We may not have to wait much longer to see Samsung’s long-rumored bendable smartphone.

The Korean tech giant plans to unveil the phone, which is rumored to be named the Galaxy X, in January at CES, according to a new report in Yahoo News.

The report comes after a company support page for the product surfaced on Samsung’s website. Spotted by Dutch site Mobilekopen, the support page shows a smartphone model number that’s previously been linked to the Galaxy X.

Samsung’s president of mobile business Koh Dong-jin previously confirmed to media the company will launch a foldable phone sometime in 2018, according to Yahoo.

We still don’t know much about what the final product will look like, but we have a pretty good idea how it could work, thanks to patent images that were published in October by the Korean Patent Office.

Those images show a a smartphone with a hinge in the center of the device, which allows the phone to be folded in half, similar to a flip phone.

It’s not clear whether the final product will look like the patent images, of course, but the good news is we won’t have much longer to wait — if the Galaxy X does indeed launch at this year’s CES, then the answers to a lot of our questions are just a few weeks away.
