The news comes via TechRadar (opens in new tab), who report on an interview that Samsung CEO DJ Koh ran with American news site CNBC (opens in new tab), where Koh said that "it's time to deliver" on a Samsung-made foldable device, before hinting that it could be unveiled at the Samsung Developer Conference in November.

"You can use most of the uses ... on foldable status. But when you need to browse or see something, then you may need to unfold it."
Right now we're guessing the latter, but it looks like we won't have to wait long to find out for sure, as Koh's comments hinting while the Samsung folding phone won't likely be in people's hands until early 2019, looks nailed on to be revealed in only a few months time.
