Samsung’s upcoming foldable smartphone has become the talk of the hour and the company is expected to announce the launch of the smartphone named Galaxy X next year at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019. The price of the phone is predicted to be as high as KRW 2 million which is approximately Rs.1,25,000.
The report highlights that the smartphone brand is targeting a late February or early March release date, which is a clear hint that the device could be launched during MWC 2019.

The technology enables the phone OS to respond according to the pressure level. Along with this, the phone will most probably will come with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845.
The smartphone company has been working on the Galaxy X for years and the company is making proress on the manufacturing of the phone. According to the reports, the manufacturing will start in November. It is being anticipated that Samsung will manufacture the Galaxy X in a limited amount initially so that it can check the demand of the device.
