Samsung’s most interesting upcoming handset is the Samsung Galaxy F, their dual-screen Android handset which will work like both a phone and tablet. Samsung has released some specs of the handset – we know the screen size will be 7.3 inches for example, and we expect the handset to be shown off at Samsung’s Unpacked event.
What has been a bit mysterious was what the device will actually be called. Would it be simply the Samsung Galaxy F, the Flex or the Fold.
Now reliable leaker Evan Blass appears to have weighed in on the matter, and it all comes down to the fold.

I would personally have gone with Flex, given how much the device is expected to cost, with rumours of a starting price of $1500.
Some specs, via AllAboutSamsung.de have leaked earlier, and this includes:
|Code name||SM-F900, aka Winner|
|Processor||Likely Snapdragon 855|
|Storage||512 GB/ 1TB versions|
|Screen 1||4.58 inch, 840×1960, 420 dpi|
|Screen 2||7.3-inch Infinity Flex screen, 1536×2152, 420 dpi|
|Battery||2 x 2200 mAh, total 4400 mAh|
|Camera||Triple Rear Camera|
|Colour||Black and Silver|
|Release date||Q2 2019|
The linked specs have not been confirmed by AAS, and some of their specs are also provisional, but it is clear the device will be a high-end power-house irrespective of the number of screens it will have.
Samsung is believed to have shown off the device at CES to executives there, who were quite impressed. They note the phone is “specialized for multitasking,” and would be “highly useful for people who own both a smartphone and tablet.”
