The folded Samsung smartphone was supposed to appear behind closed doors at CES 2018. Meanwhile, new patents reveal the possible appearance of this awaited device on the graphics.

Samsung Galaxy X may or may not be a folding smartphone of Koreans. Some time ago it turned out that under this name a completely different model can be hidden. Nevertheless, in the past, we have suggested that this is how the first consumer model of a folding smartphone will be named. If you believe in recent rumors, it's possible that the folded smartphone will appear under a different name. At least this would be a sensible move on the part of the Koreans, because X is too much associated with the iPhone X. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/795464/samsung-skladany-smartfon-przekatna-ekranu-data-premiery/ During this year's CES 2018, Samsung boasted that such a smartphone arises. Unfortunately, its premiere will not take place this year. Earlier rumor indicated that the mass production of the new model would start in November 2018. The smartphone would have an in- fold, 7.3-inch OLED display . Another unofficial information indicates that the prototype of such a device was shown to VIP guests at CES 2018 behind closed doors. As if that was not enough, we have a new patent for folding Samsung smartphone, which was submitted on June 14, 2017. It was published in WIPO. It contains much more details (also in English) than the previous ones. We also have accurate sketches that may suggest the final appearance of the upcoming Korean device.

The patent discloses that the foldable smartphone would consist of two parts connected to each other by means of a rotary hinge. The device has one display, and under it is a sliding plate that slides in or out during folding and unfolding. This device would obtain an integrated rear and front camera. There would be a LED lighting diode, a light sensor, a proximity sensor, an infrared / ultrasonic sensor and an LED indicator that would inform the user about the condition of the device. I am also talking about a heart monitor, a loudspeaker on the top, and a microphone on the bottom. These are standard items that are found in smartphones. The battery itself would be integrated with the lower housing part. It also seems that Samsung intends to prepare the entire range of products with folded displays (smartphones / tablets). Perhaps the discussed phablet will be the first element of the new portfolio of the company, which will be refreshed in 2019.
