Samsung is expected to launch two flagship smartphones next year in the form of Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy X. Both smartphones are touted to carry some radical features, but the Galaxy X is said to be the first foldable smartphone from Samsung. While earlier rumors have suggested Samsung to launch the Galaxy X in MWC 2019 and the Galaxy S10 at CES 2019, a tweet posted by a popular tipster suggests otherwise.
According to Ice Universe’s tweet, Samsung could announce the Galaxy X at CES 2019 and could unveil the Galaxy S10 at MWC, a month after in February. Earlier reports have stated that Samsung has already started developing the foldable OLED screen for the Galaxy X. That added to the rumors about an early announcement, means that Samsung could be shipping the device in the first quarter of 2019.
Previous reports have suggested the Galaxy X to look like a foldable Galaxy Note 8. The phone is expected to feature a 7.5-inch screen, which will fold into a 4.3-inch screen when closed. While other specifications haven’t been revealed, we can expect the device to come with high-end hardware. It’s also being said that Samsung only plans to make 5,00,000 to 2 million units of the Galaxy X and is likely going to price it around $1,850 (approximately Rs 124,000).
