Samsung Galaxy X Foldable Phone Gets Certified in South Korea

Samsung Foldable Smartphone

Foldable Galaxy X phone has been long coming, it was initially expected to arrive before the Samsung S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 but that won’t be the case anymore.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Galaxy X device has been receiving certifications from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi authorities, this time is from a South Korea’s equivalent of FCC.

The model number – SM-G888N0 – pertaining to the Galaxy X Foldable phone was listed on the certification and nothing more than that was revealed. The ‘N0’ suffix on the number reportedly indicates a Korean model.

The South Korean tech giant might be planning to take the widescreen to an extreme, saying from their recent patent drawing. The whole internal side of the foldable phone will be covered in a flexible screen, making it much wider than the 18.5:9 screen ratio we saw on the Galaxy S8.

While there’s currently little or no information on the major specs of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy X device, a particular listing we saw a few months back (with the same model number) revealed a Bluetooth 4.2. However, it is likely that the device will support Bluetooth 5.0 at launch given that the Samsung’s latest flagships support Bluetooth 5.0.

With the way thing are going in the smartphones market, The Galaxy X device might be coming any time around the Christmas or new year holiday period but that is still not yet certain.
