After launching the Cloud Silver color variant for the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung is all set to launch yet another color variant for its flagship smartphone - Pure White. We neither have a confirmed name of the phone but a report from GizmoChina reveals that it may be called the Galaxy F. The letter F could probably mean foldable.

As with most good teasers, this one doesn't really give away anything about the phone.

Samsung Mobile on Sunday changed its Facebook profile photo to an image of the Samsung logo folded in half.

Tech innovator and manufacturer Royole has released the world's first commercial foldable smartphone.

Al-Waleed claimed to be "on excellent terms with the crown prince, the king and Saudi Arabia". "And I have faith in that". In an interview with CNN , the sons also said they hoped he did not suffer when he was killed.

Both, however, have been pipped to the post by Royole, a Chinese display making start-up, which last week unveiled a foldable phone with a 7.8 inch screen, priced from around US$1,300. There's a clear chance Samsung could also tease its foldable phone at the event to gauge the interest of the developer community.

The device comes in three different configurations 6GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, and 8GB+512GB RAM/ROM with internal storage expandable up to 256GB with a MicroSD card.

Samsung patented foldable screen technology in 2015 that would allow for a flexible OLED display with a folding mechanism under the display. The company could first unveil the phone in its homeland followed by other countries.

Samsung needs to get the foldable phone right - hoping it will reverse steep declines in profit for its mobile division and restore some of the premium cachet its brand has lost to Apple Inc. However, there are reports that Huawei is aiming to beat Samsung here by delivering its foldable phone first. This shows a possibility that the phone will be made available on global markets.
