REPORT: Samsung foldable smartphone to arrive early in 2019
Over the years, we have heard tons of rumors regarding Samsung making a foldable smartphone. Between patent discoveries (such as yesterday's by LetsGoDigital) and increasing speculation of a release, we were bound to receive promising news.
A new report released today by The Wall Street Journal, shed some light on Samsung's highly anticipated foldable smartphone. The device has a code name "Winner" and has been forever rumored to be called the Samsung Galaxy X. It will feature a large 7-inch display that can fold in half similar to a wallet.
In addition, it appears there is going to be a secondary display on the outside when the device is folded in so users would not have to unfold the display every time they want to check notifications. It may be safe to assume that the handset will have a large battery due to the power needed to keep on two displays.
Lastly, the report suggests that the Galaxy X may be released early in 2019 and carry a massive price tag of $1,500. It is very possible Samsung treats the Galaxy X like the Galaxy Note Edge and only have a limited release in select markets. Time will tell.
