Samsung Electronics has already introduced its highly anticipated foldable smartphone. However, the tech giant did not give a release date when it showcased images of the device during its Developer Conference last week. Interestingly, industry sources are claiming that they have information on the handset’s official release on the market.

Industry sources told different news outlets including Yonhap on Monday that Samsung is planning to launch its Galaxy F foldable smartphone this coming March. If true, the device will officially debut a month after the Galaxy S10’s unveiling in February.

According to industry sources, Samsung is also making another big move in March by releasing another edition of the Galaxy S10 alongside the Galaxy F. This edition of the flagship handset is said to run on the 5G network.

The statement made by industry sources seems to coincide with what Samsung Electronics President Koh Dong-jin said last week. Samsung’s mobile business head previously stated that the company will release its foldable smartphone within the first half of 2019.

Samsung is very likely showcasing working models of the Galaxy F foldable smartphone during the Mobile World Congress in February, ahead of the device’s official release the month after. Unfortunately, the phone is not expected to come equipped with 5G network support, as per Korea Herald.

Koh said that when the foldable smartphone becomes available on the market, initial supplies will only be limited. In fact, only 1 million units will be shipped at the very beginning. Pricing hasn’t been decided yet, but industry watchers are expecting the device to retail for around 2 million won or US$1,770.

As previously reported by IBTimes, the Galaxy F features a large 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display that has a screen resolution of 1536 x 2152 and an aspect ratio of 4:2:3. The device also has a “cover display” that measures 4.58 inches and has a screen resolution of 1960 x 840 and an aspect ratio of 21:9.

“The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience. We are excited to work with developers on this new platform to create new value for our customers. We cannot wait to see where the technology and collaboration takes us,” Koh said at the Samsung Developer Conference last week.
