Samsung foldable phone with massive curved battery rumoured

New monthly data released on Thursday by mobile phone market tracker Counterpoint Research highlighted Samsung's problems, showing its latest Galaxy 9 Plus premium handset had been overtaken by Apple Inc's iPhone 8 as the world's top-selling smartphone due to weak sales in Europe. The rumor contradicts previous reports that had said the Galaxy S10 will precede the Galaxy X's arrival. This likely means that the foldable smartphone's unveiling, which has been delayed for a few years, will finally happen soon.

Either way, we're months away from anything happening on a Galaxy S10 front, so these plans may get scrapped and we may ultimately see just two models early next year. Samsung originally promised the folding Galaxy X would arrive before the end of 2018, but following a delay rumours expected it to be unveiled sometime in February.

The Galaxy X launch has been postponed for a few years, but it looks like it will finally be hitting the market next year. All three phones will feature fingerprint sensors located under the display or on the sides, that report said.

The close announcement dates for the Galaxy X and Galaxy S10 should not be a problem for Samsung.

During its recent earnings report, Samsung revealed that it has made around $13.2 billion in operating profit from a gross revenue of $51.8 billion.

Ice Universe, another prominent insider who often leaks accurate information on Twitter, has reignited the rumor by offering up some specs.

Another company we expect to see make smartphone announcements in September is Sony, though we've long since given up trying to second-guess its naming conventions for upcoming phones.
