Samsung has been trying to innovate its smartphone segment so that they can keep standing out among the rest. Not very long ago, Samsung had hinted us all about a concept phone, when they filed their patents for foldable smartphones. There are many rumors available online that Samsung is already working on its foldable smartphones under the codename “Project Valley” and that the device is named as Galaxy X. Rumors already suggest that the smartphone could be launched in the latter part of this year. So, let’s see how the upcoming Samsung Galaxy X1 might turn out to be in real life.
If we refer to the patent that was filed by Samsung then we can expect the upcoming Samsung Galaxy X to feature with a “secondary” or “flexible” display. The patent states that the secondary display activates when the user folds the smartphone along a set axis. The patent clearly shows the bendable section that has been provided in the middle of the projected prototype. Users are expected to fold the smartphones like flip phones using the bendable section. The patent also states that a physical home button shall also be provided on the phone upon which we might expect to see the fingerprint scanner. Also, the volume and power buttons can be expected on the right edge of the phone. It is believed that the phone shall feature a 4K OLED capacitive touchscreen that would provide a very screen resolution. The 4K display would easily provide an amazing display to the phone. The best part about using the 4K screen is the fact that they get really bright and so sunlight legibility remains impressive. The 4K display will ensure an exceptional viewing experience with great sunlight legibility. Overall, the phone is set to rock the smartphone markets along with its counterpart, the Galaxy X plus.
Right now, we have no info as to what kind of processor would be provided in the upcoming phone. However, one thing is for sure that the processor would be of high end Exynos or a Qualcomm. To be able to back a 4K display and a huge number of rumored sensors, one can easily expect the best configuration to be provided in the phone. It is rumored that the phone would feature latest Android v7.0 i.e. Nougat. Right now there is no information is to what kind of internal storage would be provided in the phone. However, it is believed that the phone shall feature 6GB of RAM allowing the phone to keep working seamlessly. Right now we are not sure if the phone would be supporting dual SIMs. However, the phone definitely will support 4G/LTE networks.
Currently there is no intimation as to what kind of cameras would be provided in the phone. Few sites suggest that a 16MP rear camera and 8MP front camera would be provided in the phone, however, many reports suggest that even better cameras could be expected in the phone. Be whatever the case, the camera would definitely support feature like Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus. Shooting modes shall include Continuous Shooting and High Dynamic Range mode (HDR). 4K HD video recording is also expected to be done by the camera. A loudspeaker and a 3.5 mm jack with active noise cancellation and dedicated mic is also expected to be provided with the phone.
It is believed that the phone will feature a non-removable battery. It is also rumored that the battery will support quick charging. Currently, we have no information regarding the exact specifications that would be provided for the battery. As far as connectivity options are concerned, the phone is expected to feature with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth v4.2, A2DP, LE, A-GPS, GLONASS/ BDS (region dependent), NFC, Stereo FM radio with RDS; recording and USB Type-C 1.0 reversible connector. The other sensors that are expected in the phone are Fingerprint (front-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity and compass. Now talking about other sensors that are rumored to be provided in the phone, it is believed that the phone would utilize various other biometric forms of sensors that would include face and palm apart from fingers.
