And although this Galaxy X leak once again indicates that Samsung is working hard on developing its foldable smartphone, the specifications and features of the device are far from clear. Samsung has refrained from releasing any explicit information about the smartphone, other than the fact that the screen is foldable, while it has also neglected to respond to any reports or leaks pertaining to the device.
In fact, the Galaxy X may not be released in 2018 whatsoever, and if it does appear then we can expect it to be released shortly before the key Christmas window. Naturally, producing a smartphone with a rumored 7.3-inch foldable display is challenging, even though Samsung has had the technology available for some years now.
Renders of the forthcoming smartphone from the Korean corporation indicate that the Android device will benefit from a heart rate monitor. Dutch website LetsGoDigital spotted sketches of the Galaxy X foldable phone that were released by the World Intellectual Property Organization; considered to be a particularly credible source.
A new Galaxy X leak has provided an intriguing insight into the potential makeup of the forthcoming foldable smartphone. With the handset set to be revealed before the end of 2018, sketches of the device have been leaked online, and have provided critical information on some of the features to be included in this innovative handset.
Should the Galaxy X leak indicate that the smartphone is released in 2018, it will undoubtedly be an extremely busy year for Samsung. Not only will the Korean Corporation be overseeing its first ever foldable handset, but it will also have to produce a Galaxy S line that responds to the hugely popular iPhone X from Apple, and deliver a Galaxy Note 9 that is still sufficiently different from its Galaxy S flagship in order to attract consumers.
It is certainly a difficult proposition for Samsung to produce three premium smartphones, crammed with the sort of specs that we expect from the Korean corporation’s products, and also sufficiently differentiate them from one another. Whether this can be achieved in 2018 remains to be seen, but what is certain is that it should be an exciting twelve months for Android and Samsung followers.
So does this Galaxy X leak mean that the device will be a health-centric mobile? Possibly. This is certainly something that Apple has attempted to deliver with the Apple Watch, and thus it would arguably makes sense for Samsung to attempt to offer something similar, even though it has its own wearable device as well.
Despite this latest Galaxy X leak having whet the appetites of some of the biggest Samsung and Android fans, we should not expect the smartphone to release in the particularly near future. Samsung has already conceded that it has experienced significant logistical difficulties with the Galaxy X, meaning that its emergence will be postponed.
