Samsung traditionally launches its Galaxy S flagship at the MWC 2018 in February and its Galaxy Note flagship in August at a Galaxy Unpacked event. 2019 will be a bit different though, since there’s a third flagship phone it has to unveil – the Galaxy X.
The Galaxy X is supposed to be Samsung’s foldable smartphone. The company has already confirmed that it’s coming, but hasn’t specified when. Frequent tipster Ice Universe has now chimed in with a tweet about the device.
Samsung Galaxy X Launch
According to him, the Galaxy X is going to make its grand entrance at the CES 2019. This year’s CES is kicking off on January 8. Interestingly enough, an early prototype of the foldable handset reportedly got shown off at the CES 2018 to a small group of people behind closed doors.
It looks like the device is making a comeback at the same event, only this time it’ll be out in the open. Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy S10 will soon follow in its footsteps at the MWC 2019 which is starting from February 25 next year.
An earlier rumor had alleged a completely different timeline. The Galaxy S10 was due to appear in January and the Galaxy X in February. We’re not sure which is right at the moment. Production for the latter only began recently, so it’s unclear if everything will be ready in time.
Gathering all the evidence together, it looks like the Galaxy X will have a 7.3-inch screen when unfolded and a 4.5-inch one when folded. Samsung SDI is said to be working on a flexible battery for it which will range from 3000mAh to 6000mAh.
The Galaxy S10 won’t flex, but it might have an under-display fingerprint scanner and triple cameras for the Plus variant.
