We all have been hearing the news about the foldable smartphones for years now, but none of them did materialise as they way many tech pundits have predicted. However, this might change in 2017.
According to a report by ET News, Samsung is allegedly working on two different types of foldable smartphones, with one sporting a dual-screen to be launched in early 2017. Well, there is also a possibility that Samsung might unveil the device during Consumer Electronics Show (CES) which will be held in January 2017 in Las Vegas or at Mobile World Congress (MWC) which will take place in February 2017 in Barcelona.
The dual-screen smartphone will actually be hinged together, meaning that it will open or close similar to a book. It is also reported that the smartphone will come in three different orientations: fold out to move the screens on the front and back, fold in to protect the displays, and laid out flat to use it as a tablet.
The report further adds that the company is planning to produce a small amount of the foldable smartphone and then assess the market response. And according to the feedback, will go further to develop more devices.
The company is reported to launch the foldable smartphone which will have a single flexible OLED screen and will arrive sometime after the dual-screen phone. The flexible smartphone can be considered as the next wave of revolution in the smartphone industry. Although, there is no official word about this development, but it would be interesting to see the upcoming foldable smartphone from Samsung’s arsenal.
