Foldable phones might be the big next thing, but will you pay more ?
Samsung first introduced a portable folding device that should be produced for customers. This isn’t just a product that is in an idea phase.
Since the “launch” of the device that will begin to be sold in 2019. There is a lot of talk about its Android support, but in my opinion it is very important to talk about other points for better and worse of course.
The handset that Samsung presented is very ugly. In my opinion, I expected after the progress in designing devices that the next generation or the next innovative thing will continue the line and will not look as if we have returned to the 90’s with a square design that is much more reminiscent of the Dev Alpha.
I hear talking about whether the device will be the Galaxy F or not (and I think it does not matter), but the issue is the price. This is definitely a critical point for such a device. Is it because a folding screen should pay more? How much more expensive to produce this screen?
The sites around the world are talking about $ 1770 which is a extreme sum for a phone; which is both a tablet and is square. Has anyone talked about the stability of such a screen? What is its durability? These are points that have not yet been answered.
To a certain extent, a folding screen on a mobile device may be innovative and useful. This is not innovative enough if the product does not really contribute to its user.
It seems to me that at least for now, Samsung’s folding device is mostly innovative and at the moment it seems that some will fold and buy a laptop that they do not need yet.
This post is reflection of my opinion only. I will love to hear your thoughts.
