Samsung will be releasing a phone with "bent" display later this year, Korean media reports, and it will be part of the Galaxy line still. The company showcased such a prototype when it was introducing its YOUM brand of flexible mobile display panels at last year's CES.

Hope bent smartphones will be more affordable this year. Both the Round & Flex were ridicoulusly pricey.

Oh Samsung, are you copying again?
BS aside, there is really no denying that Samsung is on the bleeding edge of cutting into new technologies.
The foldable Note 5 could be the kind of a game changing product that will put even Apple's achievements to shame.

As a Kyocera Echo owner... What Samsung is doing so far can not even be considered anything CLOSE to what the Echo is...

Nice to see Samsung pushing technology further. I just hope that it improves functionality. I'm still a bit skeptical about bendable/foldable displays.

Foldable Note 5: I see no real use of it. I like to see more durable and waterproof version. Nothing too extreme in protection but more like close to or better than Sony Xperia Z1.

Why don't you wait until you see an actual model before you claim there is no use for it.

Bent? Perhaps. Foldable 2015? I doubt it. Maybe 2017 or 2018.

Do you have an inside source for this information? Maybe you know the future and if that is the case may I suggest picking lottery numbers. Wait a minute.... I know what you did last sum..... nevermind..... this stupid guessing game is harder than I thought
