The Samsung Galaxy X

Thanks to a demo at Samsung's developer conference, we now have a slightly better idea of what the Samsung Galaxy X is going to look like: small and chunky. Unfortunately we couldn't get a hands on with the device, suggesting there's still a bit of work to be done on it.

We know Samsung is going to call the screen the Infinity Flex Display, and it'll make its way into several devices in the future. However, we still don't know the name of the actual phone... it might be the Galaxy X or it might be the Galaxy F... or it might be something else altogether.

As best as we can tell, the front of the Galaxy X has two 4.6-inch screens, which become a 7.29-inch tablet when folded. The rear of the device has a third 3.5-inch screen that allows it to be viewed even when folded down. This indicates that the device will work via a series of intricate hinges. 

Essentially, it's a gadget that can transition between a phone and a tablet, something developers will be able to take advantage of courtesy of Samsung's new One UI software. We're thinking of an official launch announcement at CES 2019 in January or MWC 2019 in February, though it might not go on sale for several months after that.

As for UK prices for the Samsung Galaxy X and prices elsewhere around the world, we're hearing a price of at least $1,400 (£1,112 converted) is on the cards. Being an early adopter has never been cheap.
