Have details of the Samsung Galaxy X been leaked?

When you're as excited as we are about the release of a new smartphone, you'll grab hold of any little nugget of information that emerges.

From newspaper quotes from unnamed sources to unsubstantiated rumours on forums, you'll take what you can get in order to find out what will be on offer.

So you'll understand how excited we were when Dutch technology site TechTastic published an image of what it says is the new Galaxy X from Samsung.

If the picture is genuine, it seems as if the new gadget doesn't actually look too dissimilar from the Galaxy S8.

However, there are a number of eye-catching differences. For instance, there are no sensors on the front, prompting speculation that it's because the screen is located at the back and can be seen on the front when the phone is folded.

Of course, one low-resolution picture isn't going to give away too many secrets, so frustratingly, we'll just have to wait a bit longer for more information from official sources.

One thing we can get excited about, though, is the growing expectation that Samsung is gearing up to unveil a stretchable smartphone screen.

Industry insiders say the manufacturer will unveil a 9.1-inch screen that can be rolled, bent and even severely dented before returning to its original shape.

This means the days of having your smartphone screen scratched by keys in your pocket could soon be consigned to the past.

Nevertheless, it's worth stressing at this stage that the technology, set to be unveiled at the Society for Information Display 2017 event, has only just come off the drawing board and only a few prototypes currently exist.

As a result, it could be a while before it comes on the market, but it certainly sounds as if it could be a game-changer for Samsung as it looks to forge ahead in the consumer electronics sector.
