Next month Samsung will be holding their annual Samsung Developer Conference on November 7th and 8th in San Francisco. After releasing a short teaser video clip announcing the event, at least one source thinks Samsung may be ready to unveil their fold-able smartphone. If that prediction is accurate, it would be consistent with previous indications from Samsung’s DJ Koh who has said he wants the company to announce their fold-able device before the end of 2018.
In the teaser video, a small icon enters the screen and pops open for form a left-angle bracket before fully opening to a single vertical line. Do you think that is a subtle hint from Samsung that their folding smartphone – popularly called the “Galaxy X” – will be on display at the SDC?

If Samsung really did want to unveil the device in 2018 to keep Koh’s projection on target, the SDC is probably Samsung’s last chance to do that. Even if revealed at the conference, most sources think an actual device may not be ready to hit the market until early 2019 despite suggestions that Samsung was ramping up production for a 2018 release.
