The Folding Samsung Galaxy X May Come Before the S10, Not After

  • Do note that the Rs 7,990 price tag refers to the 64GB variant of the smaller Galaxy S9

The Galaxy S9 has some great Android alternatives out there - ironically, a lot of them are iPhone X clones. The device might make it to the market in March 2019.

IBTimes previously reported that Samsung is preparing to launch its Galaxy X foldable phone at CES 2019 in January and its Galaxy S10 flagship handset at MWC 2019 in February. It's possible the mid-sized Galaxy S10 could also come with the "super wide-angle" lens instead of the telephoto lens seen on the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9. The S9 has reportedly sold the lowest of any Galaxy phone since the S3 released back in 2012.

While the chip business would post its seventh consecutive record quarterly profit, analysts say, lacklustre smartphone earnings growth fuelled concerns the mobile business is running out of ideas to underpin sales of its premium Galaxy devices.

The Korean electronics giant said Thursday that it expects to record an operating profit of 14.8 trillion Korean won ($13.2 billion) for the three-month period ended June 30, an increase of 5 percent over the year-ago-period.


Samsung, Apple and Huawei are rumored to be working on foldable smartphones.

The company is slated to begin a pilot manufacturing run of flexible OLED screens; Korean outlet ET News reports that these could be incorporated into what's being called the Galaxy X phone, which will go into production next year. Apple's iPhone X isn't selling as great as Apple expected, but it's still making a boatload of cash for Apple.

The Galaxy X launch has been postponed for a few years, but it looks like it will finally be hitting the market next year.

The iPhone X's weaker performance also affects Samsung's bottom line, as its Display division is the sole provider of those expensive iPhone X OLED panels.
