There is a new trademark that hints at the possibility that Samsung’s foldable smartphone might make entry into the market with the moniker Galaxy X. The smartphone giant had been working on foldable smartphones for a while now, and it seems that they are finally going to be available for commercial use by the end of the year.
A Twitter user spotted the trademark. He shared a screenshot that included an image containing the Galaxy X branding promo. It may, however, be stated that all of this can be fake at this point.

There had been reports earlier that pointed to the possibility of Samsung along with Samsung Display introducing foldable smartphones to a select audience at the MWC 2017. It was supposed to be a private show in a separate room to get feedback from those present. That feedback would further be used by Samsung to predict the demand for foldable smartphones in the market.
Details state that Samsung will introduce both inward folding (like a book) and outward folding products. It can be believed that the reason Samsung is showcasing the foldable product to other companies might be because it plans to sell the display and technology to other handset manufacturers.
The foldable smartphones are expected to make an entrance later this year. Samsung will begin the production of foldable smartphones with AMOLED display in the fourth quarter of 2017.
