One of the popular rumors making its rounds in the past couple of years is that Samsung could have a foldable smartphone in the works called the Galaxy X. We know that Samsung is working on foldable displays and they have shown off prototypes in the past, but whether or not this will result in a foldable smartphone still remains to be seen.

However it looks like we could be inching closer towards that being a reality, thanks to a recent sighting at the Bluetooth SIG which has certified a mysterious Samsung handset that has led to speculation that this could be the Galaxy X that we have been hearing about. This is because the handset in question sports the model number SM-G888N0 which does not correspond to any existing Samsung device.

This means that this phone could be a brand new model, as opposed to being refreshes of existing lineups. It has been pointed out that this model has also been previously spotted at the WiFi Alliance where it was similarly certified. However there are some doubts about this phone because it uses Bluetooth 4.2 and at that time it was WiFi certified, it was running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

For a supposedly hi-tech phone, these are some old specs. It is possible that it was simply a prototype and that the final version will run the latest build of Android and Bluetooth 5.0, but for some it is just speculation so try not to get your hopes up. We have heard that the phone could be unveiled in Q3 2017, but some are suggesting early 2018, so do take it with a grain of salt for now.
