Why we need a foldable phone? I don't get it. As a look at the pictures, when it's folded it would be way more uncomfortable to wear in the pocket.
I thought I'd like it, but this is one UGLY device.
I'd never pay for something like this.
Looks hella ugly when closed, surface book vibes. Also no headfone jack. BIG FAIL

They always have something ... moreMany of the sour grapes are from across the fence who envy of all innovations that Samsung users continue to enjoy while they are forced to sit and navigate their FIVE rows icons al the day and night by paying ransom every year for nothing....Let they crave and be jealous of Sammy products....Yes, I can never buy this bendable Mobile for $1850 for sure but I won't pay $1500 for some outdated spec and os either. I enjoy my Note 8!
Oh my god why does it look like an ugly caterpillar when it's folded!!!??
this phone will be more aggressive on getting the burn samsung panels. will be marked a line into the center that would be the first one will be getting by the fans

This are some of Nokia innovation that could be ours if microsoft and the army of useless money grabers would have not turn off it's fire. Nokia was just way ahead with everything in front of everybody.
when looking at this design I wonder...why would this exist in the first place? it takes more space than a regular phone anyway

I do not like samesung, but for sure i hate stupidity more. This panel will not be a glass panel. It is actually not an amoled, not an ips it is a totally other technology!

I said primitive manner not primitive thinking. Im referring to the bashing manner. Negativity is only good if it is a constructive criticism. The way most of comment here goes is simply just wanting to express hatred.

He's probably exagerating, but you too! Name one thing samesung innovated (or apple, for what matters) and i tell you who made it first.
i dont want to fold my phone
may be the future is more portable, but no way, not doing it now.
people who complain about what samsung has innovated since s8, dude, making improvements on perfection is hard.
Durability has to be kept in mind too, oppo has crap durability, the nex S is far better in durability. jerryrig tested
so well they had to save something for their 10th anniversary phone, what improvements/innovation would u want? more screen to body ratio and in screen finger print reader, what else?
This is more like a bendable phone not foldable. I'm more intriguing with the real foldable phone they teased 5 years ago.

This is really exciting. I don't think the wedge gap will be that big though; there were rumors that the reason it took sometime for Samsung to out a foldable phone is because they were looking for a material that can both be stretched and folded ever so smaller without forming creases overtime. Samsung may not have been the pioneer in this endeavor as they were not in bigger screens (the first smartphone with 5 inch screen was the Dell Streak), but it was Samsung who did push for bigger and bigger display with the Note series. This time with foldables it really will be a gamble for them as this is not just a matter of device size (relative to the size of the screen) but more of the entire form factor. This proposal is actually better than being completely foldable without a gap as that would really create those creases in the infolds in the long run.
The evolution to foldable/rollable screens and holographic displays are simply the future of smartphones and personal computing. No, not notches nor micro bezels.

Or you're a fanboy of some other company and couldn't think of genuine facts to corroborate your claims with.
The Note 9 is the most completely smartphone around. As an overall package, it is Second to None.

They always have something to criticize about it instead of giving out ideas. These manner are very primitive like middle ages people.
