Latest Patents Surface Revealing Samsung Galaxy X With Trifold Design; Specs and Release Date Detailed
The South Korean based tech company Samsung has attempted to create folding smartphones using sci-fi esque ideas. Samsung Display is developing more advanced flexible OLED technologies to make a premium smartphone in a small-scale production at probably a very large price.
According to Forbes, the latest post from a Korean site The Bell just recently surfaced online. It indicates the surprisingly early release of the Galaxy Note 9 and the company’s plans to push things for the Galaxy S10 and all-new foldable Galaxy X.
In terms of specification, the post specified that the Galaxy S10 will come with the 3D facial scanner, which will be a rival to FaceID on the current iPhone X. The device will also have the in-display fingerprint reader, which is widely anticipated to be seen in the Galaxy Note 9 as well.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy X is rumored to flaunt no less than three 3.5-inch OLED displays, which is capable to fold out creating a massive (almost tablet-sized) smartphone. As compact as it can be, the device can also fold down making it far smaller than most current smartphones.
The tri-fold design of the Galaxy X could look like the trifold wallets that can be folded into itself. The users could open up a single fold or section to blurt out only a third of the display panel, which is very useful in checking notifications or messages. The design could also support viewing content like in a hybrid tent mode. The two of the sections could be folded into a triangular shape showing a single section of the display panel when used upright.
The planned release dates of the Galaxy S10 were supposed to be as early as January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 and the Galaxy X in February on the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event. Samsung is expected to make announcements just before or just after since they are fond of having the floor to itself.
