Reports suggest that the phone will be powered by the Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855, the most powerful chip in the market and will be coming with a foldable OLED screen. However the screen will not break or crease. This is all about the information we’ve got about the device.

The less interesting part of high end devices, the pricing, as said earlier the phone is supposed to be priced at $1500.
