Samsung Galaxy X Might Be First Foldable Smartphone Screen on Market
New rumors have surfaced that the Samsung Galaxy X will be the first foldable smartphone screen on the market and it could be in consumers hands as early as February.
The Galaxy X is likely a special edition model from Samsung's Galaxy line that will complement the Galaxy regularly scheduled S10, launch around the same time, and feel much like when Apple celebrated their ten-year anniversary with the iPhone X. Except, you know, Samsung will have actually made ten models and this won't permanently screw up the naming convention, but I digress.
The news was first reported by Korean technology news outlet The Bell, explaining that the codenamed phone 'Beyond' will offer the before-mentioned folding screen and a display fingerprint scanner - a lá the Vivo from CES. And to that point, foldable OLED made an appearance at this year's CES in the form of LG's 65-inch folding television. The Galaxy X will, however, adopt 3D facial scanner as well - an answer to Apple's newest tech - and the 3.5-inch OLED will fold out to a staggering 7-inch tablet sized phone.
