Samsung typically hosts a launch event for new smartphones in the first quarter of each year, showcasing the handsets at Barcelona's annual Mobile World Congress tech tradeshow.
One of Samsung's devices with model number SM-G888N0, has been spotted on the Korean National Radio Research Agency (NRRA). Whereas, other smartphones like the Galaxy On7 and Galaxy On5 Pro are now available at Rs 6,590 and Rs 6,490. A January launch date just seems to be flawless for the foldable Samsung Galaxy X. Back in 2013, Samsung presented its idea of flexible, bendable and rollable screens at CES 2013. The phone has also received Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi Alliance certification from the same NRRA before this. Further, the last two alphabets - "NO" is believed to denote its exclusivity to South Korea, at least for the moment. With the latest festive offer, Samsung fans can grab Android flagship Galaxy S8 or the S8 + (4GB RAM) for as low as Rs. 53,900 (against MRP: Rs. 57,900) or Rs. 60,900 (against MRP: 64,900). Over the years it earned an unofficial nickname, "Galaxy X", but no concrete details have emerged except for a wonky concept video.
Previously unearthed patent drawings show the Galaxy X design with a huge and wide touch display which folds out from a clamshell design. It'd be surprising to see Samsung unveil the phone in the coming months because we haven't seen any leaks.
Not much is known about the Galaxy X, except that it will have a foldable screen. He also admitted that perfecting the technology was a formidable challenge and unresolved technical issues could cause the release to be delayed. "When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product", Koh had said.
