We have heard a lot about Samsung’s foldable smartphone with different reports suggesting different arrival dates. While the exact launch date is still unknown, the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy X has now been spotted on the certification database website for Korean National Radio Research Agency. The listing was first spotted by LetsGoDigital which mentions that the smartphone bears the model number SM-G888.
This is the same model number which has been seen in previous Galaxy X spottings on WiFi and Bluetooth certification websites. The latest spotting is another reason to believe that Samsung is now one step closer to making the world’s first foldable smartphone official. The listing does not reveal anything specific except the fact that launch is expected to happen sooner than later.
The idea of having a foldable smartphone definitely sounds exciting and interesting but its affordability is also something to think about, at least during initial days. It is not hard to guess that Samsung must have spent a good amount of money on the technology and perfecting it to make it usable on daily basis. It should not be surprising if the South Korean tech giant decides to go for a limited number of units during the first year for the purposes of testing the waters.
As mentioned in the beginning, the exact launch date for the Samsung Galaxy X foldable phone is unknown for the time being. But the common speculation is that we might get to see the launch in the early part of the next year, most likely during MWC 2018 in Barcelona. We will be keeping you updated on the phone as and when more information will appear.
