Lately, we have been hearing a lot about Samsung’s foldable phone, which is expected to be dubbed the Galaxy X. While a few rumours had suggested that the smartphone will be released in Q3 2017, newer ones claim that Samsung will unveil the world’s first foldable smartphone only in 2019.
It was even expected that Samsung will release a working prototype of the device this year. Recently, we reported that the Galaxy X received certification in South Korea and now a few images have surfaced. It is worthy to note that the smartphone received Wi-Fi certification in April and Bluetooth certification in August.
An application filed for the device with model number SM-6888 at Korea’s National Radio Research Agency, reveals the key information. Samsung’s CEO has officially confirmed that the foldable smartphone is indeed happening and the smartphone is expected to make its way to South Korea first.
The smartphone industry is jam packed with competition and innovative features. 2017 has been an year of disappearing bezels and increasing screen sizes. If Samsung can successfully implement the idea of the foldable displays, this could well be the next big thing in the industry. As far as we can see, Samsung is definitely not rushing into it and the company is taking it’s time to perfect the foldable OLED display technology.
The Samsung Galaxy X will be a top of the line offering from Samsung, costing significantly higher than the current flagship phones that the company makes.
