The Samsung Galaxy X on the other hand, will flaunt a foldable 4K screen with diamond PenTile subpixel arrangement. Rumours indicate that the phone in question will easily be foldable in half, like a wallet. No other details regarding the Galaxy X are available at the moment.

 Samsung will launch a device next year which can be a 5 inch smartphone when folded and turns into a 7-inch tablet when opened. A foldable smartphone essentially means the screen can be bent in half by using OLED display. It is not clear as of now how exactly the folding technology is going to work. Samsung had first mentioned the possibility of the foldable smartphones under Project Valley, following which there were a couple of patents had surfaced showing how dual display handset will be able to open and close in different configuration with the use of hinges.
