South Korean smartphone maker, Samsung, may unveil a game-changer device next year which can be a 5-inch smartphone when folded and turn into a 7-inch tablet when opened, a media report said.
The tech giant reportedly invested into several technologies that are needed to build the foldable smartphone and the device can bend a screen in half by using OLED Display. One can also carry it like a wallet and use it by opening it.
“Development of foldable OLED is taking place according to our plan. We are planning on mass-production and release of this product by discussing with our partners,” Lee Chang-hoon, director of Samsung Display, said in January this year.
“Although mass-production cannot be concluded hastily since Samsung Electronics still has few other major tasks to complete, I have heard that Samsung Electronics had made a considerable amount of results in the time being,” a representative of an industry was quoted as saying.
