New concept images reveal what Samsung's foldable phone could look like. Here's what we know about the Galaxy X, which could cost an incredible $1850 when it is announced in January 2019.

Samsung is working on a phone with a foldable screen, known as the Galaxy X. It is said that the phone will be announced at CES in January 2019, and will be on show at MWC at the end of February.

Galaxy X folding phone teased as Samsung shows off Infinity Flexible Display and One UI. Find out more about the bending smartphone.

Samsung's highly anticipated foldable-screen phone, known as the Galaxy X, has finally been teased at a developer conference.

Although Samsung's foldable phone is a little way off yet, the firm has teased it for the first time at a developer conference, although it was shown off with the lights dimmed to hide the design. Unveiling the Infinity Flex Display, Samsung said it has "paved the way for a breakthrough foldable smartphone form factor."

Now it's been shown in the flesh, we know that the foldable phone will have a tablet sized screen that can be folded in half to fit in a pocket. The 7.3in main display with use Samsung's new One UI and be able to run three apps at the same time.

"The app experience seamlessly transitions from the smaller display to the larger display as the device unfolds. In addition, users can browse, watch, connect and multitask without losing a beat, simultaneously using three active apps on the larger display," said Samsung.

New concept renders published on nieuwemobiel.nl also give us an idea of what the foldable phone could look like, while we know from the recent launch of the Note 9 that up to 512GB of storage, 8GB of RAM and an S Pen stylus with Bluetooth support are all possibilities. We could also see the same camera tech appear in the Galaxy X, a 12Mp dual-lens model with an AI Scene Optimiser mode and Flaw Detection.

When is the Samsung Galaxy X release date?
Last Update:10/November/2018>>>
The wait for the Galaxy X foldable phone goes on as although it was possible it would be announced on 11 October at Samsung's 4X event, this turned out to be for the Galaxy A9 with is four cameras.

It seems the device is likely to launch in 2019 with Samsung stating it will start mass production of the Infinity Flex Display in a “matter of months”, according to The Verge. So it's possible we could see a proper announcement at CES in January.


The Galaxy X has already passed certification and there was an oops moment when it recently popped up on Samsung's support site, suggesting it is nearing completion.
<<<Last Update:10/November/2018

Samsung told investors in January 2018 that the foldable Galaxy X would launch this year. However, reports from Korea now suggest it will be shown off at CES in January 2019.

The Galaxy X was reportedly shown to insiders back at January 2018's CES show, and has already passed certification and popped up on Samsung's support site, suggesting it is nearing completion.

The bad news is that Samsung’s quirky folding phone might be tough to bag, with Forbes stating that “the expectation for the Galaxy X is as a limited-run device in a single territory - more than likely the home territory of South Korea”.

What is the Galaxy X price?
If rumours on the Galaxy X pricing are true, we have no trouble believing it will be a rare handset. Samsung's foldable phone is expected to cost as much as $1850.

That's around £1400, but it's unlikely we'll pay that in the UK. Usually pound and dollar prices are more or less the same, so we could be looking at a smartphone that's just a couple hundred pounds cheaper than buying two iPhone Xs.

Is the foldable Samsung phone called the Galaxy X?
As you can tell from this article, it's widely thought that the upcoming foldable phone from Samsung will be the Galaxy X.

Galaxy X or Galaxy F?
However, Twitter user @MMDDJ_ who has a good track record with phone leaks, suggests that it will actually be named the Galaxy F instead. 'F' for foldable?

They also tweeted about Galaxy R and Galaxy P phones that will reportedly be produced outside of Samsung's factory.

What are the rumoured specifications for the Galaxy X?
The Samsung Galaxy X was originally rumoured to be a 5in phone that could fold out into an 8in tablet, but it’s now suspected to fold out into a 7in tablet. It’s indeed possible that there will actually be two Samsung foldable phones released.

According to rumours the screen resolution is expected to be 4K (3840x2160 pixels), ensuring that it remains high-res when folded.

A press release from Samsung touting an unbreakable panel could be used for the Galaxy X. Samsung Display has developed the "flexible OLED panel with an unbreakable substrate and an overlay window securely adhered to it".

The firm said that it will be used on smartphones along with "display consoles for automobiles, mobile military devices, portable game consoles and tablet PCs for e-learning".

The Galaxy X could also feature a dual-camera at the rear, one of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processors - most likely now the Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810- and at least 6GB of RAM. There should be a microSD card slot, but the battery will not be removable.

Other specs are likely to follow that which we've seen in the recently announced Note 9, such as up to 512GB of storage, 8GB of RAM and an S Pen stylus with Bluetooth support. We could also see the same camera tech, a 12Mp dual-lens model with an AI Scene Optimiser mode and Flaw Detection.

A patent application filed by Samsung in late 2016 shows some renders of what the eventual Galaxy X may look like (via Sammobile):

What is a foldable phone?
A foldable phone is exactly as it sounds, one that either folds inward (like a clamshell phone) or outward and reveals a tablet-like device when stretched out. This is possible with the use of a bendable (rather than flexible, as seen in the Galaxy S7 edge) OLED panel.

Samsung, Lenovo and LG have each showed off bendable displays and devices at various industry events, and have registered many patents for the technology. Previously called Project Valley, Samsung’s technology has become known as the Samsung Galaxy X, which may or may not be its eventual name upon release.

Samsung originally worked on fold-in phones, which close up like a wallet, but having completed its work there it has moved on to fold-out phones. These should be more convenient for the user, who wouldn’t need to unfold the phone every time they wanted to use it.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.
