Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) tipped to cost Rs 39,000 in India

Koh added that the company was "focusing on developing innovations that will be genuinely accepted and liked by consumers" for the foldable phones.

Samsung has always been rumoured to be working on a foldable phone. This is because as the device is foldable, the same camera can be used to click photos or selfies by just turning the phone around.

Keen to make its foldable smartphone the next big thing, Samsung Electronics Co will depart from its usual policy of keeping product plans highly secret and provide some details of the phone's key features for app developers this week. Of course, we don't know how it's going to look and how it's going to operate exactly, but we have a couple of solid leads. However, we're excited to see what the company will have to offer.

The FlexPai uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series SoC, which brings impressive and industry-leading AI to the device. The phone is rumoured to sport a 7.3-inches primary display and a 4.6-inches secondary display. It said it will start filling orders from late December, although little is known about the firm's projected sales. We don't have a confirmed date yet but many are speculating it to launch on November 7 at the Samsung Developers Conference 2018 which is to be held in San Francisco.

Apart from Samsung, LG, Xiaomi and Huawei are also reportedly working on foldable phones.

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.

"Simply making a foldable screen is just not enough".
