Samsung's unannounced foldable Galaxy X reimagines the flip phone

Also we do not know for sure yet whether AI has got anything to do with it since Samsung's Bixby isn't supposed to be on-board the Galaxy On7 Prime.

Additionally, both smartphones are expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor in the USA, and the newly launched Exynos 9810 SoC in worldwide markets, including India. Samsung may also take a cue from Apple by including a single-lens camera on the standard Galaxy S9 and a dual-lens camera on the Galaxy S9+. They have an internal storage capacity of 64GB, that can be expanded up to 256GB via an external memory card.

The Galaxy On7 Prime isn't technically a new phone but a rehashed version of phones like the Galaxy On Nxt (that has been around since 2016) and the Galaxy J7 Prime. Samsung is also shipping the device with Samsung Pay feature.

The leak suggests that the device will come with a 5.8-inch Infinity Display with quad HD+ resolution which puts an end to hopes of a 4K resolution mobile appearing anytime soon.

These include improved photography, tweaked design and better security. Adding to the features, there would be a 3D sensing facial recognition feature and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for security. Evan Blass, who is very famous and trustworthy leakster on mobile phones and other technology gadgets, has shared a Tweet regarding the launch date of these new phones from Samsung. The tech giant did not unveil the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017 but previous editions have been announced there.

Time will tell if these rumours are true but there's not too long to wait. Samsung used this special mix of metal previously, with their Samsung Notebook 9 (2018). That's a Friday, which is typically the day Samsung releases new phones. Someone pointed out though that the leaked dates could be pertaining to South Korea's time zone, so the launch date in Barcelona could happen on February 25. Are any of you thinking about picking one up? Let us know in the comments.
