Huawei joins bendable devices trend, revealing its Mate X foldable phone

The Galaxy Fold comprises a 12cm front display, and a 19cm interior screen.

Samsung's new Galaxy Fold smartphone which features the world's first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display that works with the next-generation 5G networks is seen in this image released in San Francisco, California.

Speaking to select media after the India launch of the Galaxy S10 series in New Delhi on Wednesday, DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics, confirmed that the Galaxy Fold will indeed launch in India.

While the Galaxy Fold will launch in early April, the clamshell won't be out until either late this year or early next. The outwards-folding phone will come afterwards, and it should be thinner as it'll have no extra screen.

In the coming months before the Galaxy Fold is sold commercially, Samsung is said to be improving the durability of its Infinity-Flex display.
