Samsung Galaxy X Release Date, Specs, News & Update: Foldable 4K Display Coming In 2017; 6 GB RAM, Snapdragon 830 On Board?
The year 2016 has been pretty rough for Samsung after its anticipated phablet, Samsung Galaxy Note 7, was involved in a massive recall due to exploding batteries. However, the company is set to stay in the competition by introducing impressive new products in the future - one of them is the Samsung Galaxy X.
Samsung Galaxy X is said to be a foldable smartphone that will make its debut sometime in 2017. Apart from the unique bendable screen, the device is also said to have a 4K AMOLED display. The rumors about its foldable feature started when patents filed by the South Korean tech giant have been shared online. That said, Samsung could be pretty much the first smartphone manufacturer to introduce a foldable smart device.
Latest rumors also suggest that Samsung Galaxy X will be available in two variants. One is said to measure five inches long when folded to a close and eight inches long when flipped open. Reports about the other variant have been scarce but it is assumed that this particular model should be larger in size. Other reports suggest that the other variant of the foldable Galaxy X could have a curved edge.
Samsung Galaxy X is expected to be introduced in the first quarter of next year, with the 2017 Mobile World Congress as the most probable venue. CES 2017 runs from Feb. 27 to Mar. 2, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain so fans might probably watch out for the foldable Samsung phone by then. As for the release, Morning News USA reported that the units should be ready for distribution not later than Q4 2017.
Meanwhile, the hardware specs of the Samsung Galaxy X have not been reported much. Based on speculations, the foldable device could sport a 4 GB of RAM; a 6 GB RAM device is also not far from possible. It is also rumored that the device could run on next-gen processors like Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 or Exynos 8895. Nothing is official at this point and fans should take the reports with a grain of salt.
