Samsung Galaxy S9 To Take On iPhone X's Face ID

Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung kept demoing foldable mobile devices for years at tech trade shows, but it never was ready to launch one - the Galaxy Round doesn't count as one, don't even try! A support page for the foldable phone came online this Monday, as reported by the folks over at LetsGoDigital earlier today. The support page does not give us any more details regarding the specifications of this revolutionary device, but it does indicate an official introduction will follow soon.

While a possible launch date nears for the Galaxy X, reports are also emerging thick and fast of what will and won't feature in the upcoming Galaxy S9.

The Samsung Galaxy S9, the next flagship smartphone for the company after this year's Galaxy Note 8, might not be able to dethrone Apple's iPhone X, according to leaked benchmark results.

Flexible display: The Samsung Galaxy X is expected to have a foldable display. Dutch site MobielKopen revealed that the SM-G888 had already received a few certifications from regulators including the Bluetooth SIG, Wi-Fi Alliance, and South Korea's own National Radio Research Agency. The company has been going toe to toe with Apple by unveiling features such as an edge to edge display on its devices.

Samsung said it has not yet decided whether the new version of the Galaxy S8 will reach overseas markets.

Samsung Galaxy X has been making noise long before iPhone X rumour even began in late 2016. Samsung is simply speeding up the process for its existing hardware.

Riding on a wave of rumors that started straight from Samsung's mouth last September, we now apparently have further confirmation that the Samsung Galaxy X is indeed a thing.

Apple's iPhone X notch - as it's unofficially called - contains a set of sensors that create a technology Apple calls TrueDepth.

Android Oreo: If the device is launched in the first half of 2018, it will likely have Android Oreo out of the box, and get a future Android update by the end of the year.
