While Samsung did confirm that it is working on a foldable smartphone, the company isn’t willing the reveal the launch date just yet. Word on the street is that the Galaxy X might feature a 7.3-inch OLED screen that can be opened to transform into a tablet. Previously Samsung had shown two versions of the Galaxy X behind closed doors at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last month. The smartphone is rumoured to launch towards the end of 2018, or early next year. Samsung isn’t the only company working on foldable smartphones. LG, Huawei, and ZTE are reportedly working on smartphones with bendable displays.
Koh also confirmed that a Bixby-powered smart speaker will be launching later this year. He had previously confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that the speaker would arrive in the second-half of the year. Samsung’s first Bixby-powered smart speaker will compete against Apple’s recently launched HomePod and Google HomeMax.
