The rumors suggest new folding feature that Samsung filed the patent previously. The touchscreen phone will be able to bend - albeit we are not sure how the hinge mechanism will work on that. And it will not likely be any step backward since it is equipped with a super AMOLED display without any dial pad like the old flip phones.
The Galaxy X - which is widely rumored to be launched in a Galaxy S8 event - is said to have 4K display. Samsung has come up with impressive iris scanner in Galaxy Note 7. Thus, such dramatic features might likely be made available by the South Korean giant.
