The phone will reportedly sport display panels both on the outside and inside of the phone. The latter will comprise two screen that reveal a massive 7.3-inch OLED display when fully opened. When folded, however, the phone will only measure in at 4.5-inches.
As groundbreaking as it sounds, analysts are also forecasting that it won’t sell for cheap at launch. Kim Jang-Yeol, head of research at Golden Bridge Investment, said that the possible recommended retail price for the phone would set consumers back US$1850 (~RM7395) without any telco subsidies. That’s about 35% more than what a base iPhone X currently costs.
Samsung says it plans to launch the Galaxy X sometime within 2019. Additionally, the company says that it will have working prototypes to show to major US and European carriers, just in time for next year’s CES.
