Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners in Europe, a little bit more of stretching your patience would be rewarded by the presence of an Android 7.0 Nougat update this coming January 17, 2017. Unlike many previous Samsung foldable phone concepts, however, the speculated device's display would appear on the outside (as seen in the Lenovo prototype above) rather than the inside of the body.
The rumours come from a report from The Korea Herald, but before you think the idea of a transforming smartphone is insane, it's not the first time we've heard the rumour.
Samsung's had a rough 2016, with over a hundred instances of the Galaxy Note 7 exploding, and the smartphone being banned from carrying it on an aircraft which has caused catastrophic damage to the brands reputation across the globe.More news: Jamie Foxx Addresses Rumors He Was Beat Up In LA
The new smartphones have allegedly leaked online, and it clearly indicates that the smartphones will have foldable displays. These two smartphones are under testing in China. The post reveals two model numbers, Sm-X9000 and SM-X9050, running Android Marshmallow OS.
It has been reported that Samsung has been planning to hold an event in March or early April to officially unveil the Galaxy S8 and S8 edge/Plus to the world at an event in New York City. It has meticulously chosen a period of release not to coincide with any other flagship device like Galaxy S8 or iPhone 8. The device, sometimes referred to as the "Galaxy X", will have a limited run of about 100,000 units.
The main thing is that the display is likely to be OLED, Samsung revealed its rollable OLED display tech at SID a year ago - so there's little doubt about that. The LED flash on the back side is not visible either, which is a bit worrisome since that element is very useful to case makers, which must streamline their accessories according to the specs received from smartphone companies. The leak comes from Twitter user @mmddj_china, and shows that the phones will indeed feature quite a sleek design.
