Samsung is circulating in rumors and leaks for the launch of the bendable smartphone likely to be dubbed the Galaxy X. There are claims that this smartphone will be reserved for a 2018 launch.
Lately, we saw the Samsung Galaxy X hit the rumor mills as it received certifications from Bluetooth SIG and South Korea's National Radio Agency carrying the model number SM-G888N0. There are claims that we might witness the launch of the Galaxy X smartphone just before the commencement of the CES 2018 tech show in Las Vegas. The trade show is all set to debut on January 9 and go on till January 12.
The CES showcasing for the Samsung Galaxy X makes sense as the company is speculated to unveil its flagship Galaxy S9 smartphones at the MWC in February 2018. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are likely to be unveiled during the pre-MWC days in Barcelona.
Samsung might not want the Galaxy X to steal the spotlight from the Galaxy S9 flagship duo. So we shouldn't be surprised to see the foldable smartphone launching soon after the commencement of the next year.
Going by the information that has come from Forbes, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy X is said to be a limited edition model with just 100,000 units entering into production. We can expect the whole production quantity to be emptied in South Korea itself. Maybe, there is an increased possibility for Samsung to test the reception of the bendable smartphone in its home market before releasing the same globally. The global rollout of such a smartphone might happen in 2019.
Whatever it is, these are mere speculations and we need to wait for an official confirmation from Samsung regarding the same. We can expect more details regarding the Galaxy X with a bendable form factor to be let out in the coming weeks and months.
