IF this is what they release, they sure better not charge 1500 bucks for it. Most likely, this is just a PLANNED leak to get sites to pump this up, then release a real folding screen, instead of a twin screen to "wow" the uber geeks that will willingly shell out 1500 bucks for a toy.

The writer of this article is so dumb, do you not remember the demo of the working prototype, the samsung person on stage said they had to manufacture the screen 45% thinner then conventional displays to allow it to FOLD, he also said the device was hidden inside a case so as not to show the final design, meaning that the prototype he held was probably a very close to a final product albeit with some pre release software, he also went on to explain how the UI had to be programmed especially for this device to utilise both screens, and do you see him open and close the phone with no crease or seperate displays????? Talk about trash talking a product that hasnt even arrived, unless it was an iphone XSS + fold, then it would be wet dreams

Ever wondered why that prototype had such big shell. Flexible screens can’t fold flat and need a curve to fold, I think there is the dilemma or is Samsung willing to release a phone in the size of a book?

Oh damn, time to sit this one out. I was really looking forward to a flexible display.
