Samsung has finally revealed its groundbreaking foldable phone at its 2018 developer’s conference. Samsung hasn’t revealed major specifications about the upcoming flagship. However, the device is rumored to be called the Galaxy X or Galaxy F, according to reports. Samsung teased its foldable phone through a short video. The company presented it under the cover of darkness to hide its design. The flexible device eschews glass for a composite polymer that's capable of being folded "hundreds of thousands of times", according to Samsung.
