Samsung has already said that it wants to launch the first foldable smartphone. Foldable smartphones expected to gain popularity in the coming years. However, it may not be released until next year. Samsung hasn’t confirmed what it will be called. The Galaxy F is what the company might end up calling it.

Samsung’s foldable smartphone has already been the subject of many reports and leaks. Rumors about it have been circulating for years. The company confirmed only recently that it’s working on it. Samsung has also revealed that it will unveil the device at its developers’ conference this November.

Due to technical limitation of Gorilla Glass, Corning will have no chance to be a part of the Samsung’s first flexible smartphone. Instead, Samsung will use a special cover glass from Sumitomo Chemical of Japan to protect its display.Galaxy F can’t use the Gorilla glass “due to the former’s rigid nature.” 

Samsung is using transparent polyimide which posses durability properties making it suitable for the Galaxy F flexible form factor.According to  Sammobile, they detailed that, “the strong glass wouldn’t allow the device to fold into half. Samsung will thus use a transparent polyimide supplied by Sumitomo Chemical of Japan. It would be less durable than Gorilla Glass but would allow the Galaxy F to retain its flexible form factor.”

Currently, it’s unknown why Samsung denied the Corning Gorilla Glass and is using the material from Sumitomo. Well, whatever has happened will be for the betterment of the device and needs of the Samsung. As per the source, Samsung Galaxy F might release until next year, snubbing the rumors which slated it for the November launch. 

Rumors are here from past various years revealing the specs, design and other aspects of the device. But, it seems that Samsung is in no hurry to launch the Foldable device as the foldable trend is still a couple of years away from now. Let’s wait and watch as it may take another six months to get the actual look of the Galaxy F foldable device.

It may not release the device in November, though. Galaxy F may not be released until early next year. Samsung apparently wants to unveil it early so that it can lay claim to the title of having made the world’s first proper foldable smartphone.
