Hello, Hitech’ians welcome back to another tech post. In this post, I’ll tell you about the Samsung foldable phone which may arrive in Samsung Developer Conference 2018. So, without wasting much time let’s head over to it.
Today is the era of technology. And you all know that how the technological advancement is continously been seen in the smartphones day-by-day. From In-display fingerprint readers to bezel-less displays and from dual-cameras to triple or quad-cameras. We have seen so much of the technological revolution in the smartphone industry in the year 2018. But believe me, there’s a lot more to come. Now, there are rumours that Samsung may show the prototype of its foldable smartphone in the month of November 2018.
From several months, Samsung has been constantly teasing the launch of its first-ever foldable smartphone, which is rumoured to become a reality as soon as in the month of November 2018 – something the company officials had said before. Recently, Samsung has posted a teaser of its upcoming Samsung Developer Conference, where the rumoured foldable smartphone is expected to be announced. This teaser landed within days of Samsung CEO DJ Koh confirming the fact that the upcoming smartphone will actually be a tablet that can be folded into a smartphone that can fit into a pocket.

In a teaser posted from the company’s official account on Twitter, Samsung Mobile has given some info of its upcoming Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) which will be held between November 7-8 in Moscone West, San Francisco, California in the year 2018. The teaser slightly hints towards the foldable smartphone by showing an arrow with the text “Where Now Meets Next”. The arrow is then seen to be straightened, which is identical to the functionality that DJ Koh confirmed. The official tweet also mentioned, “The crossroads between the present and the future – Samsung Developer Conference is where you’ll meet the knowledge needed to stay on tech’s cutting edge.”
