Flexible and foldable phones are coming into existence very soon. And it’s pretty clear the Samsung company is the first company to produce such. With its emergence of the ever-unique phone, the Samsung Galaxy X.
The smartphone promises a lot, which I’ll be pointing out, as you follow this article. Do you know that this particular foldable idea came into existence seven years ago? Oh! Yes, I bet you didn’t know. But, its finally coming out this year.
There were contemplations on whether the phone would be foldable inward or outward? Well, the Samsung Galaxy X would be folding inward when its finally released. I’ll show you how the flexibility would be working for its users, its possible features, as there are so many leaked rumors on this amazing phone.
And you can say that we are entering into a foldable future. Adding to that, you’ll get to know how Samsung made it this far, as it took seven years for this phone to come into reality. And of course, it would be launched this year. Like I stated earlier, Samsung is the first to commercially launch the foldable phone.
The Past Seven Years for Samsung Galaxy X
Like I stated earlier, the idea of a foldable phone isn’t new at all to Samsung. Its date back to 2011, seven years ago. At that time, it wasn’t a commercial product, the device wasn’t looking appealing, it was a bit chunky and weird. Although, the phone was still intact even after 100,000 folds and other actions that took place with it.
As in that same year, the Samsung company launched a concept video of fully flexible and see-through device, that could fold out from a phone-sized screen to that of a tablet. This actually shows Samsung’s ambition for the technology.
