Samsung gives peek at device that will fold

With lights on the stage dimmed, Justin Denison, a senior vice president of mobile product marketing, gives a glimpse of Samsung's first foldable mobile device at a developers conference in San Francisco Wednesday.

Samsung said it would be ready for mass production in the coming months.

The unfolded screen of the upcoming phone is bigger than Samsung's biggest smartphone, the Note9, which is 6.4 inches, and the iPhone XS Max at 6.5 inches. A Bloomberg report a few days ago provided a similar detail about the phone's front-facing camera, and we had seen reports out of South Korea before then that said the same thing.

According to Samsung Exynos' Twitter page, the company plans to show off the new Exynos processor on November 14th.

She said Royole told her the issues were "due to the adhesive used in the engineering samples".

Samsung needs to get the foldable phone right to reverse steep declines in profit and restore some of the cachet its brand has lost to Apple.

The Verge's reporter Nick Statt said that when folded, the phone was "bulky" and "feels miles away in quality" from a high-end smartphone.
