Now that wraps are off the Infinity Flex Display smartphone that is an integral part of Samsung’s folding lineup, the company has steadily started releasing more details of the device. The display specifications were recently revealed in a panel presentation meant for developers at the ongoing Developer Conference.
Samsung’s Infinity Flex Display Smartphone Will Not Ship With a QHD+ Resolution as the Company Wants to Optimize Battery Life
The Cover Display of the phone would measure 4.58-inch and it will have a resolution of 1,960 x 840 pixels, while the main internal screen is 7.3 inches with a resolution of 2,152 x 1,536 pixels and has an aspect ratio of 4:3. The lower pixel densities would ensure that the displays consume less power than the QHD+ displays that Samsung flagships usually get. Moreover, the cover display would be powered off when the phone is folded out to conserve battery life. Samsung says that it is trying to extend the battery life to the same level as that of its current smartphones.
As far as pricing goes, the South Korean behemoth said that it is striving for an agreeable level. No definite timeline on the release date was given, and the phone could be released as early as January during the CES 2019 trade show, but the date could also move up. Even though the company is trying to set an appropriate price, the 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display would most likely be pretty costly to produce.

Add to the OLED screen at the front, the high-end 7nm chipset with a 5G modem, and multiple camera sensors, and the price would fly through the roof. If rumors are to go by, the phone will at least cost $1,500 and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it fetching $2,000. This is nearly double the $1,149 price of the iPhone XS Max, which analysts had earlier panned because of its high price. It remains to be seen if smartphone enthusiasts would be willing to shell out such a huge amount for the foldable phone.
What price do you think would be suitable for Samsung’s latest and greatest handset right now? Tell us your thoughts down in the comments.
