Samsung plans foldable Galaxy Note for 2018

Samsung hopes its "Galaxy X" will be the world's first truly foldable phone.

"We've had more than 250,000 people expressing interest in the buying the Note 8, which has been the highest ever for the Note series", said Asim Warsi, senior vice president-mobile business at Samsung India, declining to comment on the competition from Apple.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will launch exclusively with EE on September 22, costing 399 U.S. dollars, the technology giant announced. It had first showcased a flexible display prototype called Youm in 2013.

The technology giant said the 8 and 8 Plus are also the first smartphones to have been designed for augmented reality (AR).

Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook showed off the iPhone X with an edge-to-edge screen during an event at the company's new $5 billion headquarters in Cupertino, California, on Tuesday. He also confirmed rumors that Samsung and its newly acquired audio division Harman are working to develop "artificial intelligence-enabled speaker that users can speak to play music and conduct other tasks".

"Foldable phones are on our roadmap", Koh said Tuesday.

Apple has won over Samsung this time because the iPhone X is a huge upgrade in many years whereas the Galaxy Note 4 is just bigger, better but loses the race because its competitor offers a wholesome experience.

The company has been mum about when the speaker will be launched. With already so much action going on with the release of the S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 this year, Samsung will have exhausted much of its concentration in order to get back to the development of the Galaxy X. Over the last few months, Samsung filed a number of patents for a smartphone that could fold into half. However, the company has set a goal of debuting the highly anticipated foldable smartphone in next year.

If it can make it more affordable, then Samsung could win the price war. Speculation has been abounding that Samsung would come out with a foldable phone sometime next year, but no one knew it would be branded under the Galaxy name. The phone price starts at 1.1million won (4969) in South Korea and $930 in the U.S.
