Samsung's foldable phone will feature multiple 3.5-inch OLED screens and will be unveiled at MWC?
With the Samsung Galaxy S10 now rumored to hit the light of day at CES 2019, there is now talk that Samsung's eagerly awaited foldable phone will be unveiled the following month in Barcelona at MWC 2019. Yes, it is hard to look ahead at events planned for next winter, just as the weather is turning warm in the U.S. The foldable phone has been dubbed the Samsung Galaxy X, and carries the codename of "Winner." Previously, the device had a development codename of "Valley." This change is an indication that the device has gone from a long term development project, to having a slot in the manufacturer's 2019 lineup.

Samsung reportedly brought the Galaxy X to CES this year. The device seen in Vegas is believed to have featured a fold-in design with three 3.5-inch OLED panels; one screen is on the outside of the phone with two on the inside. When the two inside screens are open, it creates a larger 6-inch to 7-inch screen. The display outside the phone is used to interact with the handset when the device is closed.

Considering the use of 3.5-inch OLED displays, as a point of reference the Apple iPhone featured a 3.5-inch screen until the 4-inch iPhone 5 was unveiled in 2013. Keep in mind that the model Samsung allegedly showed to its partners in Vegas may have nothing to do with the final version of the phone. Earlier this week, Samsung received a patent for a foldable phone that folded-in and contained two screens inside. A special hinge uses a sensor to contort the device into pre-set configurations.
