yeehaaa999, 04 Apr 2016yeah and curved edges that ifans say is a gimmick lol but it will be called innovation when it... moreCurved screen edges are a gimmick regardless of one's fanboyism. They serve no real purpose other than non-conventional looks; they add no extra functionality to a phone; and they add no extra value to a phone. (phones with curved screen edges are just like Motorola's round screen phones. Utterly useless and gimmicky)
Dovice, 02 Apr 2016Note 7?Nope the next Note 7 is going to have 6GB of RAM, curved glass on both sides and probably some new software features and stylus.
AnDas, 04 Apr 2016They're already trying to copy them by going with AMOLED screens on their next iPhone. yeah and curved edges that ifans say is a gimmick lol but it will be called innovation when its launched
GoNS, 02 Apr 2016When this comes out and Apple copies it (try not to buy one applefans)They're already trying to copy them by going with AMOLED screens on their next iPhone.
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2016They can keep them. Who wants a foldable phone? What a stupid idea. Obviously it'll eventually... moreYou must be an LG fan since they're the only company now that offers that feature, don't be premature about it I'm sure Samsung took that into consideration when they quality tested the foldable displays, don't put the cart before the horse lets see what the final product looks like.
When this comes out everyone will forget about LG's modular design phone or Apple's Force Touch. Samsung is innovating and changing the game once again, can't wait to see the first working prototype.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016the 5" is a diagonal corner to corner measurement. The screen would be ~ 3"x4". If you double ... moreThat's only if the screen use 4:3 aspect ratio. Since smartphone usually use 16:9, you have to recalculate your math.
In display size, height can be acquired with: height = H * diagonal / SQRT(W^2 + H^2)
And width can be acquired with: width = W / H * height
Where width, height, and diagonal are the screen size in inches, while W and H are screen size in pixels.
So, phone with 5 inches, 720p screen will have a height of: 1280 * 5 / SQRT(720^2 + 1280^2) = 4.36 inches and width of: 720 / 1280 * 4.36 = 2.45 inches.
When the phone is unfolded (assuming there are no additional screen area), we doubled the width and we get 4.90. Then, we get the new diagonal with: SQRT(4.90^2 + 4.36^2) = 6.56 inches.
I suppose, they will add additional hidden area to round it to 7 inches and change the aspect ratio of the resulting tablet to 4:3 (not exactly, but quite close).
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016actually apple has called changing there screen size an innovation when they brought out the p... moreno they din say innovation..its the force touch..dont make false accusation :P
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016the 5" is a diagonal corner to corner measurement. The screen would be ~ 3"x4". If you double ... moreDon't waste your time trying to explain these things to people. If they are more than 14 years old and they don't know this stuff (yeah, you learn about it in 6th - 7th grade) then there's no point in trying to teach them something that their brain can't logically and/or naturally comprehend. These are the people who come up with uneducated opinions about various things, thus making their opinions worthless.
The sad thing is you cannot take away their right to speak, even though that would be the first and most logical thing to do.
Travis100, 02 Apr 2016Hardly an original Samsung idea,there have been at least three attempts to do the same thing i... morethe 5" is a diagonal corner to corner measurement. The screen would be ~ 3"x4". If you double the screen area (by folding it out) the screen would be 6"x4". The diagonal on that is 7.2". So it's not a cop out, it's maths.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016gimmick! *eyes rolling*Indeed? What, more gimmicky than theÂ…: what, 3D Force Touch/Peek and Pop?
well about this device will not come not even next year.. i`m preaty sure. or at last not how was in commercial.. about the edge phone.? well first samsung i own its the edge one and that display it looks better then any other display .. so guess you have problems if you can`t have an edge phone .. what a joke ^_^
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016Show us an official statement by Apple that screen size is innovation. i Guess people like ... morethats the problem with trying to defend a company that uses the word innovation as a cliche' word. that start randomly throwing it into half there sentences , so trying to defend apple from that word , you would be hard pressed . took me less then 2 minutes on a google search to find innovation and screen sizes in the same sentence. but like i said wether it was meant to refer to the actual screen size, or some other thing within the sentence is up to debate. but that word is one where if someone says something and apple and apple called it an innovation. you best walk away. after all any apple key note speech has the word innovation in it more then even the word the.
Yousef Al Salmi, 03 Apr 2016Does not find anything useful in this other than showing "how my phone folds and gets bigger" ... moreMaybe rightÂ… hmm but what if iPhone was the first who has the potential to introduce this to the tech-world, would you still, issue the same comment then?

i Guess people like ... more And now it comes in two sizes,Â” said Philip Schiller, AppleÂ’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing
under there innovation keynote speech of the time
under there list of innovative features , weather they meant to call it an innovation or not could be up for debate. but my god i though apple fanboys were up on all the great announcements coming from them, how else do you know your phone of 6 months ago was outdated and time to buy a new one.
you can find it under there greatly innovative websight.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016no sony did it completely different, they used 2 seperate displays with a horrible looking gap... moreI am just talking able concept not technology so please study about before understanding.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016No it does not. I have one and its hardly better than my old Z1. ive had mine for a year and had no issues what so ever ! .. handset will last a good 2 days on a full charge and moderate use
Non-yet. But hmm. be watchful! coz when this phone comes out?, undoubtedly, Apple will hastily rush into the US courts to bombard Samsung with cases, HERE and THERE! You know what? instead of getting themselves busy hiring great innovators and engineers to possibly make the next future big-thing, the iPhone 8 or so?, what Apple did, and is currently doing, is engaging themselves a lot in hiring great lawyers, seeking journalists to give there phone product a good and compelling reviews no-matter-what, greatly hoping to make the tech world like buffoons, and possibly; even finding juries that can be bought just to overturn sales, at-least in the US.
