Samsung fans are waiting eagerly for its next-gen flagship, Galaxy S9, but the tech giant is working on another smartphone that might be a hit.
The follow-up to the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is expected to launch somewhere in the first quarter of 2018.
Both smartphones are rumoured to sport a dual-curved display, like their predecessor.
The Galaxy S9 is also expected to sport a dual camera set-up, which Samsung first debuted with the Note 8.
It’s also been rumoured that the Galaxy S9 could have a 3D depth-sensing front camera to enable facial recognition.
That sounds a bit familiar, it’s probably because of the Apple’s recent flagship, iPhone X features front-facing 3D depth-sensor.
All these advanced technologies mean the upcoming devices will set you back higher than the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
But for those who don’t want spend much on their new phone, there’s a good news.
It seems like one of the flagship features of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ is going to be featured on a mid-range phone.
The ever-reliable SamMobile has revealed that the company is working on to bring Infinity Display to its Galaxy A range.
The leak came after SamMobile found the specs for the 2018 Galaxy A5 online.
Among those specs listed on the HTML5 Test website is the 18:5:9 aspect ratio display for the 2018 Galaxy A. And the same aspect ratio appeared on the Galaxy Note 8, which also features an Infinity Display.
Well, while changing the direction at this moment seems unlikely, the latest addition to the Galaxy A lineups of smartphones is expected to launch early next year.
So fans won’t have long to wait to get confirmation on whether the Infinity Display is coming to the mid-range phone line-up or not.
Well, there’s is also a rumour about another phone, Galaxy X, which is expected to launch early next year. The device is said to bring a unique feature with it: the capability to fold.
This device will give users a chance to work on big screens without worrying about its size as it will fit perfectly into the pockets.
There are scant details about the Galaxy X, however, Samsung’s president of mobile, Koh Dong-jin, has revealed that the ‘Folding Phone’ is real.
Speaking to Bloomberg, the smartphone boss said: “For sure we will launch the product.
“As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year,
“When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product.”
