Samsung Galaxy Q to come with foldable dual-screen display?
We’ve been hearing about an alleged mysterious Samsung GT-B9150, aka the Galaxy Q, a device that is now rumored to be a bit too good for reality. Why? Well, it features a flexible display, but not the kind you imagine - think of a Kyocera Echo on steroids.

At least that’s what rumor says. The Galaxy Q is portrayed as having two displays that fold into one, and each of them features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. All of that is said to be coming at Mobile World Congress at the end of the month, but while we strongly doubt this, here is what the rumor says about this device.

The Galaxy Q will be powered by a 1.7 Ghz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor working along with 2GB RAM. It’s said to be equipped with an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera, and runs on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. Best of all, it comes with a huge 3,500mAh battery.

Do you believe this dual-screen weird device will actually get released by Samsung at MWC? And would you get one of those? Sound off in the comments below.

Come on PA. Chrome is alerting me that malware is on your site. Something with netseeker content.

I know it's not a phone, but this article reminded me of the Sony Tablet P. I like the idea of 2 screens seamlessly folding into one without the bezel in between them.

Kyocera has a patent for something like this. I wonder if Samsung found a way to get around it or if they are licensing it from Kyocera.

Please be careful using the "i" word. Don't want to get apples attention, they'll run out and patent this!

Wow! That is ridiculously awesome if it had two 1080 P displays. The battery would die pretty fast but Nintendo might buy it off of them for the new DS and put in a fatter battery.

If this is one of their experiments, then the GS4 will be absolutely sick. Too bad I can't buy a new phone for years. Sigh....

They did show off the same"concept" at their keynote speech @ CES. So maybe it was done possible foreshadowing by Samsung. Remember the guy sitting at the bar witha bunch ofLED's flashing around his phone and the girl ignores him. Then the next fellow sits down and pulls a device out of his shirt pocket and unfolds it to double the display size..

That is exactly the way they said the flexible AMOLED displays would be used as well. Until the other parts can be flexible as well. But until then they said keep your eyes out for a bi/tri folding screen.
