Samsung’s foldable smartphone is no longer a myth. The company has officially acknowledged its development on multiple occasions. Going one step further, Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh has said the much-awaited foldable smartphone, believed to be called the Galaxy F, will be revealed this year itself, probably at the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) in November.

Despite all the hype and launch confirmation, we still don’t know what the Galaxy F will look like. Samsung would, unsurprisingly, like to keep that information under wraps until the official unveiling, but a new ET News report from Korea has come out with interesting details about the Galaxy F design and form factor which may very well turn out to be true.

Confirms previous reports about Samsung’s foldable smartphone

To begin with, the details in the new report match with what was reported earlier this year. Samsung’s foldable smartphone will sport a book-like form factor with a vertically foldable display on the inside. Since such an in-folding design hides the screen entirely when folded, Samsung will also be adding a display on the outside which will enable users to operate phone normally even when folded. The latest report confirms these previously reported details and also offers information of possible screen sizes.

According to the new report, the alleged Galaxy F will feature a foldable 7.3-inch OLED display (made by Samsung Display) on the inside with a 1.5R curvature. The external display will reportedly be 4.6 inches and of flexible OLED variety, allowing the device to be used as a regular smartphone when the device is folded. The design, which matches with what DJ Koh was hinting at, offers the convenience of using the larger display only when it is needed and not necessarily for every task

The report pegs the production of foldable displays between 100,000 and 120,000 units a month. However, Samsung Display will place part orders for 150,000 to 180,000 units per month due to yield issues. The report also reiterates Samsung is developing the foldable smartphone under the project name Winner.
