Samsung is all set to unveil the new Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus smartphones next month, and we can’t wait since it is one of the most anticipated devices for this year. While we wait for that happen, the company filed a trademark for ‘Galaxy X‘ moniker just recently, which may indicate that the smartphone is not too far from launch. There is no info about the launch of this particular smartphone, however, it is expected that the company will be launching this smartphone this year itself.
According to the reports, the trademark was filed at KIPRIS which stands for Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service, however, there is no other info about the smartphones other than that. We do have a couple of rumors from the past which tells us more about the smartphones. Judging by the rumors, it looks like we will be seeing two new variants of this alleged new smartphone out of which one is called the Galaxy X1 and the other one is called the Galaxy X1+ and will have model numbers SM-X9000 & SM-X9050 respectively.
As far as the specs are concerned, it is suggested that the Galaxy X1 would be coming with a 5″ foldable screen with a support for the 4K resolution. With the help of the fold out mechanism, users will be able to use it as a 7″ tablet as well. and the rumors also suggest that it will have biometric sensors for fingerprint, iris, etc. The only thing which remains to be is if we will be getting s fold out display or a fold-in display. It looks like we see a fold out display, that way users won’t have to unfold every single time if they want to check the notification.
Judging by the reports, this smartphone should take no longer and should be released in the 2nd quarter of this year. And the fact that now we have a trademark in place for this smartphone, makes us want to believe that we should be seeing it in reality anytime by the end of this year. But it will be interesting to see how this will be accepted in the market since it won’t be the most practical smartphone to be used. With that said, let us know what do you think about this particular smartphone. Would you be interested in buying one if they ever decide to bring it to India and if yes, at what price would you be picking it up. Be sure to let us know in the comment section below and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for info on this.
