Samsung is currently holding an Analyst Day meeting with investors in Korea, and the event is revealing some interesting information right from the horse’s mouth. Samsung Vice Chairman and CEO, Oh-Hyun Kwon has said that the company is aiming to bring devices with folding displays to market by 2015, and bendable ones even earlier in 2014.

Mass market availability might not happen before 2016-2017, but like the Galaxy Round, a limited launch could happen much sooner, allowing Samsung to test the waters before jumping right in with guns blazing. Samsung showed off numerous folding display concepts recently, and from words spoken at the analyst meeting, it seems the Korean manufacturer is working hard to make them a reality as soon as possible.
