Samsung has been working for years on a smartphone that you can fold, effectively melding the old days of flip phones with today's technology. According to a Samsung Members community admin, the company is also working on a major update for the Galaxy S7. Google also adds app shortcuts directly from the home screen for easy access to actions on frequently used apps. But more recently it shifted focus to an out-folding type that is more difficult to make.
One of the most popular Custom Rom called Cyanogenmod was shut down and was converted to a new ROM called the Lineage OS. The reward is huge, and if Samsung releases a foldable Galaxy X, it could create more buzz than the iPhone X. There's no reason to beat around the bush: that was a lie. Whatever phone is the fastest overall, wins.
However, if these leaked details go flatter, the display in J7 plus will be of a decreased resolution and lacking the "infinity display" as we saw in Note 8 and Galaxy S8. Face ID may be a step ahead of Samsung's erratic facial recognition, but the Galaxies also had Iris recognition plus the iPhone X's selling points of OLED, a glass back, fast wired charging (not optional), wireless charging (also fast) and class leading cameras.
What that means for users is that the more apps you have open on an iPhone right now, the less likely for you to pick up where you left off in all of them.
In the end, even with Samsung's mobile division Chief Koh Dong-jin saying that Samsung would have their foldable smartphone ready for next year, we're now hearing another Samsung executive backtracking as fast as he possibly can to put their foldable smartphone project back into 'No Man's Land.' Oh, so surprising, Samsung attempting to manipulate the tech press. We hear rumors about a Galaxy X that will surpass iPhone and every Apple cellular device.
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge both started on Android Marshmallow with TouchWiz before Samsung rolled out Android 7.0 Nougat and a newer version of Samsung's UI. And this past Friday when the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were released, he fired it up.
