Are you a Samsung person like me? We all have been in some discussion which usually ends up with iPhone users being upset…well here is something that will make them not put their phones on top of the table again!

Samsung has been working for years on a smartphone that you can fold, effectively melding the old days of flip phones with today’s technology.

Samsung has already done everything the X is doing. Despite Apple claiming they’re changing the smartphone world, Samsung has already gone miles ahead. The Samsung X already has facial recognition technology, already has OLED screens, glass bodies and wireless charging. TheSamsung X is intended as a statement that will literally change the game.

While little specifics are known for the phone, it has already been registered in Korea and has passed bluetooth and radio certification – which are both crucial steps required for the sale of smartphones.

We also know it’s destined for a 2018 release, but beyond that Samsung has kept leaks to a minimum. Will this be the device of the future? It remains to be seen… but Samsung is gunning for Apple like never before and we can’t wait to find out more about the upcoming Samsung X.
