Samsung already hinted to bring its first ever foldable smartphone in 2018. This project is said to be codenamed as Project Valley and we have seen several leaks about this in the past couple of years. The recent rumors hinted this new smartphone to be launched under the popular Galaxy Note series. There are also other leaks mentioning this device to be named as Galaxy X or Galaxy X1. However, the support page of a new smartphone with the model number SM-G888N0 is now listed on the company’s official website.
Apart from the model number, there is no other information about the device from the support page. According to the latest reports, the SM-G888N0 is the upcoming foldable/bendable smartphone from Samsung and the company might showcase it at the upcoming CES 2018. On the other hand, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are expected to be unveiled ahead of the MWC 2018. The application of the SM-G888N0 was earlier spotted at South Korea’s National Radio Agency. It also received the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certifications in South Korea.
Interestingly, the certifications revealed the device to be running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and support Bluetooth 4.1. With the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus launched earlier this year, Samsung even introduced the new Bluetooth 5.0 technology. Instead of a complete bendable display, the upcoming Galaxy X is said to feature two displays out of which one will be flexible. However, we don’t think Samsung will be using two standard display with a hinge in the middle. The Axon M smartphone from ZTE came with dual display and there is a noticeable hinge between both the display.
With the Galaxy X, we might see displays with even more advanced technology. Even Lenovo is working a bendable smartphone and a foldable tablet. It even demoed both these devices during the Lenovo Tech World event held in July this year. Take these details with a pinch of salt and wait for the official confirmation.
