Further, it's looking, it's looking increasingly likely that the Galaxy S10 will the first Samsung's phone to feature an in-screen fingerprint reader after Ice Universe tweeted that the ultrasonic tech won't make it to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

Consider us excited, very excited. The device is expected to be launched as the Galaxy X and according to Samsung's CEO, its flexibility will be more than just a gimmick. There's also that patent for flexible OLED display and a 'fold-out' smartphone design. That was past year and still nothing.

Various smartphone companies are reportedly working on their respective foldable smartphones. Samsung's foldable smartphone could cost around $1850 (2 million won). A foldable smartphone was spotted getting certification while a Samsung Galaxy X support page appeared. Samsung Galaxy X is in rumours since 2013. It hasn't been cast by new iPhones, which always present a problem for Samsung's Note phones since the launches are so close. It's only a matter of time before its official launch.

Samsung is still believed to be the first to release such foldable phones. Everything will be ready by next year.

As smartphones get better, we'll obviously be able to see massive improvements from the camera; 8K video recording capabilities will eventually become a common sight and you'll need faster memory chips to keep up with the read and write speeds. Samsung also is the first to bring curved displays. Samsung may be trying to beat the likes of Huawei to the punch, seeing as the Chinese company has been said to be planning a similar announcement for November. Soon, they "will begin supplying parts to Samsung Electronics" according to an industry analyst. The two inner panels would combine to form a 7.3-inch screen when the device is unfolded, while the outer screen would be 4.5 inches in size. Park says that the phone will have two panels inside and one panel outside. Samsung may be showing off a prototype to mobile carriers in Europe and the USA soon.
