While it is still not clear if Samsung is going to release any foldable phones in 2018 or 2019, sleek 3D renders of a rumored Galaxy X model make an appearance in the wild, depicting a device with 1 external display and 2 other internal ones. The Smartphone can open up and act as a laptop powered by a light version of Windows 10, just like Microsoft's Surface Phone.

Rumors about the foldable phone that Samsung could be launching in 2019 are getting confusing lately. Some claim that there will definitely be a foldable phone from Samsung, others say that the Galaxy S10 will most likely not integrate any foldable technology, meaning that the foldable phone may actually be a Note model. The guys over at Android Leo went ahead and rendered all the rumored features in a sleek 3D model of a Samsung Galaxy X phone that comes with 3 displays (1 external, two internal).

The design is very reminiscent of previously proposed designs for the Surface Phone from Microsoft. On the outside, the Galaxy X sports a bezel-less 6.4-inch UHD display that does not seem to include a selfie cam. On the inside, there are two other QHD 6.5-inch displays that unfold and act as a screen and keyboard in laptop mode. When in phone mode, the device would be running Android, while in laptop mode the Galaxy X would be switching to a light version of Windows 10. The SoC powering this device would be an Exynos 9820 coupled with 8 GB DDR4 and 256 GB storage. The back would feature a 16 MP + 12 MP camera setup with 3D capabilities and the phone wold also integrate a 4,500 mAh battery.

According to the latest leaks, the foldable phone is most likely priced higher than the iPhone X, so the expected price is somewhere around US$1,170. This model is scheduled to be released in early 2019.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
