It's not even an Apple product/press conference thread and people show up to whine about Apple -- damn.
At least they fold the right way
A phone that will unfold into something smaller than a mini-tablet doesn't seem all that appealing to me, though for people who really enjoy watching video/movies on a phone I get the appeal.
not quite westworld level
I look at it and think "cool"
Then I realise "why?"
Its not something I will ever own. I dont go over £60 when buying a pay as you go phone. Will be expensive.
Neat. From the dark images, that looks like the shells OEMs use to hide body designs -- our testing lab gets prototypes from OEMs in those cases, which are secured with a dozen stickers around the seam. It allows us to work on device compatibility pre-release without risking a leak.
It's pretty cool, had never seen them in public.
This will be very cool technology in a few years when it's ready for showtime, but I think it's still too early for this to hit consumer devices and be a success.
Let’s see if we can help you figure it as to spare other threads of similar behavior.
That is gonna be amazing. I just dont lke having a separate screen on the ouside when it is folded. Maybe it doesnt support good gorilla glass on the foldable screen? Prime time will be having the foldable on the outside itself.
Also, I see why Samsung didnt go with the notch: they know it wont fit well on a foldable screen.
Im curious if the foldable will come on the S10 or the Note 10 (this one is the device that should fit it better for obvious reasons).
If this is built as a Samsung note and includes pen support, I be will be so in on this. A true phone/e-reader/notebook is just about the perfect portable for 90% of my use cases.
In the future this will just be standard so people saying they don't want it won't have a choice.
Give it to me now.
I'd love this, give me a phone I can actually use with my hands instead of a giant slab that's stupidly unwieldy
I’d use it. Need smaller screen, just fold. Wanna read or watch something, unfold into tablet. I’d wanna see it in daily use before I consider though.
Anybody else feel like they kept the lights really dim for the same reason an overweight person may want to keep the lights off during sex.........
I read the phone was covered in a cass, to keep the physical design a secret, but who knows really.
Nice. Looks about the same as the leaked photos, including the color of the chassis? The overall screen is smaller than I expected, but it's as easy to fold as I'd hoped, compared to the Chinese ones.
It's thick because it needs to have some space in the chassis for the screen fold to spill into. These screens obviously don't fold down completely like paper.
That looks really neat. I read a ton of ebooks, this is extremely tempting
excited to upgrade next year, my Note 9 feels old now
"can be folded hundreds of thousands of times"
Q1 of this year:
And then in Q2 (for the US):
"All in all, iPhone accounted for eight out of the ten best-selling smartphones in the past three months in the United States."
why are the bezels on the phone side so large haha?
Yea they said it's in a case or whatever but the bezels on the tablet side and phone side look way different. Either this is an old prototype or it's still going to look pretty rough as a 1st gen device.
Fam where the fuck is microsoft bring back project courier
Microsoft may have sat on Andromeda for too long. Seems like a trend for MS.
A phone that folds out to tablet size? That's awesome. My phone has a 5.7inch screen, and the form factor is too big for my tastes. I'd love something smaller that folds out to be significantly larger than my current screen.
It will take a couple of years to mature, but this IS the future of phones as far as I'm concerned!
There's nothing that interests me about a foldable phone. Nothing.
I want my phone to feel solid. Having a device that is malleable and bendy...it's just odd. Doesn't matter how thin it is.
I appreciate how Samsung is innovating and trying to find that next big thing. I don't know that this is it.
Super cool. I just need the tablet mode to be way bigger to be worth it.
It's Panos baby and he's been working on it for years. It'll be special.
I really want to see a scratch test.
looks promising. will wait for a couple of generations though.
I don't have deep enough pockets and nor am I enough of a technophile to pick up a 1st generation foldable phone. I'll give it a few years when OEMs have had a crack at it to see they're any good by then.
First revision is the one to get. Not jumping in with first one. Gimme 5g S10 for now.
Gimme the thicc phone is it survives dropping it
Can’t wait to see more of this phone, I’m interested in it.
jts said was correct. You were banned for antagonising others with disingenuous arguements in the interest of baiting yet more hardware warz bullshit. So I figure it’s to your benefit to point it out since it seems a week ban wasn’t enough to change your deliberate toxic posting habits.
Looks dope as hell, this has me excited for the real version.
