We’ve already heard a lot of rumors about the Samsung foldable smartphone over the years. Enough circumstantial evidence has surfaced in the past months to suggest that one might be launched next year. A listing for the handset has now been spotted on Samsung’s own website.
The device is commonly referred to as the Galaxy X. Previous reports suggest that the foldable Samsung smartphone bears model number SM-G888N0. The same is now listed on Samsung’s official website for South Korea.

We’ve previously spotted the SM-G888N0 at the Bluetooth SIG for its Bluetooth certification. It was also spotted at South Korea’s National Radio Research Agency which suggested that the handset will also be launched in Samsung’s home market.
There aren’t a lot of details available on this device right now. We did spot a firmware for the SM-G888N0 so Samsung is certainly cooking up something. This model number does not correspond to any other device in Samsung’s lineup which is why it’s linked to the Galaxy X.
It’s unclear when Samsung is planning to launch its foldable handset. The company hasn’t said anything about it so far. However, a patent application from Samsung might have revealed the user interface of its foldable smartphone.
Some suggest that Samsung is going to unveil its first foldable smartphone at CES 2018 in January. We’ll have to wait and see if that happens.
