean analysts have confirmed that frameless displays profitable for Samsung, and the company does not need to rush products that are not yet ready. According to Chung Won-Seok (Chung Won-seok), Samsung Display, has a 20% operating profit only from edge-to-edge OLED screens. He said:
When the demand for mobile phones without buttons decline, Samsung will introduce a folding display as his trump card.
Kim also told Korean media that the display is not completely ready, and there are some technical problems that need to be addressed. In two years we will see the first foldable Samsung.
