Samsung trademarks the Galaxy X: could this be the foldable phone?

Samsung trademarks the Galaxy X: could this be the foldable phone?
We've been hearing that Samsung is working on a foldable phone or tablet for a couple of years now. The company has even presented the concept in some videos, suggesting how it might work. We've seen numerous patents of various ideas on how to build a foldable phone, and the names Galaxy Wing and Galaxy X have been thrown around a lot, suggesting that's how the first-ever paper-like phone would be named.

Well, Samsung has just filed for trademark over at KIPRIS (Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service) for the Galaxy X brand. This comes just months after we heard that the foldable phone is still on track, despite the unfortunate fate of the Note 7, and after some rumors suggested that we might see the first-gen product come at the end of 2017, or the first half of 2018.

So, it appears that the Galaxy X name might just be the one assigned to Sammy's first papyrus phone. On the scale of 1 to “take my money now”, how excited are you for this?

@ liberalsnowflake It will explode in sales and you will still be poor and you won't be able to afford it.
