Samsung had officially announced at the beginning of the year that they are working on a foldable smartphone! You may already be wondering, "Oh gosh! Is Samsung trying out something retro?" While the concept of phones with foldable display may seem analogous to the flip phones of the past, but that isn't the case actually.
The reason behind the attempt of pulling of phones with foldable display is to include a large screen in a smartphone without be too large within the pocket.
Apparently a new info states that Samsung's mission of producing a foldable phone is being dubbed as a Project Valley. The Pilot Project of the Korean company aims to conceptualize a phone that can come with a foldable display, thereby enabling users to carry large screen mobile devices in their pocket with ease.
The report further claims that Samsung is using both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 and the Snapdragon 810 SoC for their foldable phone. The company might even come up with two variants of their revolutionary device. However the RAM inside is constant at 3GB.
No information is available about the display as of now. But considering the fact that there are no bendable LCDs around, Samsung is expected to use an OLED panel. Size is panel is also not know.
However we at least know that Samsung will be packing in a user replaceable battery with the Project Valley device along with a memory expansion slot via MicroSD card.
The foldable handset is tipped to be ready by January next year. Hence we can expect Samsung to showcase their revolutionary product at the MWC Barcelona, which is scheduled somewhere in February.
