DJ Koh confirms one million units of Samsung's foldable phone will be released in first half of 2019

Samsung showed off its long-awaited foldable Infinity Flex Display last week at its annual developer conference. During the presentation, Samsung senior vice president of mobile marketing, Justin Dennison, stated that the foldable device will go into mass production "in the coming months."

Samsung mobile chief, DJ Koh, also confirmed at a press conference that the phone will be released in the first half of 2019, and that Samsung will produce at least one million units of the phone, with more to be produced if market response is good.

At the same time, Koh also admitted that Samsung will not be the first to the market with a foldable phone, as the Royole FlexPai was introduced on 31st October. The FlexPai has a 7.8-inch AMOLED screen with a display resolution of 1,920 x 1,440 pixels when unfolded. The screen size drops to 4-inches when folded and is available for pre-order now.
