When a company files multiple patents for a new product, you know it’s going to be good. Such is the case with Samsung and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy X.
The novelty device is set to break new grounds in consumer electronics. The Samsung Galaxy X will reportedly feature a clam shell design with a 4K resolution Super AMOLED screen.
Another First For Samsung
Samsung is poised to be the first original equipment manufacturer to release a foldable smartphone. The design structure was immensely popular in the 1990s and early 2000s, before the arrival of the touch screen display.
There are speculations that the Samsung Galaxy X will come in two screen-size variants. The regular version will measure five inches long when folded and eight inches long when flipped to its usable form.
There’s still no word on what the other screen-size variant will entail. Tech pundits are still split on the details. Some believe it will simply be a larger device while some claim it will feature a curved-edge display.
It’s worth noting that Samsung usually releases two versions of its flagship smartphones. The first one is a cheaper block-type model while the second one is the higher-ended device with bezel-less side panels.
Neurogadget reported that Samsung is deep in development for the Samsung Galaxy X. Fans can expect an official announcement sometime in Q1 2017. The South Korean tech giant will then release an unfinished version of the device for user feedback.
Samsung Galaxy X Release Date
The general release version of the Samsung Galaxy X is slated to launch in Q4 2017. This gives Samsung enough time to make necessary adjustments and approve the final build model for mass production.
As of the moment, smartphone manufacturers are heavily competing against one another in the power-saving department. Samsung could potentially incorporate its latest Quick Charge technology on the Samsung Galaxy X.
