It’s been a long wait for Samsung fans when it comes to the company’s foldable phone. Samsung has been teasing the device – rumored to be called Galaxy Fold – for years, and while it finally gave us a look at the foldable display in action, the device’s design remains a mystery. The Galaxy Fold’s release date remains unknown as well, but the company has finally started developing firmware for the device worldwide.

Development on firmware for the US has been going on since before Samsung unveiled the foldable display at its developer conference. Now, firmware development has been started for other regions right as we enter the new year. The Galaxy Fold will take advantage of One UI’s focus on easier one-handed usage, and Samsung is also working alongside Google to bring UI elements from its foldable phone to stock Android. Details on specifications are sparse at the moment, but the device will have a 7.3-inch main OLED display and a 4.6-inch external display.

The Galaxy Fold will be released worldwide, but availability will be limited, with Samsung looking at producing only one million units for the initial run.┬áThe device will be available in at least black and silver color options, along with a 512GB storage option. And, of course, it’s going to cost a fortune, with some reports suggesting a price tag as high as $2,500.
