Samsung's long rumored "Galaxy X" foldable phone gets certified

Foldable Samsung Galaxy smartphone receives certification in South Korea; expected to release in 2019

The new claim first broke out in China, suggesting that it is the end of the Bixby button being a premium feature for Samsung's smartphones. Samsung Mobile's own chief acknowledged on Apple's iPhone X day that Samsung is indeed working on foldable devices, teasing that the Galaxy Note 9 will have such a display. Also, the model number of the foldable Samsung Galaxy X is SM-G888N0. The same model has also been certified for Wi-Fi by the Wi-Fi Alliance, and has passed through the National Radio Research Agency, which is Korea's version of the US FCC.

Samsung usually unveils three flagship handsets in a year: the Galaxy S- series smartphones and the Galaxy Note handsets. SamMobile had reported a year ago that the Galaxy X display would have a "diamond PenTile subpixel arrangement". The company announced about the Samsung Shop Anniversary Sale on Monday, September 25 and declared that the sale will continue till September 30. In any case in South Korea since, for the moment, no certification has been given in the United States or in Europe. Back in July, the same device was granted Bluetooth certification by the Bluetooth SIG.

We've heard the Galaxy X moniker earlier this year, in connection with Samsung's foldable phone plans.

"[Samsung] is in the middle of developing several types of chips that will be capable of processing massive data from AI applications on devices, eliminating the need to communicate with cloud servers", a source from one of Samsung's partners told The Korea Herald.

Although, in 2014, Samsung did release a truly cringe-worthy video about a flexible phone and tablet concept.

A tight outcome could weigh on the currency on Monday, as could results that foreshadow a change in government, analysts say. Nearly immediately Labour's "Let's do this" slogan was pilloried by National in "Let's tax this" attack ads.

If the bendable Galaxy X is real and destined for a 2018 launch, we could see it as soon as Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in late-February.

Not much is known about the Galaxy X, except that it will have a foldable screen. "When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product.", Koh Dong-jin stated.
