Samsung Galaxy X Release Slated At MWC 2019, Foldable OLED Display Mass Production To Start In Summer
The Samsung Galaxy X is expected to make its first appearance during the Mobile World Congress (2019). Though the event is still far, it is believed that Samsung will start the mass production of foldable OLED display in summer.
According to Tech2, the South Korean tech company is already preparing for the manufacturing of the foldable OLED panels. Though it’s not yet known as to what these foldable OLED panels will be used for, there were reports suggesting that these are for the Samsung Galaxy X. It is also worth noting that the report mentions reliable sources, thus these details may be accurate.
Moreover, the report also suggests that these panels would not be the standard foldable units that can be seen on Galaxy S9 and iPhone X. The displays of the alleged Samsung Galaxy X can actually be bent around corners making it possible to fold the device into the half.
But then, Samsung has recognized that folding the display into half creates a usability problem since the display isn’t visible when the device is closed. Samsung’s resolution is to go with a display that can be folded only by about two-thirds wherein the part that’s exposed will show details like the phone number of a called, time and others. This will also point to a whole software redesign, so the Samsung fans can expect a drastic change in UI Experience.
Based on some previously leaked patents, the folding bit of the Samsung Galaxy X display will be held by a hinge. This indicates that the display doesn’t change form, but it can simply bend contingent on the chassis of the handset. The folding design is anticipated to be released by early 2019 based on the same report.
Undoubtedly, the folding displays will really be a trend for the coming year since numerous other brands like Microsoft, Huawei, Nokia, and Apple are seemingly working on a foldable handset. As of this moment, these are the recent details available about the Samsung Galaxy X. Always stay tuned for future information about Samsung upcoming foldable handset.
