Support page for the foldable Samsung Galaxy X phone goes live

Samsung's upcoming foldable smartphone, the Galaxy X, was long-rumored to arrive next year. However, a support page for the device with the model number SM-G888N0 recently surfaced in the South Korean tech giant's official website, hinting its imminent release.

Samsung was long-rumored to launch a foldable smartphone. The device in question is the Samsung Galaxy X. Back in September, we saw a Korean certification which revealed that the Galaxy X bears the model number SM-G888N0. Around the same time, Samsung also announced its plans to unveil the first-ever foldable smartphone in 2018, without specifying the month or the quarter in which it could be outed. Apparently, we could get a hint from the latest news that we came across recently.

Without them realizing, Samsung confirmed the existence of the Galaxy X and its imminent release by putting up a support page for the device on its official website. The page was spotted first by the Dutch mobile site Mobiel Kopen. Although the web page revealed nothing apart from the model number SM-G888N0, which is an indication that it is for the Galaxy X, it still gave us a solid basis to believe that the foldable phone is for real. It also suggests that the smartphone is about to drop, maybe in December or January of next year.

Design-wise, the Galaxy X is like a flip phone having two displays of which one of them is flexible. There might be a multi-joint hinge which enables the foldable side to bend into the other. The upcoming handset's specifications are still not yet known. Rumors have it, though, that the Galaxy X will arrive with a Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood. Apparently, we will keep our eyes open for new information regarding the device and we promise to keep you updated. Stay tuned.
