"Samsung TVs will not only have incredible 8K resolution on a 98" screen, they will also have more cross-platform compatibility than ever before. "Because it is the first foldable phone by Samsung, we are thinking more about offering some powerful contents for better user experiences that can be earned only from the foldable phone", an official said. The phone is also said to ship with four cameras on the back, and two cameras on the front, while a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED, curved display is also rumored for the device, which will make this smartphone the largest Galaxy S10 unit out there.

When folded in half, the size of the smartphone is reduced to 4.58 inches.

Previously, Samsung's best estimate was sometime in 2019, which, together with a rumor that the company hasn't even decided on a final design for the foldable phone, did not instill optimism.

Samsung is yet to confirm the date, but the company will soon issue invites for the Galaxy S10 press conference.
