Foldable Galaxy X: Further Details
A recent report on Samsung's foldable phone suggests two codenames, Galaxy X1 and X1 Plus, as the upcoming new flagships. The information was initially founded in Weibo, a Chinese micro-blogging platform often becomes the go-to place when looking for accurate leaks. The post reveals two model numbers, Sm-X9000 and SM-X9050, running Android Marshmallow OS.
This may not make sense since Samsung could have pre-installed the latest Nougat instead of Android 6.0.1 but it is probably safe to assume that the said handset is still a prototype. Android Soul has come to believe that Galaxy X1 and X1 Plus are currently under testing in China.
