For several years now, Samsung has displayed a phone with a foldable plastic case. Now it is getting closer to consumers when it is certified in Korea.
Samsung’s curved phone is rumoured to be called the Galaxy X (but it does not mean number 10 like the iPhone X). Many technology experts predict that it will be launched in 2018.
Recently, Mr Koh Dong-jin, CEO of Samsung’s mobile division, has confirmed the presence of the Galaxy X. The phone has recently been approved by the National Agency for Radio Frequency (NRA) South Korea’s certification.
The NRA-certified phone code is SM-G888N0, the same code as the Bluetooth-certified smartphone in July. This means that the Galaxy X launch date will not be far off. It is expected to be released before the end of this year.
The Galaxy X was originally developed under the codename Project Valley, and we wondered if Samsung wanted to rename the phone to match the iPhone X. We are looking forward to the Galaxy X launch as this could be a very formidable competitor to Apple’s flagship model that will hit store shelves on Nov. 3.
