Found the Samsung Edge screen cool? Something cooler is on the way. Samsung has been working on the foldable displays since a long time and now the way for Samsung Galaxy X has been paved as it will be out in 2017.
Here is all you need to know about the phone, Samsung has been planning to launch it in 2017, but according to the rumours, it may only be a limited run to test out the device, which may not get a wide release.
The phone’s model number, SM-G888N0 was listed on documents for Bluetooth testing. Then it was referenced in Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance and in filings submitted to the National Radio Research Agency of the Korea Communications Commission.
And according to the report, only 100,000 handsets will be out in 2017. So, with a such a small number we should not expect the phone to be available for the public. The phone has two OLED display panels with a hingle in the middle.
According to a source that spoke to the Korea Herald, Samsung may roll out more than “100,000 units of fold-out devices” later on this year. The device can reportedly be used as a 7-inch tablet when unfolded. Previous leaks from Twitter user and Samsung leakster @mmddj_china said that the device will be available to the public to purchase during the third or fourth quarter of 2017.
The latest news suggests the Galaxy X will launch in 2018. The new details comes straight from the horse’s mouth itself, with Samsung’s own Koh Dong-Jin speaking to journalists on 12 September 2017. According to Bloomberg, the president of mobile business discussed the Galaxy X, and its 2018 release date: “As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year,” he said, continuing: “When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product.” Here’s hoping that 2018 release doesn’t get pushed back.
