Samsung is reportedly planning to release two foldable smartphones with the codename Galaxy X. The first model might be unveiled in 2017.
Samsung might introduce the first model of its foldable phones at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2017. However, there are also claims that it will be announced at the Mobile World Congress in March 2017.
The device will serve as a sneak peek of what the company is actually planning to release. Recent reports reveal that the South Korean company will first issue a dual-screen device which will include minor features.
The first model of Samsung Galaxy X will be a limited edition since it is only intended to examine the responses of users. The final product which includes all the features of a high-end smartphone with fully foldable design will be released later.
The final Samsung Galaxy X model might be made available to customers in late 2018, as per Android Headlines. The multinational company has not yet commented on this but many are positive that speculation will be realised soon. The concept of a foldable display was first revealed by Samsung at the CES 2013.
Samsung Galaxy X will have a flexible OLED display capable of bending. The foldable device can function as a tablet and as a cellphone. It will have an AMOLED screen and will be powered by the latest processor from Qualcomm, according to Digital Trends.
Samsung Galaxy X will have an 8-inch screen when used as a tablet. When folded, the screen size will be reduced to 5-inch.
