It's been quite a journey for Samsung as patent images for the foldable smartphone concept have been sighted.

So, as many would have wanted, the device is not going to have a single flexible display.

Samsung's plan to launch a Galaxy phone with a foldable display this year may still happen as several reports that point to the possibility of the technology being ready. The device is expected to be launched as the Galaxy X and according to Samsung's CEO, its flexibility will be more than just a gimmick.

That is because when we reported about the Galaxy S10 for the first time, it was rumored that the upcoming flagship would be the first from Samsung to provide support for LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage.

Samsung, however, has also been working on this idea, with the company reportedly showing off a prototype device at CES earlier this year.

Ice Universe on Twitter has mentioned that Samsung will start production of LPDDR5 and UFS 3.0 chips starting from the second half of this year. Samsung gave no official comments on the phone.

While the claims made by the analysts are believable, we've heard so many rumors about the Galaxy X over the years it's always worth taking things with a pinch of salt as firm details are still hard to come by. It may be the first but Samsung better hurry up because other OEMs are also working on similar technologies.

Samsung's Exynos variants are typically released in Europe, with Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor set to power its US-bound version. The a year ago Apple flagship is available at $999, and even ZTE Axon M foldable smartphone stands nowhere near that price. When unfolded, two of inside panels combine to form a 7.3-inch panel. Folded, it will be 4.5-inches.

Elsewhere, the Korean report debunks speculation that the Galaxy S10 will feature the foldable AMOLED screen that we've heard so much about, and instead claims that Samsung will stick to same curved Infinity displays found on this year's S9 and S9+.
