Galaxy S10 forecasts increased as 'differentiation' from iPhone boosts sales

Samsung launched its first foldable device, the Galaxy Fold, alongside the Galaxy S10 series and the phone will be available starting April 26 in the US and May 3 in Europe.

Samsung unveiled its folding phone, the Galaxy Fold, at a dedicated event earlier in February. All phones are water resistant and pack a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unlike Samsung's Galaxy Fold, you won't need to spend $2,000 on the Lego Pop-Up Book set, as it will go on sale for just $70.00 (around R990).

The company aims to secure itself as the number one player in the foldable market, according to a Bloomberg report.

If you were one of the people who preferred Huawei's outward-folding Mate X, you'll be pleased to hear Samsung is also making a phone that folds that way too.

After that, we can apparently expect to see rollable and stretchable screens from Samsung on future devices. It is also said to be thinner since the device will not come with the extra display. "I have to admit I find the latter's 4.6" cover display ridiculously small, but it's definitely more convenient than unfolding your device while you're on the move. Because no one really has an idea of what the ideal foldable phone design is, Samsung is experimenting with two other designs.

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

The innovative touch sensor of the S10 proved impossible to extract from the screen, leading the gang to conclude that should the sensor break, the user is going to have to fork out for a new display.

Bloomberg says that Samsung forecasts producing at least 1 million foldable devices this year.

The report also remarked that Samsung now has the capability to produce almost 2.4 million foldable displays in a year and is mulling over ramping up production to 10 million per year. Samsung may offer free screen replacements to compensate for the issue.

Samsung has already revealed the price of the Galaxy S10 series.
