On the front is a small screen and on the back you can find the cameras, claims The Wall Street Journal . According to the newspaper, the device would have a screen of around 7. “The size of the secondary screen at the front does not mention the article.

According to the newspaper, Samsung is aiming for the first generation of the device, to be released in 2019, on a niche such as gamers. The price would also be too high for a mainstream phone. According to The Wall Street Journal, the phone would cost more than $ 1500, which in Europe including VAT would be around 1600 euros. The most expensive Samsung phone so far is the Galaxy Note 8 from last year, which cost 999 euros upon release. In addition to the screen, other components would cost more than other devices.

With the model, Samsung would like to explore the market for foldable smartphones, without the immediate objective of selling a lot of them. The same thing happened with the curved screens that are now on the Galaxy S9 and Note 8 for example; Samsung tried that out with a variant on the Galaxy Note 4, with the name Note Edge. That too appeared in a relatively small edition.

The manufacturer wants to make a smartphone with folding screen for years and hopes to be the first. Reportedly, Chinese manufacturers are also working on technology, although they probably need oled screens from Samsung. Samsung has already confirmed that it is working on a smartphone with folding screen, but that has been postponed time and time again. In recent months the release of the device would have become ‘a top priority’ within Samsung.

The business newspaper also mentions the arrival of a Samsung speaker with assistant Bixby. According to the newspaper, the speaker is spherical with legs at the bottom. The speaker would come with the Galaxy Note 9 in August and cost about $ 300. Samsung already confirmed to work on the speaker.
