Samsung May Launch World’s First Foldable Smartphone In 2016
If the reports are to be believed, tech giant Samsung might launch the world’s first foldable smartphone in the next year. Reports further suggest that the unique device might see the light of the day as early as January 2016. Dubbed as Project Valley, the phone is currently in the testing phase.
The upcoming handset is expected to release in two hardware configurations, one powered by Snapdragon 620 processor and the other running a Snapdragon 820. Packed with a non-removable battery, it is likely to come with a 3GB RAM and a microSD slot. This is not the first time when Samsung is trying something new and exclusive. In 2010, it became the first smartphone manufacturer to feature Super AMOLED smartphone display. Samsung was recently in the news for its much-hyped Galaxy S6 Edge, the first dual-edge curved display.
In another project, Samsung is also working on a handset called Samsung Lucky LTE. Some sources also say that the firm is testing its next Galaxy S7 along with other variants. The upcoming device might come in two variants, one featuring a 14.47cm (5.7-inch) display and the other with a 13.20cm (5.2-inch) screen.
