This past summer, it almost seemed like the rumored Samsung Galaxy X would finally be revealed by the company, as the brand showcased a foldable phone with a flexible screen several times, leading fans to dub the mystery device “Galaxy X.”
But now,the word’s out that Samsung is going to delay its foldable or flexible phone till 2019. Apparently it’s not ready for 2018 prime time, that’s the reason and technology is not there yet. A concept that started since 2011, the new foldable design was reported to release in late 2017 with a 4K display but sources then indicated that Samsung may only have a prototype ready by then, as supply chain sources were even less optimistic of the phone’s official debut before mid-2018.
Here have got the concept, rendered by Gadgets Arena. It’s a bit curvier…
The handset is known as the Samsung Galaxy X Curved 2019 and it features a very curved body, but not in the way you expect. It’s as if a massive force pushed it from behind and generated this concave format. Ergonomics may be a bit off, since the edges may feel a bit sharp in your hands. At least the camera won’t sit flat on a surface and it won’t drag on a glass table
The big problem here is that having such a design involves a curved glass panel or two, plus other curved components too: battery, memory and more. Or you can simply use smaller versions of them stuffed within the slim chassis. At least there’s a dual camera here, in keeping with the trends, a dual one at the back and a dual one at the front. It’s highly likely that this will be Samsung’s most expansive model as well.
