For a quite sometime now we’ve heard reports that Samsung is working on foldable or ‘rollable’ smartphone, several rumors also have been increasing with frequency over the past few months.
Insiders who spoke with Bloomberg, reports that Samsung may launch foldable smartphones, the first “Project Valley” foldable devices soon. According to Bloomberg, the company is “considering” introducing two new smartphones next year with flexible displays. These smartphones will apparently “fold-in-half”, like a “cosmetic compact”, one is expected to expand from a 5 inch mobile into eight inches, from mobilephone to tablet. The report uses the world “unfurls” to describe the transformation, and suggests that it utilizes a rollable, not foldable, display. Sources also reported that neither of these devices will be branded as part of Samsung’s best-selling Galaxy S flagship line.
Although the sad news is that we still have a while to wait for this new tech to be unveiled during next year’s Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, this would be a new age device that would be quite popular given its nature.
