Samsung’s long rumoured foldable smartphone could be launched as early as January 2018, according to a new leak.
Samsung all but confirmed the existence of the new Galaxy X smartphone after publishing an official support page for the device on its website.
The support page listed a device with model number SM-G888N0, which according to reports in South Korea is the codename for the new Galaxy X smartphone.
Tech site GSM Arena were the first to spot the support page, which up until now is just about the only official information on the eagerly anticipated device.
A report from last week claimed that the Samsung Galaxy X has already received Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certifications from South Korea’s National Radio Agency.
Samsung is widely expected to launch the Galaxy S9 in early 2018, most like likely at Mobile World Congress which is held in 26 Feb – 1 Mar in Barcelona.
However, other reports now suggest that Samsung will launch the foldable Galaxy X at the CES consumer tech show which is held in January.
Another report on Dutch tech site Lets Go Digital says the Galaxy X will be similar to a traditional flip phone but will include two displays, one of which will be flexible. The device will be able to bend or fold in the middle.
The site also says that Samsung is working on a foldable tablet.
