Samsung Galaxy X Foldable Phone: New Patent Reveals New Details

Will the Galaxy X fold horizontally?

Samsung's President of Mobile Business has said at the CES 2018 that the foldable Galaxy X will be released in 2019. Earlier rumors said that the Galaxy X would launch this year. Samsung is though not quite ready with the foldable smart device. A new patent filed with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) also raises the question about how the Galaxy X will fold.

In the first video of the Samsung foldable phone, the screen unfolded vertical like a book. The new patent focuses on a design that flips up a narrow screen, revealing a very tall screen.

This wallet style smartphone design is enticing and could be more comfortable to keep in pant pockets. The patent has already detailed schematics of the modules in this design. This could mean that these schematics are already pretty close to what the final Galaxy X will look like. The full patent can be found here on Dutch LetsGoDigital.

Korean ET News reports this week that Samsung plans to start mass producing the Galaxy X in November of 2018. The report also claims that the Galaxy X has a 7.3-inch flexible OLED display.
