If you believe the latest rumors, Samsung plans to launch its unique flexible smartphone in 2018. The model was named Samsung Galaxy X and has already passed certification in South Korea. Thus, the Galaxy X can be announced already at the CES in Las Vegas on January 9 next year. Recently it became known that the device will be released in a limited edition.
The world’s first mass smartphone with a folding screen It is expected that the Galaxy X will receive flagship characteristics and an unusual form factor. It will be a smartphone with a frameless screen with a 2: 1 aspect ratio, which will be folded in half. This is the first such device in the world, launched into mass production.
Limited edition Insiders from the homeland of Samsung report that in the first batch of Galaxy X there will be only 100 000 units thus, it may happen that the entire circulation of the unusual device will remain in South Korea. It can be considered a kind of test of a new, flexible form factor. And further, depending on how well the device manifests itself during a limited release in South Korea, a global launch may take place in 2019.
When to wait for other devices? It is also reported that the debut of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + will be held on February 25, 2018. There is a possibility that the Galaxy X may appear along with the Galaxy, and not at the beginning of the year. Note 9 will appear in August of next year or during IFA 2018, which will be held between August 31 and September 5.
