Samsung Foldable Smartphone could launch as Samsung Infinity Flex

Chinese company Royole has (just barely) beaten the Korean electronics giant to the punch with its FlexPai (pronounced "flex-pie") handset, the first foldable phone you'll actually be able to buy. The Samsung Developer Conference that takes place this week is when we expect to hear and see something regarding the future Samsung foldable smartphone.

The slow race to develop a foldable phone is coming to an end.

Earlier today, Samsung teased a photo with the company's logo folded on their Facebook page which seems to point to the ever talked about foldable phone that they have been working on for awhile now.

Bill Liu, founder and CEO of Royole during the conference said, "The Royole FlexPai foldable smartphone provides mobile phone users with a revolutionary experience compared to traditional phones", Liu said.

This is not the first hint from Samsung about a possible sneak peek at the upcoming foldable phone, though. In fact for Samsung, the focus has been more on including features that would help user get the most of the foldable screen. It feels like an appropriate name for the device given the branding that Samsung is already using for its near bezel-less OLED displays. She added that the plastic display was beginning to lift a little over the hinges, and made an "audible crunching sound" while being folded. Both the companies want to build a flexible phone which should be useful rather than just the design gimmick.

The FlexPai boasts 7.8 inch full color display screen, 4:3 aspect ratio, 1920 x 1440 resolution, edge screen notifications, and two cameras. Despite all the unfulfilled Project Valley and Galaxy X rumors of previous years, it's hard not to feel a little excitement for what Samsung might unveil later this week at its developer conference in San Francisco. Rumoured to be part of the Galaxy F smartphone series, this upcoming smartphone is now reported to have model number SM-F900x, with "x" representing the country of sale.
