Report says Samsung will start selling foldable smartphones in 2017
We already know that Samsung is working on a foldable phone (internally dubbed Project Valley), and we’ve also seen some possible designs. Last we heard, there were rumors of it launching in January this year - that obviously didn’t happen. Now, it looks like the device won’t be coming this year.
A new report from Samsung’s home country of South Korea is claiming that the company will start mass-producing foldable displays by end of this year, with foldable smartphones arriving next year.
The report notes that Samsung’s foldable device would be a 5-inch smartphone in folded form, and would become a 7-inch tablet when un-folded or opened. Past rumors have suggested that the company is testing both Snapdragon 620 and 820 for its Project Valley smartphone, while RAM will be 3GB.
Seems like the foldable phones are arriving sooner than expected. Would be a milestone for sure.
Next they should work on Point-Screen technology. It shouldn’t be too hard to achieve with modern technology. Samsung already did a hover-screen thing with their S4 from 2013, all they need to do is increase the distance to about 10 inches, and make it’s precision accurate. Would definitely be a breakthrough!
