Samsung is always talked about because of the many innovative features that they introduce in their gadgets. It was in 2013 when the company unveiled flexible display technology, and this is said to come in fruition with the anticipated Galaxy X.

Rumors about the flexible display technology kept on reappearing with tech analysts forecasting what device it will be used for. Samsung may have finally decided to use the technology in the Samsung Galaxy X, based on the patent file that was apparently spotted on Jan. 31.

The most talked about detail of the patent is the foldable display, of course. The device is said to have a mechanical design that allows the gadget to be folded inwards using a hinge located in the middle. Interestingly, the hinge is also used as a display.

When the hinge is stretched, two displays will merge and show a single 7-inch display screen. This means that the Samsung Galaxy X can be used as a tablet and a handset.

The device, according to the patent file, will come with a 10-nm processor since it would have three screens. This would need a more powerful processor so the 10-nm type just suits one's needs. The Samsung Galaxy X may also come with 6 GB of RAM, which is a great leap from the usual 4 GB RAM of the company's current flagship models.

Samsung is known to have competitive camera specs and so the Galaxy X is expected to offer the same. The device is said to come with dual rear camera technology. It has 12 megapixels like the Galaxy S8, but it will be combined with another 13-megapixel secondary sensor to achieve improved depth of field when taking pictures.

As for the price, it is said to be above $1,000 due to its foldable features. The device is expected to be released in the latter part of the year.
