Samsung Galaxy X could be powered by a foldable 6000mAh battery

The heavily tipped Samsung Galaxy X could feature a folding battery with a 6000mAh capacity, according to a new report.

The rumoured handset, which is widely expected to launch this year, is said to feature a flexible screen that would allow you to use it as either a smartphone or a tablet.

And according to ITHome, industry sources say it will run on a foldable battery built by Samsung SDI, which will have a capacity somewhere between 3,000mAh and 6,000mAh.

Samsung SDI managed to build a foldable battery four years ago, but that only had a 210mAh capacity. Fortunately, the subsidiary is said to be getting close to developing one that could realistically power a smartphone.

The Galaxy X has been rumoured for some time, but recent reports point towards a 2018 launch, followed by a 2019 release.

It’s said to be equipped with a 7.3-inch flexible OLED screen that can unfold to form a medium-sized tablet, and it should also come with an Exynos 9810/Snapdragon 845 CPU and at least 6GB of RAM.

Unfortunately, it could retail for more than $1800 when it hits the shelves, according to a recent prediction by Kim Jang-Yeol, the head of research at Golden Bridge Investment.
