The Samsung Galaxy X has been the topic of intrigue among people for a while now. And while the phone was initially supposed to be revealed sometime in 2017, Samsung postponed that to 2018 and now it seems that even this year may not be the one. But if present rumors are to be believed, the Korean media website The Bell has reported that a prototype of the phone was shown in an extremely secret meet at CES 2018. Now, the company may finalize the design by June this year and the phone may be unveiled as part of a pilot program next year.

The Galaxy X or Wing, whatever its speculative name is, apparently features three OLED screens, each measuring 3.5 inches. With two screens one the inside of the display and one outside, the phone borrows the format of a typical flip phone from the yesteryears. This also means that the users will not need to flip open the phone all the time to use it.

PhoneArena reports that the Samsung Galaxy X will probably be an “in-folding” design that will have a form factor that is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and not a tablet as was previously expected. What the final product will end up being is anyone’s guess right now, though.

Samsung apparently plans to only make between 500,000 to 2 million units initially to test how the market reacts to it. And if rumors are to believed, the tech juggernaut has already intimated some parts suppliers about the plans and road map for its bendable Galaxy X.
