According to a new report from South Korea, the much-hyped foldable smartphone from Samsung is likely to be made official in February at next year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The report says the company has asked partners to start the supply of parts for the device by November this year. It further adds the project code name for the phone has also been changed from Valley to Winner, which experts say is an indication the project has moved beyond the development phase and nearing release.
So what about the next Galaxy S series phone? Well, the report notes it will be pulled by a couple of months and will debut in January. The Korean company will allegedly use the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) platform to unveil the Galaxy S10, although that seems unlikely. If anything the company might hold a standalone event for the next S-series devices.
In case you missed it, Samsung’s CEO said earlier this year the company is working to ensure that the foldable smartphone – said to called Galaxy X – isn’t just a gimmick.
