Potential Galaxy X user interface detailed in patent

The world of smartphone rumours suggests that Samsung will start the year pretty early with its Galaxy S9 flagship by the end of January and we already have a fair bit of idea about the chipset that will power the Galaxy S9. "In that case, it will be similar to the one we find on the Galaxy S8 Active", SamMobile reported late on Thursday. An unreleased Samsung phone with the model number SM-J337 has appeared on GFXBench and its key specifications have been revealed.

The worldwide unlocked variant of the Galaxy A5, with model number SM-A530F, will have a 412 x 846 screen and run on Android 7.1.1, stated the report. The display is expected to feature an FHD+ resolution 2160 x 1080 pixels, making it in part with the other premium smartphones.

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) is expected to be powered by Exynos 7885 Octa-core SoC, paired with 4 GB LPDDR4 RAM and 64 GB onboard flash storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot (up to 256 GB). Unfortunately, the statement doesn't reveal everything there is to know about the new chipset, but it reveals enough for us to find out that it is a powerful one. The tipster claims that there is a mysterious compact phone from Samsung that features an Infinity Display of less than 5-inches. As yet there are no details on what sort of camera the handset will feature.

Whether or not Samsung is actually able to launch a foldable phone next year, thanks to a filing on Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service website, we have got the first look at a possible design of the phone as well as what could turn out to the user interface of this phone. Previously, we've seen a number of markets, including the USA and China, receive Sammy phones powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets.

Samsung has publicly discussed the possibility of a 2018 launch for a bendable phone, so hopefully we see these concepts in a physical device sooner rather than later.
