The company plans to produce more than 100,000 units this month. Although the phone won’t go on sale before next year. Price details to be precise aren’t available yet. But, sources have told that it’s going to be priced around $1500, which does seem to be on the expensive side. Samsung definitely plans to target niche markets with the launch of this foldable phone. The paper specifically mentions mobile gaming as a key focus. Though Samsung isn’t alone working on a foldable smartphone.
Just last week, little-known Chinese startup Royale had announced the ‘world’s first commercial foldable smartphone’, dubbed the FlexPai. It runs on Qualcomm’s yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 8150 chipset and is expected to ship in December.
