Foldable Samsung Galaxy X phone to come in 2017 with 4K flexible display

Samsung logoAs the mobile technology market continues to expand at a massive rate, smartphone manufacturers have picked up the pace and stopped settling for just one or two flagship releases per year. This is also the case of technology giant Samsung, which intends to release five flagship phones in the upcoming year, according to a report by Sammobile. One of those would be the highly anticipated Galaxy X.

A recent rumor states that South Korean company, Samsung is set on unveiling five new flagships in 2017. Supposedly, Samsung will introduce the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Edge in the first half of the year, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy Note 7 Edge would be unveiled in the second half.

Apart from Galaxy X, all other Samsung flagships of 2017 will incorporate QHD Super AMOLED screens with RGB subpixels arrangement. However, Galaxy X will have PenTile subpixel arrangement.

The highly anticipated Galaxy X with foldable display is also one the list of upcoming flagships in 2017. The report suggests that the Galaxy X will be a foldable phone with 4K resolution display. Last year, rumors surfaced about Samsung’s foldable phone, as part of the Project Valley.

Back in September last year, information about a Samsung patent with the name Project Valley surfaced and offered some insight on how the foldable phone would look like.

At the time, it was also said that Samsung was testing two models of the foldable smartphone, one with Snapdragon 620 and the other with Snapdragon 820 chipset. Both presumably had 3GB of RAM and microSD card slot, while the release date was assumed to be January 2016 and then changed to later this year. Now we learn that it will be put out next year.

Until next year’s big launches, Samsung is expected to release two variants of the Galaxy Note 6 later this year. The Galaxy Note 6 and Galaxy Note 6 Lite are set to come with 5.8-inch Quad HD screens. The two models would differ in processor and RAM capacity.

Both devices are said to come with Android N, Google’s latest mobile OS, and feature USB Type-C ports, for the first time on Samsung-branded smartphones.
