Samsung's Foldable Display Smartphone Gets Certified In Korea


Rumours indicate the Samsung X foldable smartphone may arrive some time in 2018.

The foldable Samsung Galaxy X will, without a doubt, be one of the most interesting handsets to launch for a while.

A new device by Samsung with the model number SM-G888N0 has made an appearance at Bluetooth SIG sometime ago.

Now, a Samsung device with model number SM-G888 has appeared on South Korea's National Radio Research Agency for certification. The third largest wireless carrier in the country is expected to release the September Android Security Update for the Galaxy Note 8 in the coming weeks but no firm availability windows for the thereof are known as of this writing. So, all the people who would like to have the Samsung Galaxy X need to wait till the next year. However, this is not the first time that Samsung has shown interest in bendable screen technology. The phone will be a part of Samsung's "Note" lineup, according to Dongjin Koh. It already did this with the Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, but it's going to be unveiling an even more dramatic change: a truly foldable smartphone.

The main selling point of Galaxy X is that the phone will fold in some way.

Looking at the flagship smartphone's past appearances, it came into highlight with its Wi-fi and Bluetooth certification back in July. We've been anticipating for one since past year when we were told the South Korean tech giant would release two phones with bendable screens and rollable display as confirmed by an executive.

If the bendable Galaxy X is real and destined for a 2018 launch, we could see it as soon as Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in late-February. The FFOLED screens still leverage all the best qualities of Samsung's impressive Super AMOLED displays, and we believe the Galaxy X will use next-gen high-end CPUs from Qualcomm and Samsung's own Exynos brand. We also do not know much about the name, but "Galaxy X" seems to be the popular consensus as of now.

When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product.
