The device is said to be in the making since years and now Samsung has allotted it a new codename called "Winner" indicating it is ready to throttle the production of the device and place it in the "short-production" category.
The Bell claims that Samsung has changed the codename of its foldable smartphone from Valley to victor. Last year's Galaxy S8 was codenamed "Dream", while the Galaxy S9 was codenamed "Star". The report states that since the development phase of the phone is getting over and it is nearing the release, the company has chose to change its codename. Now, the rumors about the company's upcoming smartphone are already started surfacing on the web. The South Korean tech firm unveiled the current generation of Galaxy Tab S series nearly a year ago, and the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is already overdue. It was earlier reported that the Galaxy X may get unveiled this year itself. The X is supposedly the rumored smartphone that will come with a foldable OLED display. That could change in 2019, however, according to a recent report from South Korean financial publication The Bell which claims the S10 will enter manufacturing in October ahead of the early January debut. As for parts, display panels to be obtained from November with a shipment capacity of about 3,00,000 to 5,00,000 per month, as per the report. This is the same device which Samsung reportedly showcased to private partners at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Two will fold into each other to create a wider display when opened, with the third on the back so you can use the device without having to unfold it. There might be some changes in plans until the devices launch so what mentioned above can be taken with a pinch of salt.
