Foldable phones are coming – it’s only a matter of time – and it's looking increasingly like Samsung could be the first company to commercially launch one, possibly as soon as next year.
We may even know what it’s called, with the mysterious Samsung Galaxy X being the subject of several bendable leaks, foldable patents and flexible rumors.
But whether X marks the spot or not, we’re clearly entering a foldable future. To see how we got here and where we’re going, here’s the story of Samsung’s foldable phone so far.
The shape doesn’t seem particularly practical, so we doubt this is the form the Galaxy X will take, but it’s vaguely along the lines of the phone-to-tablet convertible we’ve been hearing about, and a similar design has popped up since.
That gels with a tweet from tipster @mmddj_china, who claims the Galaxy X will land in Q3 of 2017.
Though elsewhere we're hearing that Samsung may only have a prototype ready by then, and supply chain sources speaking to DigiTimes are even less optimistic, saying that a small production of foldable handsets will be made in the fourth quarter of the year,
A phone with a model number linked to the Galaxy X also now has its own support page on Samsung's site, further suggesting it might be coming soon.
So we still see folding phones in our future, and maybe even the not too distant future. A Galaxy X in 2017 seems very unlikely, but we may at least have seen some shots of it before the end of the year, and a 2018 or 2019 launch looks very possible.
WHAT... NO IPHONE X CANT BE KILLED BECAUSE OF THE SOFTWARE THAT THEY CREATED CAN NOT GET ANY BUGS OR VIRUSES BUT SAMSUNG CAN BECAUSE THEY CANT BE ASKED TO MAKE THERE OWN SOFTWARE AND THEY CAN GET A VIRUS ON SO EASLY
I like Samsung products but I hate Anroid app there's full of bugs inside google play store apps that will slowly kill your (Anroids) phones like turtles walk so, so sorry I'm not the fan of anroids but i do know Samsung was the best smartphone products of Anroid device...
WHY DOES SIRI HAVE TO STOP TALKING YOU ANDROID USERS CAN ONLY USE THE PHONE FOR A DAY THEN IT IS BROKEN BECAUSE OF A HUGE FIRE IN YOUR HOUSE AND IF YOU DO HAVE TIME TO GO ON IT , YOU DONT EVEN HAVE SIRI ALEXER OR CONTANA SO YOUR PRETTY MUCH SCREWED
