Later in the year, Samsung is said to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy Note 7 edge. Aside from new iterations in the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note line-ups, the manufacturer is also expected to introduce the Samsung Galaxy X, its first smartphone with a bendable display.
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 7, as well as their curved-screen variants, are all said to come with QHD Super AMOLED displays with an RGB subpixel arrangement. The Samsung Galaxy X, on the other hand, is rumored to adopt a 4K display with a PenTile subpixel arrangement.
Speaking of the Galaxy X, this handset was often rumored in the past under the Samsung Project Valley codename and is expected to come with a screen that bends in half, a feat that would allow users to easily pocket the device when not in use.Naturally, we’re very interested in learning more about the Samsung Galaxy X. Seeing as the transition to bendable smartphone displays is likely to open the door to a new era in smartphone form factors, the Galaxy X could well be one of the most important smartphones of the past few years. Unfortunately, however, details surrounding the Project Valley handset are still pretty scarce at this point and do not go beyond Samsung patents describing possible foldable smartphone designs.
