Samsung Galaxy X expected to hit CES 2018 with pressure sensitive display

Samsung Galaxy X

If rumors are to be believed, Samsung Galaxy X is expected to ship with a flexible pressure sensitive display. The company is expected to announce the features and specifications during the CES 2018 including the capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S9 series. According to a new patent filed by Samsung, the upcoming Galaxy X will be manufactured using a flexible material. The idea is that the smartphone will bend when force is applied.

The patent listing further reveals the fact that the amount of force applied on the display will be monitored by the integrated pressure sensitive display. Interestingly, the same pressure technology feature was spotted on Apple iPhone 6s under the code name 3D Touch.

Based on rumors, the Samsung Galaxy X will also ship with a unique hinge to establish connectivity between the two screens. It is this hinge, which enables the device to close. According to LetsGoDigital, the Galaxy X will be thinner when compared to the likes of the ZTE Axon M.

There are reports that Samsung is planning to implement screen protection even when the device is not in use or when the display is completely closed. Moreover, the sensor rumored to ship with the handset will accurately calculate the angle between the first and second screen. The intention of this sensor is to find out when the screen should be switched off, which will ultimately save the battery life.

The patent listing also provides a rough idea about the dual displays with the location of the camera and speaker grills. Industry analysts are not ruling out a possibility of a third camera paired with a speaker on the rear side. Like in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, we also expect the addition of a pressure sensitive stylus.
