Samsung each year, takes the wraps off at least two flagship line-ups, i.e. Galaxy S series, and Galaxy Note series. Just like every year, the company is expected to introduce both, Galaxy S9, S9 Plus as well as Galaxy Note 9 this year.
While the former is speculated to be introduced sometime in March, with the Galaxy Note 9 following up roughly six months later. What will be different this year is that the South-Korean technology giant might launch a third flagship smartphone. This one is the much-talked-about Galaxy X flagship, which is going to come featuring the unique foldable design.
According to a report published by BGR, Samsung might take the wraps off the device sometime in December. Although, the company – on several occasions – has said that it was “too early” to talk about the handset’s release date. It is being rumored that the firm is facing troubles with the device, and these issues need to be carefully ironed out before the smartphone is launched. That hasn’t necessarily stopped Samsung from demoing the “almost finished” Galaxy X smartphone behind closed doors at the recently-concluded CES, 2018 event.
“Samsung Display said it has developed a 7.3-inch foldable panel with plans to start production later this year,” an industry source was reported by BGR as saying. “Samsung attracted more clients to the private meeting compared to last year. The phone development seems to be almost finished, raising expectations for the phone launch,” the source further added.
Interestingly, all these quotes, reports and speculations suggest that the smartphone has been complete. In other words, the production for the same is expected to begin soon enough. “Production could start as early as November, which echoes a previous rumor from earlier this week, but Samsung could always delay it,” the report adds.
