Now that the Samsung Galaxy S8 is already official and currently hitting the shelves around the world, eyes are starting to focus on the South Korean conglomerate’s upcoming offerings such as the Note 8 and its foldable phone referred to by many as the Galaxy X. When talking about their possible release schedule, the latest rumors are suggesting that the Galaxy X could be launched ahead of the controversial Note 7′ successor.
Well, actually, the current talk of the tech town is that Samsung may only be preparing to unveil the prototype form of the Galaxy X and it could happen later this year. It’s not surprising as Android Central noted that foldable phones may not see their official market release until the year 2019.
“Because the bezel-free display currently sells well,” Samsung Display’s lead engineer Kim Tae-Woong said, as quoted by The Korea Herald, “we still have enough time to develop foldable display. The technology is expected to be mature around 2019.”
