Samsung is all set to change the smartphone industry with foldable smartphone
The smartphone is changing and the biggest change is coming on the display front, we have seen the evolution of Smartphone screen from the time features phone to the latest bezel-less phones. If you see the progress, for few years smartphones display was not changing much but now with the introduction of the bezel-less display, the landscape has started changing.

Samsung has introduced one of the amazing infinity display in their S-series and Note Series and now the news is the company is planning to unveil a smartphone with a foldable design next year under its Galaxy Note brand. Samsung has been rumored to launch a smartphone with a bendable display for quite some time now, but it looks like the South Korean giant might finally take the covers off the smartphone next year.

As per the report in Bloomberg, Koh Dong-jin, president of mobile business at Samsung Electronics, said the company is setting its eyes on 2018 to release a smartphone with a bendable display. But he said there are several hurdles it has to overcome, leaving room to push back the release if those problems are not solved.

"As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year," he told reporters. "When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product."

He did not elaborate what the problems are. Analysts said mass-producing a foldable phone with top tech features and a thin body will take time.

Koh also said the company is working with auto-systems maker Harman to develop an artificial intelligence-enabled speaker that users can speak to in order to play music and conduct other tasks. Samsung acquired the Stamford, Connecticut-based company last year as part of its plans to expand in the emerging market for connected cars.

Amazon and Google already have those always-on voice-controlled speakers in the market while Apple's Homepod is due to go on sale later this year. It is not clear when Samsung's voice-controlled speaker, which will likely use the South Korean company's Bixby voice assistant, will be unveiled. Koh did not say when it will hit the market.

The comments were made at Samsung's news conference to announce the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone to domestic media, just hours before Apple announces its 10th-anniversary iPhone models.
