As per the leaked renders, the so-called Galaxy X is expected to come in around design with a hinge in the center. If the rumor turns out to be true, this smartphone will have a different aspect ratio rather than the usual 16:9. On the whole, it is basically a combination of flip and touch smartphone with a huge bend on the center.
According to the patent, Samsung is expected to back their physical home button, capacitive buttons which are pretty interesting considering the form factor of the device. If you carefully observe the hinge which leaves a gap on the render is so similar to Surface Book’s hinge.
