Samsung will reportedly release foldable smartphones by next year

Latest reports out of Korea suggest that Samsung could bring foldable smartphones to the market in 2016. Foldable displays have been an area of interest for Samsung. Back in 2014 it was reported that Samsung had actually shown off its first foldable display behind closed doors at the Consumer Electronics Show. The IHS recently released a report claiming that foldable tablets might hit the market by the end of this year. It remains to be seen though if Samsung can manage to bring this technology to the market before 2016.

The report by Business Korea cites an official from Samsung Display who says “The industry believes that the commercialization of foldable smartphones will be possible in 2016.” This could mean that Samsung Display expects to perfect the manufacturing process for these displays by then. Once yield numbers are good the company can think about using foldable displays in its mobile devices. If these reports are to be believed, it just might capitalize on this technology.

“Foldable” or “bendable”? It’s a big difference.
