Samsung Likely to Unveil Foldable Smartphones in Q3 2017

Samsung has chosen to stay considerably tight-lipped regarding when these smartphones will hit the market but there is a high probability that the tech giants will announce the devices at the MWC 2017 event in February.

A new report from Samsung has dished out that the smartphone company is planning to sell 20 million Galaxy A handsets in the year 2017.

Samsung's upcoming foldable phones, most likely to be called the Galaxy X1 and Galaxy X1 Plus having been doing rounds on the internet quite regularly for one reason or the other.

Move over iPhone 7; Samsung Galaxy S8 is here with their very own in-ear wireless headphones.

The information has supposedly been leaked by "a person briefed on the matter", but again there have been no official declarations made on the news. It also says the model numbers of those two smartphones. The phones are in test in China.

So far, a number of third-party device makers have confirmed they will be bringing Android Nougat to their handsets soon.

It looks like Samsung is prepping follow-ups to last year's Galaxy C5 and C7 series. The manufacturer is known for hosting Unpacked events in NY to unveil its latest Galaxy Note device, with with the Galaxy Note 7 being announced at the Hammerstein Ballroom and the Galaxy Note 5 being announced at Lincoln Center. And while most specifications will be shared between the two, including an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front camera, there will be some differences. Another foldable model with a single flexible OLED display may be scheduled for a 2018 release. The phone will have a 6-inch screen.

The main thing is that the display is likely to be OLED, Samsung revealed its rollable OLED display tech at SID past year - so there's little doubt about that.

Only last week at CES, the chief operating officer Tim Baxter insisted the tech giant was undeterred by the events of the a year ago and "will not, nor will we stop innovating". Currently, it is working on the fold-out technology since it regarded folding and unfolding a phone every time one needs to access it as inconvenient.
