The South Korea-based company released a teaser of a phone with bendable and foldable display technology.

. This week, during the unveiling of their 18-camera phone, the Galaxy A9,000-mid-ranger, Samsung's DJ Koh talked about foldable things again.

Thus, the company is in a controlled rush state as they hint at the possibility of the phone being launched next month at the Samsung Developer Conference on November 7-8. Koh also said that foldable smartphone would not be gimmick product to disappear after six to nine months after its delivered and also mentioned that the device will be made globally available, unlike the previous Galaxy Round that was limited only to Korea.

"When we deliver a foldable phone, it has to be really meaningful to our customer", Koh said in an interview at the sidelines of the Samsung Galaxy A9 launch in Malaysia. He didn't confirm any specifics about the display, but he reiterated that Samsung very much feels like it needs to have a foldable phone of some kind out there.

Since then, in a CNET interview, Koh underlined the awesome evolution that innovation has undergone: the phone they hope to launch soon, maybe called the Galaxy F, will unfold into a tablet. "I'm positive that we do need a foldable phone". Samsung sees hope in the niche device though since Koh is also quoted as saying that, "possibly when we start selling the foldable phone, it may be a niche market, but definitely, it will expand".

In fact, he claims that the Galaxy F will be of utmost practicality with the ability to be used as a tablet and then folded into a phone. With such an approach the Samsung foldable smartphone will be able to deliver on a screen size larger than 6.5-inches.
