Samsung is already working with its next generation flagship smartphones, including the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy F foldable handset, which will be released in the first half of next year. The folding phone can turn out to be the most interesting smartphone Samsung ever made, especially considering last week's report Bloomberg who revealed more details about the handset previously unknown. But while these details can not be confirmed right now, we have an indication of what Samsung can call on the phone's screen.
Bloomberg explained that Samsung can showcase the collapsible concept at Samsung's Developer Conference next month, although it's going to be a concept image instead of a picture of the actual phone.
The report also showed that Samsung engineers have worked with two different prototypes that open from side to side, with one that lends the screen vertically and horizontally. On the outside there is a 4 inch screen that appears when the phone is folded. Bloomberg also said that Samsung has been working closely with Google to develop an Android version for folding phones, which is good news.
At the same time, Samsung filed a trademark at KIPO on October 26 for "Samsung Infinity-V" a trademark that can be used with smartphones and smartphone displays, according to Let's Go Digital .
Samsung drove "Infinity Display" last year when it launched the Galaxy S8. All flagships that came packaged Infinity Displays by their own. These are curved edge-to-edge monitors with small fittings on the top and bottom. The same Bloomberg reports that the Galaxy S10 would have a screen with even smaller bezels.
Although it is unclear which device Infinity-V will be used for, Galaxy F is the first to come to mind. This is because a folding phone will form a "V" when folded and unfolded. Not to mention that a Samsung teaser for its SDC18 developer conference had a "V" morphing into an "I" that seemed to be a teaser for collapsible devices. Then again, Samsung may have something else scheduled for "V" and the Galaxy S10 may end up rocking an Infinity-V display next year.
