Samsung announced today the SM-G888N0. Before you get excited, the Samsung SM-G888N0 is not the rumored foldable Galaxy X phone. It's a rugged Samsung LTE phone for the South Korean railway.
Samsung mentioned the SM-G888N0 model number in a press release announcing the world’s first LTE-Railway Service on high-speed trains.
"In specific, Samsung has provided its radio access network operating in 700 MHz, a global band for LTE-based Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR), a dedicated core network including EPC, IMS and PTT servers deployed in two control centers, as well as rugged smartphones (SM-G888N0) for professionals."
Back in November, the SM-G888N0 model number surfaced on the Samsung support site and was linked to the foldable Galaxy X. A lot of the tech sites including CNET have reported about this. Happy editing.
We don't expect the foldable Samsung Galaxy X in 2018. There is no evidence that Samsung is ready to release such a device anytime soon. Samsung is working on foldable displays as the company continues to file patents for such devices. A patent filing is not a strong indicator for an upcoming product release.
