In September 2015, we first published a report about the rumored Samsung foldable smartphone which looks likes it’s got a name, Galaxy X. From September 2015 to June 2016 is a pretty long time and we have got some fresh information regarding this mystery smartphone.
Firstly, the codename for the smartphone remains “Project Valley”, there are reports that the mystery phone with come with an irish scanner, meaning users will have the ability to encrypt and unlock the phone with their eyes.
Samsung’s foldable phone would be a huge technological marvel, this reason of this is simply because it’s not going to be foldable like a flip device neither will it have two separate screens. The Galaxy X would be bendable; the display would “actually” be foldable without damages. How the h*ll will this happen? I will attempt to answer that question in the future, for now, lets move on.
A report by ChristianDaily says the Samsung has filed a patent for this device and it includes a fingerprint scanner. While this looks super cool, we can’t be certain that the patent would come to life 100% on the Galaxy X, but it does leave a glimmer of hope that the phone will have an extra layer of security which could be an irish scanner or the fingerprint sensor.
Samsung is said to be preparing launch of this hotly anticipated smartphone in 2017, this looks legit following reports that the South Korean Major would launch five flagship smartphones next year. The Galaxy X is expected to make its debut alongside the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note flaghsips. It is also said that the foldable phone will come with 4K display, Snapdragon 830 SoC and 8GB RAM.
The so-called Galaxy X display has also be rumored to feature the “diamond PenTile sub-pixel arrangement” and we could get our first glimpse of the phone at the 2017 MWC. Samsung is surely making a monster; Apple has got to have a direct response to whatever impact this beast will have on the smartphone community.
