Samsung has been preparing to launch its first folding smartphone for a very long time and the Galaxy X will be officially introduced at CES 2019.
Samsung’s folding phone concept is called Galaxy X (or Galaxy F, the name of a smartphone that has been discontinued several years ago). The name F will mean “foldable”, while X is a much more popular trademark.
When folded, Galaxy X still has a portion of the screen always displayed
While Samsung chose what name, this future smartphone will be able to fold, open or even open the screen perpendicular.
While the information on the Galaxy X is very little, these rendered images are based on the patents submitted by Samsung.
Samsung’s folding phone is designed with a hinge in the middle of the body to make the smartphone shrink in half the size. This is reminiscent of Microsoft’s device, the Surface Book.
Because the Galaxy X will not fold in the middle, there will be a section of the screen that always displays and works with the controls. According to these images, the fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the device but it is also possible Samsung will put this security technology under the screen.
On the camera, the Galaxy X is likely to use four lenses, two for the front and two for the back.
According to previous leaks, the Galaxy X has a 7-inch touchscreen or larger when the smartphone is fully open, with a 21: 9 aspect ratio, a resolution of 1,440 x 3,360 pixels.
Samsung’s first folding smartphone will definitely not be aimed at the mass market because its price is rumored at $ 1,850.
