I love the idea behind the device, but there's no way in H.E. double toothpicks I'm paying that lol.

bill dennison Jun 17, 2018 12:24 PM

:lol:

you know that screen will crack after so many times you fold it

pay 2k to be a guinea pig thanks but no

Greasy Jun 17, 2018 12:40 PM

That thing looks sick, but hard pass for me.

It could cost that much, but what can it do? A larger screen will use more battery. Will it have a new battery tech?

Totally makes sense for the rich kid I change my phone every year anyway type. The middle class I need the phone to last 3-4 years type wont touch it.

logical Jun 18, 2018 01:19 AM

I'm not rich but I get a phone every year but I wouldn't pay 2k for any phone. It would have to be a forever phone.

With a warranty to match.

Neat phone for rich people.

Silent-Runner Jun 18, 2018 09:00 AM

that actually looks like a gimmick from a comic they had (over here) when i was a child. The mag was called "Yps".

No way someone would pay that ridiculous amount of money, i mean, c'mon there isn't even an apple on it......:bleh:

GTwannabe Jun 18, 2018 11:48 AM

On the plus side when it bursts into flames you can unfold and grill lunch.

Sasquach Jun 18, 2018 12:46 PM

I guess they're trying to out-expensive Apple.

Looks like they're winning by 1000 dollars.

we all know that IF there was an apple on this it would cost 1000 dollars more :lol: ... and people would sell their liver to get one

That's not the galaxy x. It's a clickbait title. No knows what the Galaxy X looks like. China makes counterfeit Samsungs phone. You'll find knock off products that aren't even out yet.

And don't forget the obligatory heavy and bulky charging case that prevents use of the fold function.

Lightning 2, incompatible with lightning 1

Also, everything is a gimmick until everyone buys it.

KAC Jun 20, 2018 12:07 PM

How is this passing off as a legit image in this forum? Wtf?

Silent-Runner Jun 20, 2018 01:58 PM

of course it's just a concept like all the other images floating around.

SirBaron Jun 21, 2018 06:30 PM

Will probably get dead pixels clusters in the folds like my galaxy s8+ :bleh:

You might be doing it wrong :p

SirBaron Jun 23, 2018 07:42 AM

Well the folds I meant this phone :P, on the curved edge on my phone is a cluster of dead pixels, and it's quite a common thing too.

Good phone, shoddy craftmanship.

Spencer Jun 29, 2018 03:58 PM

Could be the notice me factor that gets the middle class to buy it? I think with just about every expensive cell phone you can't really notice it's a pricey model unless you're right up close to it. I could be wrong about that and correct me if so.

But with a foldable screen people will see you unfold it and realize woah he's got one of those.

Eisberg Jul 5, 2018 05:58 AM

The only people who are going to have that phone are the rich and the people on welfare:p
