When we imagined that rumors about the future foldable smartphoneThey could not be strangers,has had access to the firmware of a very curious South Korean terminal, which we know has two screens taken directly from the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, along with the Exynos 8895 processor of the Galaxy Note8 . A Frankenstein In all rules.
The terminal in question is codenamed lugelte , and according to what has been discovered has nothing to do with-and that stars in the cover image of this article-. In fact, this model is included in the supposed, Y the rumors suggest that it could be the expected
This is the mysterious Samsung phone with Note 4 screen and Note8 processor
Looking through the details that are included in the terminal firmware code, you can see how there is a “dual_panel” mode in the screen driver, the panel in question being a 5.7-inch SuperAMOLED with Quad HD resolution -2,560 x 1,440 pixels- with the identifier s6e3ha2, corresponding to the screen of the.

This is not a completely new strategy, because we already saw how, its first folding phone with two screens, and the Snapdragon 821 processor in the middle of October 2017, when the Snapdragon 835 was already inside most of the flagship terminals of its generation.
Another detail to highlight, is that it is very unlikely that Samsung will use the Galaxy Note 4 screens in its first folding smartphone , especially if we stick to the information that ensures that the brand takes time developing special panels for this type of terminals, able to withstand the pressure exerted by the user when folding the phone on numerous occasions. The most feasible thing is that this version that comes to light today, is a functional prototype designed to be used by Samsung engineers to develop
Be that as it may, there is no doubt that Samsung is getting closer to presenting the world its first folding smartphone , and this model known internally as lugelte has all the ballots to become the final terminal that, if the rumors do not fail, we would see for the first time at the beginning of next year 2019.
