Last week, Samsung finally showed its flexible smartphone to the world. Since then, a lot of details have become known about the screen quality. Today, the target price that Samsung is aiming for was also announced: $1,770.
Samsung finally showed the first version of its flexible smartphone last week after a long teasing session. Despite the fact that the device could be seen on stage for a while, very little is known about the specifications. Google soon followed with the message that Android will get support for foldable screens.
The unit has a 4.6-inch screen (840 x 1960 pixels) on the outside and a 7.2-inch screen (1,536 x 2,152 pixels) on the inside that is flexible. Both screens have a pixel density of 420 dpi. For the time being, the device is called Samsung Galaxy F.

The demo of the prototype still looks pretty angular and unwieldy, but Samsung emphasized that it deliberately wants to mislead everyone into presenting the final design later on. To keep secrets, the stage was also darkened. It might have been necessary to show the screen as well, because the flexible panel didn’t seem to be very bright.
According to the Korean Yonhap News Agency, the Samsung Galaxy F will be officially announced in March with its final design. The target price that Samsung is aiming for would be around $1,770. The high price is possibly due to the limited availability of the Galaxy F.
Yonhap also has news about the Samsung Galaxy S10. According to the news agency, Samsung is preparing a global announcement for the end of February at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona. A month later, the Galaxy F would be announced in its final design, along with a 5G version of the Galaxy S10.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
