The foldable display smartphone from Samsung is most likely going to be unveiled this year, and according to a trademark, the device is going to be named Galaxy X. It is not a unique approach assuming the model name of the phone turns out to be true, but some names carry a lot of weightage when you want to differentiate a specific product from the rest of the pack.

Samsung Has Filed for the Trademark Galaxy X – Could Be Announced in Either the Third or Fourth Quarter of This Year

An image detailing the name of the upcoming foldable smartphone has allegedly been leaked and according to GalaxyClub, the name of the unique smartphone could be named Galaxy X. A phone that is different from the rest of the flagships does not come as a surprise that it will be named Galaxy X, but we still do not have any clue about the hardware running inside it. What we’re assuming is that the device could be packing Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 chipset manufactured on the 10nm FinFET architecture.

With foldable displays getting showcased at trade shows, it was only a matter of time before they got reduced in size to the point where they could be used on smartphones and tablets. Galaxy X is rumored to feature a book-like form factor, with the foldable display being flexible enough to turn into an actual book. The Super AMOLED display technology could be retained, giving a variation of colors that you often see on the company’s flagship smartphones.

One of the reasons why Samsung might limit itself to releasing just two devices (the second one has been rumored to be released next year) is because it is possible the company wants to see what sort of response the market gives when Galaxy X is officially released. Keep in mind that consumers aren’t too friendly towards products that present something completely different to the table and one great example is the LG G5.

Sometimes, the only thing great about a high-end device is how the company did not choose to take a gamble over how different it is going to be from the competition.
