Foldable Samsung Galaxy X gets Bluetooth certification
by Alan Friedman / Jul 29, 2017, 12:16 PM
In addition, the model number was previously seen receiving it's Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. At the time, the device was running Android 6.0.1. The Bluetooth SIG revealed that the SM-G888N0 was carrying Bluetooth 4.2 at the time of its certification. Considering that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ are rockin' Bluetooth 5.0, it would seem strange for a premium device like the Galaxy X to feature the previous generation of Bluetooth technology. In other words, if the phone certified by both the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth SIG is the Samsung Galaxy X, the specs will no doubt be upgraded before the unit is introduced.
Samsung is rumored to be prepping the Galaxy X for an introduction sometime between the third quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018. Back in January, it seemed like 2018 was a good guess for when the Galaxy X would see the light of day. The latest speculation is that the "bendable" phone won't be flexible at all and instead will be made up of two different panels connected by a hinge.
Last week, Lenovo put a name on its foldable tablet concept, which is now called the Lenovo Folio. The device, which increases from a tablet with a 5.5-inch display to one with a 7.8-inch screen and vice versa, has appeared two years in a row at Lenovo's Tech World show.

Who cares about who does it first. I only care about who implements it best. I think this is cool but I need to see how it will benefit me before I buy into the hype.

This will probably be my first tablet. I definitely need one. Had LCD burnout on my Note 4 & S7E, ultimately resulting in them getting swapped out with refurbs. With a tablet I'll be able to use it when I get home & use my phone throughout the day.

The one thing that I dislike about oled and it still happens a lot for what it seems... The S7 is a fairly recent device so having burn ins in that one is unacceptable... I will stick with LCD IPS for a while longer.

Maybe it's the world's way of saying hey or your phone and go do something productive. I've had my S7 Edge for a little over a year with no trace of burn in. The only phones I've seen with burn ins are the displays at Best Buy since they run continuously for all day and night with settings turned all the way up

U had screen born in on a Galaxy Note 4 and S7? I still have an S3 and S4 whixh are much older and dont have any. I think you're lying. But son with it. There is no way a one year old S7 woukd have such unless you had it on all day 24/7/365. I know you're lying.

You're right, I'm lying. I forgot you live with me & saw both of the devices that I had. At first I thought the way you communicated on here was just typos. Nope. You're just an imbecile. BOTH my Note 4 & S7E had LCD burn in. On a white screen you could see it very clearly. The top of the screen where the notification bar is would be normal & rest of the screen would be a faint white/pinkish color. But again, I forgot you live with me & saw both phones. What would I have to gain by lying? Dumbass!

Phone arena won't like it or call it revolutionary until apple copy the concept 5 years down the line Remember how they hated amoled and praised LCD screens.. Lol let's see what happens now apple are adopting amoled That's just one example out of many I can list of the biasness of this site towards apple

Yeah, the sad reality is they'll almost certainly call Samsung copycats when Apple starts stealing this idea, too. The must recent example is their brainwashed reactions to wireless headphone developments. RDF runs deep in a "news" business where income is driven by manufacturer gifts.
