Galaxy X is expected to be unveiled at CES 2019
According to a statement by Kim Jang-Yeol, Head of Research, Golden Bridge Investment, the next flagship smartphone from Samsung will hit the market with a price tag of more than $1800. At this price, Galaxy X will easily be the most expensive smartphone that will go way past the likes of iPhone X and Red Hydrogen One Phone. Earlier reports suggested the price to spring up to $2500. So in that case, the tag of $1850 seems justified.
As per the speculations till now, the foldable smartphone is expected to be named as Galaxy X and will come with a foldable 7.3-inch flexible OLED screen. If the rumors turn out to be true, then it will be the first ever device to be embedded with a foldable display. Also, the concept of the foldable screen will thoroughly revolutionize the very concept of the smartphone.
With reports of private gathering at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Samsung is reportedly showcased several prototypes of the Galaxy X to absorb the public response towards their new offering. This report clearly highlights the Samsung’s desperation to excel with its next flagship device. Because if we see at the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus sales figure, they are not that impressive. Moreover, the immense success of iPhone X has also impacted Samsung's future plans.
The Korea Times also reported that the Galaxy X would be a 4.5-inch device when folded, and after its unfolding, it will toss up a massive 7.3-inch OLED display. This also gives us a clue about two OLED screens in the device and if true, the price will skyrocket undeniably.
Other than that, Galaxy X is expected to come packed with state of the art Exynos 9810 or Snapdragon 845 CPU, coupled with a minimum 6GB of RAM.
With different reports pouring in about Galaxy X, we can at least expect something breathtaking from Samsung. If accepted, the new device can also replace the laptop with its massive foldable screen. Though its still time for the launch of the Galaxy X but, Samsung might have to look into the price factor, as it may hamper its sales. Samsung is expected to roll out Galaxy X in the CES 2019.
