The NRRA has a vague description for it, listed as only "radio equipment for global LTE communication", but it was specifically described as a smartphone at an earlier appearance at the WiFi Alliance, according to Forbes.
The long-awaited smartphone with a foldable display has now been certified in Samsung's home market, South Korea.
Foldable Galaxy X phone has been long coming, it was initially expected to arrive before the Samsung S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 but that won't be the case anymore. Going by the model number Samsung SM-G888N0, the device has just received its certification from the National Radio Research Agency (NRRA) based in South Korea.
Moving away from the flagship range to the mid-range smartphones, Samsung Galaxy On Max is available at Rs. 15,900, Rs. 1,000 discount from usual price of Rs. 16,900, as part of the sale. Is that an indication that Samsung is accelerating the Galaxy X rollout? Samsung may unveil the Galaxy X sooner than we would have thought, a new report appears to indicate.
Naturally the Galaxy X, and likewise the Galaxy Note 9, will be something of a testbed - a proof of concept, nearly - with the really clever and insane stuff coming later.
The rumor mill claims Samsung could offer us a glimpse of the device at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 in Las Vegas.
The first protocol of flexible display, confirming that a "foldable" phone is possible, was showcased in 2013 by Samsung. We also do not know much about the name, but "Galaxy X" seems to be the popular consensus as of now. Indeed, after the debut of the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung mobile division head DJ Koh has been quoted to say that the foldable phone would make an appearance next year. However, he added that the new display technology was facing technical challenges that, if not resolved in time, could push back its arrival.
After Apple's iPhone X, Samsung is now rumoured to bring its own "Samsung X" smartphone next year. Now, whether it is final one or no we aren't sure.
