Samsung Needs “More Time” for Foldable Phone

At the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 in New York this month, Samsung Mobile business president Koh Dong-jin said that the company “needs more time” to develop a foldable smartphone. “We really want to make it in the foldable device sector,” he said, “but we need more time to provide meaningful innovations and convenience considering the current status of technology. We need serious changes in software and user experience to build foldable smartphones and this will certainly take time.” This does, however, imply that the hardware is nearing completion.
