Are you dreaming of having a foldable smartphone? Well, Samsung Galaxy X might just be the answer to your dreams and apparently, the South Korean company has already begun teasing users with respect to this device.
Samsung has proved to be an innovative company when it comes to display screens. It has revolutionized the smartphone screen with the emergence of curved displays and as it seems, the company wants to have this taken to the next level. If rumors are to be believed, we’ll soon be having a Samsung Galaxy X that can be folded into half. These rumors have now turned into something slightly tangible as leaked photos have begun surfacing showing how exactly the first foldable smartphone will look like.
It has often been claimed that OLED panels are better than LCD panels thanks to their ability to take different form factors with ease. Samsung wants to show the world how this is possible, but this is something that will have to wait until next year or even 2018. As of now, it has emerged that the rumored Samsung Galaxy X will feature a 5.7-inch screen size with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. Also, reports claim that the phone will just be 0.3mm thick and when you roll it up, you remain with just 10mm radius with respect to the screen tube.
We have reached a point where the prototypes that have been doing rounds showcasing how OLED panels can be folded, rolled and even deformed without causing any damage to the device are now becoming real. The question that somehow begs answers is how we’ll be able to fold a Samsung Galaxy X with the battery or circuit board inside unable to fold or bend. Maybe Samsung has plans to come in with a new design that will accommodate these changes.
If anything, the new foldable screen technology has more questions than answers. Nevertheless, Samsung will be making a huge step towards totally differentiating its products from the many that are currently available on the market at the moment.
Hopefully, we’ll get some more details of what Samsung Galaxy X will be like at the SID 2016 event that begins today.
