Interestingly, the most leaked foldable phone right now is the Surface Phone, not the Galaxy X somehow. That doesn’t mean we have forgotten about Samsung’s upcoming experimental device. The Samsung Galaxy X has just received a video and set of renders from Techconfigurations and some of their aesthetic choices actually make sense.
The device is much slimmer than your typical dual display handset and comes with a dual back camera. The back side texture takes me back to the Galaxy Note 4 and its leather-like approach, which I’m not a very big fan of. What I am a fan of is the way the two screens hook up to create a singular display. Each portion of the phone is slim in itself and the whole thing, in folded mode is also not very thick.
There’s also a laptop mode, at 120% fold and tablet mode in unfolded mode. I can’t exactly tell how they make the hinge/seam disappear, but it may involve an concave portion of the second screen going over the hinge. Premium leather and kevlar are used here for extra resilience, plus a 7500 mAh battery and 6 GB of RAM, as well as the latest Exynos CPU.
This is finally a dual display phone design that actually makes sense.
