Samsung is torn between two names for its folding phone, report claims

The name of Samsung’s keenly anticipated folding smartphone may have just been revealed. According to a new report, the two leading candidates are ‘Samsung Flex’ and ‘Samsung Galaxy Flex’.

Citing “a person familiar with the matter”, a new report from The Wall Street Journal − which has also spilled some tasty Samsung Galaxy S10 beans − claims that Samsung executives are still debating names for the handset, which until now has been widely known as either the Galaxy X or Galaxy F.

The decision is apparently “far from final”, but Galaxy Flex is the option that makes the most sense to us (hope you’re listening, unnamed Samsung execs).

The report also backs up earlier claims that the folding handset will feature a 7.3-inch display that will fold like a book.

Though nothing has yet been confirmed (or denied) by Samsung, certain spec rumours have popped up time and time again. The word on the street is that the smartphone will feature a pair of OLED displays − an external one measuring 4.6 inches and an internal one measuring 7.3 inches.

Samsung will almost certainly launch the S10 and Flex at separate events in early 2019 − we’re expecting the former to be unveiled at MWC 2019 in February, and the latter to be unveiled soon after, in March.
