Samsung and LG both racing to out a foldable phone
A real foldable device is another matter, though, as you can have a largish display in a small pocketable footprint for carrying around. We already learned that Samsung's Project V (for Valley), is being tested for January release. The foldable smartphone is allegedly being run through its paces with both Snapdragon 620 and 820 configurations, 3 GB of RAM, microSD card slot, and, naturally, a non-removable battery.
How exactly will Samsung's foldable Project V smartphone look like, remains to be seen, but the Korean media reports today that LG has also created foldable display prototypes, and intends to use them in proof-of-concept phones. LG has apparently cracked the bendy code at the beginning of the year, and is mulling commercial applications for such screens. Samsung has had a working prototype of this display for a while now, allowing for thousands of closings and openings without deterioration of the folding area.
