We have heard rumours over the last few years that claim Samsung have been working on a foldable phone. We have seen images of flexible screens is all shapes and sizes. However it sounds like Samsung might be bringing this angle to the market in 2017. The latest rumour comes from the site Weibo in China. According to the sources, Samsung will release five flagships in 2017. Four of them are the standard launches: Galaxy S8, S8 Edge, Galaxy Note 7, and Note 7 Edge. A fifth device is being called “Galaxy X,” and it will apparently feature a foldable 4K display. The display will have diamond PenTile subpixel arrangement and fold in half like a wallet. That’s all we know so far about the Galaxy X.
There has been a drive over the last year to resurrect the flip phone thanks to TV shows glamorising the form factor on many Primetime TV shows. Rather than stepping back to the T9 days of the flip phone it makes sense that we take a step forward and make the modern technology bend to our needs and desires.
