Samsung Galaxy X Foldable Smartphone Set to Unveil in 2018

There have been a Samsung Galaxy X that is in the making! The tech industry has already come across few other leaks concerning the device including the one where we reported that the same Galaxy X is set to be a limited variant in the South Korean markets. If the latest report is anything to go by, the upcoming Galaxy X foldable smartphone has all the possibilities to get unveiled next year, i.e. in 2018.

Being one of the pioneers to manufacture Galaxy Round (a curved display), Samsung with its foldable Galaxy X made its way only to limited markets instead of offering a global launch of the device. While there are various brands developing their in-house foldable smartphones (like the rivals LG and Apple), one may expect Samsung to be the initial manufacturer to offer a foldable smartphone to its fans, followed by other supergiants.

The New Samsung Galaxy X May Ship Next Year

From leaks, we come to know that Ko Dong-jin, the Samsung president, last September, has revealed that the company is planning to launch a foldable smartphone in the year 2018. An industry source suggests that the Korean tech giant’s Display has already developed a foldable panel with 1.0R curvature, reports Gizbot. Which is why one may expect the screen to completely be folded inward suggesting it to be just like a sheet of paper.

The Samsung Galaxy X was previously reported to undergo the Bluetooth certification where it appeared with a model number SM-G888N0. From the reports, the device was revealed to be capable enough of supporting the Bluetooth 4.2 technology. The device was also leaked to ship with the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. In all likelihood, the Galaxy X will run the latest Android operating system, out-of-the-box.

Also, the previous reports indicated that the device will be a dual screens smartphone which will also feature organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels (that can be folded open by up to 180 degrees). The supergiant Samsung is all set to have a strong competition with LG and Apple after it launches the Galaxy X next year, for more updates stay tuned.
