With the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) right around the corner, big names in the smartphone market are looking ahead to introduce new innovations that will aim at taking the customers by storm when the devices are released officially.
And while everyone is already geared up to showcase whatever new they have in the event, it seems like big players such as Samsung still remain to be one of the most sought after brands of all with a lot expected to be revealed from the company at the event.
Now, more reports, prior to the event, are flowing in stating that Samsung is actually planning to introduce a foldable (or bendable) tablet at the MWC. Although there's a catch: Apparently, Samsung will only show off this particular prototype in secrecy, says a report from ETNews.
As revealed, the new device will allow users to choose between a tablet mode and a laptop mode, with the device's screen also able to bend at 90 degrees. However, details the product, as of now, are next to none, and no one knows for sure as to if and when such a convertible tablet model would be launched.
Stories circulating on the web related to foldable devices being introduced by Samsung aren't particularly new. A few weeks ago there were several claims made about Samsung's plans to release its own foldable flagship smartphones in 2015.
Seoul-based KDB Daewoo Securities analyst Song Jong-ho stated at that time: "The bent smartphones will be rolled out as a Galaxy variant with a few million units at the end of this year, initially taking aim at the niche market."
Samsung's MWC presentation is expected to introduce a host of new devices that will eventually be released later down the line, and the foldable tablets could be one of them. We will know shortly.
