Remember when flip phones were all the rage? Admit it, you owned (and loved) Motorola's original Razr back in the day. We have collectively move on to bigger and better things, of course, though smartphone makers are still tinkering around with unique form factors.

We've heard plenty of rumors circulating about the Samsung Galaxy X folding smartphone, which was revealed in a patent filing back in late 2016. Last month a new rumor surfaced that claimed the Galaxy X will redefine high-end smartphones in terms of pricing when it launches. That rumor suggested that the Galaxy X could run as much as $1,850 without carrier subsidies. A new rumor is floating around and this one focuses on what type of battery will power the smartphone. The battery, which will be manufactured by Samsung SDI, is tipped to be a giant 6,000 mAh unit that folds. A folding battery makes... Read more...
Apple helped to introduce the smartphone world to more expensive, premium handsets in part, thanks to the launch of the $1,000 iPhone X. Other manufacturers followed right along with Apple and launched their own $1,000 plus flagship devices.

The rumor mill is at full tilt when it comes to the Galaxy S10 and the foldable Galaxy X smartphones that are in the works by Samsung. Way back in February, a leak claimed the Galaxy S10 would rock a Snapdragon 855 SoC and pack a 2Gbps X24 modem. A few days ago, a rumor tipped that Samsung had issued the S10 the codename "Beyond". We've also had more than a few leaks that focus on the folding screen Galaxy X smartphone. Most notable was the leaked support page for the device that turned up in late 2017. Another significant leak has happened, and it gives a bit more alleged information on the Galaxy... Read more...
It's not exactly uncommon for smartphone makers to accidently let slip details on new devices. Samsung has apparently done just this with a support page that was spied on its website for a smartphone model that doesn't yet exist called the SM-G888N0. That support page only lists the model number, but that model number has been associated with the bendable Galaxy X smartphone that we've talked about before. While the support page gives up nothing about the smartphone, it is a confirmation that the device is in the works. Reports indicate that the SM-G888 device has received various certifications...

Will Samsung soon unveil a flexible OLED smartphone? Lately the answer to that question may be as reliable as a Magic 8 ball. One source, however, has leaked that Samsung will likely reveal its dual-screen smartphone prototype sometime in the next few months. The dual-screen smartphone may be a preliminary prototype for Samsung’s supposedly bendable smartphone, the Galaxy X. Recent patents revealed that the the middle of the phone is essentially a hinge that allows the entire device to fold in half. Ideally the Galaxy X would only incorporate one OLED screen. According to an anonymous source, “Samsung... Read more...
