Samsung's foldable Galaxy X to launch at MWC 2019

US Patent and Trademark Office

And unlike previous reports which suggested that the phone with model number SM-8750 could be called Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini, new reports suggest that the device is indeed called Samsung Galaxy S8 Lite. The first smartphone in the popular "J" series, Galaxy J7 Duo with the dual camera (13 MP+5MP) and the 8MP front camera was launched at Rs 16,990 in India in April.

Following the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploding battery fiasco, Samsung will want the Note 9 to really impress and continue the high sales numbers that the Note 8 managed. That is why analysts say whether to pay more money for a new device, if a year ago is technically better. These include the S-Pen stylus.

Note 9 will be highlighted for many features.

The Bell has learned from its sources that Samsung is scheduled to receive components for the foldable phone starting from November this year. Since the phone's key features are its screen size and stylus, expect those to be a major part of that new UX.

Samsung has unveiled it S9 and S9 Plus flagship a couple of months back at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona.

A new Samsung device has appeared on China's TENAA website.

As can be seen from the TENAA images, the device is essentially identical to the company's smaller 2017 flagship, down to the highly-criticized placement of the fingerprint scanner.

The Samsung smart AI assistant is also rumoured to get an update to Bixby 2.0 - what that brings to the phone is unclear.

Earlier this year, speculations indicated that Samsung held a private demo for its partners to showcase a prototype of the Galaxy X. The recent leak seems to support the speculation with some details about the foldable smartphone. Samsung might come with a Crown UX which is used by Samsung to differentiate between other Android devices.
