We’ve heard of Samsung’s revolutionary smartphone which is supposedly going to be a foldable one. The company has confirmed that it is working on a device with an innovative design at CES 2018. Rumour had it that the device was going to be called the Galaxy X. However, there was never any evidence apart from speculation to validate the name of the smartphone. Well, later the Galaxy X appeared as a device for train personnel in South Korea. But, that’s not all, a Korean source says that the company will be renaming its iconic Galaxy S series to the Galaxy X series from 2019.
Well, things will remain same for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. However, in 2019 we might see a change to the Galaxy X instead of the Galaxy S10. Considering this, it only seems fitting that Samsung should rename the device. The naming may even work in favour of the company as renaming it to the Galaxy X will help it go head to head against the iPhone X. If Samsung does go down this route, it’s still unsure as to how they would proceed with naming the device after the Galaxy X, if there is one, of course!
The only rational answer to this is probably naming it the Galaxy XI or Galaxy X1 and so on. All of this should be taken with a grain of salt and the source hasn’t been verified. On a brighter note, we are edging closer and closer to the release of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, what could be the last of the so-called ‘Galaxy S’ series.
Yeah, Sammy. X marks the spot!
Reaching that "X" took a while and it will take. Still at least more than a year to go.
And I fail to understand how it will be able to take on the iPhone X. Just being "X" is sufficient?
