Samsung hopes to launch foldable phone in 2018

14 September 2017

We first started seeing folding display prototypes from Samsung in 2013.

And on Tuesday, just hours before Apple's Tim Cook took to the stage, Samsung Electronics president of mobile business, Koh Ding-jin, said in an interview with Associated Press: "As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year".

The Note 8 is a successor to Samsung's ill-fated Note 7, which was recalled twice and discontinued after it spontaneously overheated or caught fire.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features a 6.3-inch Infinity display, IP68 certification, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB and 256 GB of internal storage, dial 12-megapixel camera, and Snapdragon 835. At the moment, he believes that there are several hurdles it has to overcome, leaving room to push back the release if those problems are not solved, Bloomberg reported. For years on end, they've said it is coming soon but it might finally happen in 2018 on the Galaxy Note 9.

The Series 3 Apple Watch with LTE connectivity still needs an iPhone
The internet has gone wild with updates on Apple's event like it does every time the tech giant has to announce something new. Pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 3 will start on 15 September with shipping scheduled for the week after, 22 September.

The Galaxy Note 8 can survive at a depth of up to 1.5 metres for 30 minutes. The phone will come in two colours - black and orchid grey, and expects to launch in Australia on September 22. Details surrounding the foldable display from Samsung are still light.

Subsidiary Harman, the auto-systems maker Samsung acquired earlier this year, will allow consumers to complete tasks using voice commands, via the Bixby virtual assistant.

A little-known Chinese startup called Moxi said in May 2016 it would launch wraparound black-and-white phones made of graphene by the end the year.

This is the first time Samsung has set a date for the release of its mobile device.

UN Security Council approves new North Korea sanctions
The North Korean government does not provide foreign media with a contact point in Pyongyang for comment by email, fax or phone. The US official said the ban on textile exports would deprive North Korea of some $726 million in annual revenue.

And understandably so. After all, the much-hyped iPhone X can be seen as a confirmation of Samsung's own vision, with features including a large, edge-to-edge OLED screen (supplied by Samsung itself) and facial recognition.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus also has a higher battery capacity with 3,500mAh battery, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a 3,300mAh batter.

We can say that things don't look that great for Samsung Galaxy A3 or for other smartphones that are in the same situation.
