Speaking about the so-called ‘Galaxy F’, Koh stressed Samsung is "focusing on developing innovations that will be genuinely accepted and liked by consumers". What’s more, the company acknowledges rivals are trying to beat Samsung to the punch with this technology and it "didn't want to lose the world's first title".

Furthermore, Koh explained that the Galaxy F is not a one-off concept, but the beginning of a long-running new range, stressing: “We wouldn't have started [the project] if it was a going to be a one-time thing."

The timing of Koh’s comments are crucial. With >clouds hanging over the future of Galaxy Note range, something which Apple may capitalise on

, Samsung needs a new flagship smartphone which signals the company can keep pace not only with Apple but innovative Chinese phone makers like Vivo and Oppo who both made bezel-less, notch-less phones this year.
