With the Samsung S9 selling well in the smartphone market, the South Korean giant may have more innovations up their sleeve.

The company's upcoming successor to the Galaxy series, unofficially known as the Galaxy X, is expected to feature not one but three LED panels, according to Forbes.

According to the report, two of the 3.5-inch LED panels when unfolded would combine to create a seven-inch display, somewhat like a tablet.
