We have talked about how Samsung is close to releasing a foldable smartphone sometime in 2018. A new report suggest that it may just be sooner than that. A certification filing with the South Korean National Radio Research Agency hints that the “Samsung Galaxy X” is coming soon – perhaps by end of 2017 or early 2018.
Code-named Project Valley, the phone with model number SM-G888N0 has just recently received its official certification from the crediting body. This means the phone is one step closer to an official launch – at least for the South Korean market.
As of now, no concrete information are available on the new phone, but we can expect at least Android 7.0, if not 8.0 out of the box. We also can expect the latest processor to be featured in the smartphone. The Exynos 8895 may featured as traditionally domestic models from Samsung usually are fitted with the in-house developed chipset.
The phone is said to be announced in two variants – the Galaxy X and the Galaxy X1 when it releases either at the end of 2017 or in 2018. The report also states that the phone will be a limited-run unit, with a possible 10,000 unit run. The technology we are looking forward is the foldable screen – chime in if this is something you are looking forward to.
