There were many rumours swirling around once the iPhone X became official that the tech giant Samsung will unveil a Galaxy X soon. And that rumours appear to be true. Samsung may launch the Galaxy X sooner than we would have estimated, a new report appears to indicate. But Samsung won’t just copy the rival’s latest flagship’s name and notch.
We came across the Galaxy X name earlier this year, in connection with Samsung’s foldable handset aims. Some of these reports stated the company will launch the Galaxy X this year, and release it in a limited fashion to observe consumer interest in such a design. But also because it’s indeed a challenge to make such a phone.
Then reports claimed the phone will be delayed until 2018, as the flagship of this year: Galaxy S8 turned out to be a great seller. Samsung Mobile’s own chief admitted on Apple’s iPhone X day that Samsung is indeed working on foldable devices, teasing that the Galaxy Note 9 will have such a display.
More than a week later, just as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus put up on sale in the market, the Galaxy X was found in South Korea’s National Radio Research Agency’s database.
First seen by Dutch-language Let’s Go Digital. The listing contains a phone model number we saw previously. SM-G888N0 was linked with Samsung’s foldable device in past rumours.
The listing doesn’t disclose any further information about the device, but it does mention a September 21st, 2017 date. Is that any hint towards a rollout. We are not certain about any of this. However, it’d be unexpected to see the tech giant launch the device in the coming months because we haven’t come across any further leaks. And Samsung is not one of those tight-lipped companies, even if it wants to be. Many leaks and rumours emerge as the handsets near its arrival day.
Up til now, the G888 has got Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certifications, which is only to be expected from any phone that has such wireless facilities. The fact that the NRRA approved the handset indicates that the Galaxy X is approved for the local market.
