Separately, regular leaker Ice Universe, who has a good record when it comes to these things, tweeted that the Galaxy X would be shown off at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next January.

The original report also indicates that the unlocked variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 also stopped by at the FCC with a model number of SM-N960U, with support for all of the major wireless carriers in the United States.

Before June came to an end, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 made the rounds through the FCC on its way to an announcement later this year. While rumors expect the Galaxy X to be unveiled this year, it isn't expected to be available to purchase until 2019.

"Sentiment is absolutely not positive as South Korea heavily relies on exports, but we should see if that really hurts financially key exporters like Samsung", said Park Jung-hoon, a fund manager at HDC Asset Management that owns Samsung shares.

The close announcement dates for the Galaxy X and Galaxy S10 should not be a problem for Samsung.

A new filing by the FCC in the U.S. shows the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 S-stylus will have Bluetooth capabilities. Samsung is expected to only manufacture between 300,000 and 500,000 units of its foldable smartphone.

The word on the street is that Samsung's foldable device cost about $1,900 when it launches.

If we are to believe the latest Korean rumors, the foldable panels for the Galaxy X smartphones are supposedly scheduled to enter production this summer so that they could be ready for the early 2019 release.
