Samsung wants to launch a foldable smartphone in 2018

South Korean smartphone giant Samsung Electronics is planning to launch a foldable smartphone next year under its Galaxy Note lineup, said the company.

While the foldable Galaxy Note could be a possibility, there are also a few obstacles that the company will have to face as pointed out by the President in his comment about the upcoming smartphone.

'When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product'. It carries 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage and expandable up to 256 GB that can be inserted via micro SD card. "We are currently addressing some technological hurdles to commercialize such a device", Korea Herald quoted Koh as saying.

The announcement came some 10 years after the company's late co-founder, Steve Jobs, introduced the first iPhone and with it set the stage for mobile computing. It also does not change the operating system which stays the same at Android Nougat 7.1.1. Because of the larger display design, this phone will be available without the bezels on both sides and panel home button. Koh said market response to the Note 8 beat expectations, even though was more expensive than past models. Although the final release will not be until Sept. 21, some of the devices are already on their way to their respective owners, 9to5Google reports. It's the most expensive smartphone Samsung has released so far. But it would have to toil much more than that to bring out a truly foldable phone. DJ Koh did not reveal if any existing Galaxy series will get the phone or an entirely new branch will be created.

Aside from Samsung, Lenovo has reportedly produced prototype smartphones in 2016 that can bend around the user's wrist. We still don't know if this is two screens with a hinge in the middle.

The latest launched Note 8 is believed to be the successor of Note 7, according to the officials.
