Seems like Samsung is working on a new foldable smartphone as an unannounced Samsung smartphone with model number SM-G888N0 has now got the Bluetooth certification from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). As per reports, the leaked smartphone is dubbed as Samsung Galaxy X. Earlier in April also, Samsung Galaxy X also received WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA). In March, Samsung filed the trademark application for the Galaxy X at the KIPRIS (Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information).
Sadly, the listing does not reveal anything about the hardware specifications of the smartphone. The listing only reveals that the phone has received Bluetooth certification with version 4.2. This seems a bit strange as Samsung’s recent flagships like the Galaxy S8 have support for Bluetooth 5.0 so it is not expected for the company to ship its first foldable smartphone with an outdated standard. In the earlier Wifi listing, it was revealed that Samsung Galaxy X will come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.
As per the rumors, the Galaxy X sports a 5-inch display that folds out into a 7-inch tablet. It might also feature a 4K AMOLED display that folds in half and could be expected to release anytime between the third quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of next year.
