Samsung Galaxy X prototypes secretly revealed at CES ahead of 2019 launch?

Samsung showcased several prototypes of its first foldable smartphone – the oft-rumoured Galaxy X – at a private gathering at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, according to a new report.

The firm invited a small sub-set of attendees to check out the Galaxy X at CES 2018, so it could gauge market response to the several different designs it’s toying with, an anonymous source told The Investor.

The same source also revealed that Samsung confirmed to spectators that it has decided on a 7.3-inch ‘infolding’ screen and is planning to start manufacturing the Galaxy X in November 2018, lining the unit up for an early-2019 reveal – possibly at MWC.

What that essentially means is that the Galaxy X will be equipped with a flexible display that can unfold to form a medium-sized tablet – though we won’t know whether that’s actually the case until Samsung’s ready to give us a peek.

“Samsung attracted more clients to the private meeting compared to last year,” another source said in a statement issued to The Investor. “The phone development seems to be almost finished, raising expectations for the launch.”

Samsung highlighted a number of other products at the Consumer Electronics Show, including the mid-range Galaxy A8 (2018), the updated Family Hub refrigerator and a slew of new high-end QLED Smart TVs.
