Do you feel like entering sci-fiction anywhere soon? For technophile world, there’s a desperate waiting for Samsung to launch its brand new Galaxy S9 and a pioneering folding smartphone, Galaxy X. A new leak about the smartphone’s design has taken us in amazement, and we are all fads about it.
Samsung has since 2013 been around in experimenting with curved screens. Remember the launching of Galaxy Round, and then the reinventing design of Galaxy Note Edge. So we’ve had the first Galaxy smartphone that has a rounded screen way back.
Push the boundaries a mile further, that’s what Samsung’s new folded smartphone is promising to do, as the new leak about the phone shows.
The new patent from Samsung WIPO (World International Property Office) informs us that this time we are going to have a bezel-less and ultra-tech smartphone. Transforming the bent areas into a zero-bezels display, the screen is capable of bending 180 degrees in horizontal and vertical directions. No notch, this smartphone offers a better grip on the device with better features and is particularly targeted for the growing millennials and gaming enthusiasts.
What is great about this design is more than just stunning and new-age looks, as you sure feel when see the leaked picture on LetsGoDigital. This smartphone is supposed to add new functionalities that include top-or-side notifications. Phone users can see notifications from the side/top of the device, wouldn’t that be great? As D J Koh, the Samsung Mobile chief said during an interview, the smartphone production will be over by the year-end and is expected to be launched the next year, 2019.
Besides, getting the 180-degree foldable screen, the new Samsung smartphone will also permit replacement of volume controls with virtual buttons. Similarly, the physical power can be replaced, thus saving a lot of maintenance costs. Of course, the phone is water-resistant, sources say. In comparison to its major competitor, Apple also launched iPhone X that claims superlative bezel reduction. You’d be able to fold the edges of an iPhone X around the display screen. However, this is internally designed, unlike Samsung’s model where the screen can be folded around the edges.
We wouldn’t be surprised if the new Samsung Galaxy smartphone contains a third camera, apart from the regular front- and rear- camera. Samsung is radicalizing this concept of having a folding smartphone by upgrading the ease of use and utility features.
How do we know if there’s a strict time frame when such technology can be made public? Samsung’s unannounced Smartphone is rumored to be launched in the next year’s World Congress Trade Show, but it has already warmed the market speculations. What’s exclusively tipped about this great product is its Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. Perhaps powered by the Exynos 9810 chipset, this folding smartphone will have a universal9810 motherboard.
Not more than a year to wait for the launch of the smartphone, there are three Galaxy S9 models coming for you meanwhile. Redefining the art of design and an unmatched engineering, Samsung’s vision to thrill the users with Galaxy X is soon a reality.
