Samsung’s first smartphone with a foldable display might launch in January

Samsung has always been at the pinnacle of smartphone display innovation, and a couple of steps ahead of its competitors. The company released the world’s first smartphone with a Super AMOLED display back in 2010, and the world’s first smartphone with a dual-edge curved display, the Galaxy S6 edge, earlier this year. Now, it is being reported that Samsung is eyeing to launch its first smartphone with a foldable display early next year.

According to a tipster from China, who claims to have in-depth knowledge and an early scoop on Project Valley, the device is currently undergoing testing. Apparently, the company is testing the device in two hardware configurations; one with Snapdragon 620 processor and the other with a Snapdragon 820 chipset. The device is, which is said to be launched in January 2016, would sport 3GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, and a non-removable battery.

The tipster also suggests that Samsung has heavily invested in testing the Snapdragon 820, so we think that the Galaxy S7 could very well be launched in two variants; one with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, and the other with Exynos 8890 processor. We confirm that this report looks authentic as we have received similar inputs from our trusted and dependable sources. However, it should be noted that this device isn’t the Galaxy S7, and Samsung could launch this device only in South Korea.

According to our sources, the device in question will act as a testbed for the Snapdragon 820 chipset. Whatever this device is, we are quite excited to see the company’s first device with a foldable display as it could very well change the course of the whole smartphone industry, and we are sure that you are excited about it as well. Do you think this upcoming device from Samsung will be a groundbreaking launch?

Bet with me. Apple will launch a dual-edge screen phone 3-5 yrs from now like how they copied the Samsung phablets. Oh I forgot, Apple is currently trying to copy the S-pen using an ordinary ballpen LOL. Innovators indeed!

And I won’t buy that either without an SD card, front facing speakers and a massive battery.

I have been critical of the latest offerings but this is intriguing. I happen to feel the “edge” is a gimmick more than anything else. This to me has potential.

Groundbreaking or not, here’s my pre-order.

Don’t hold your breath. It won’t happen for at least 4-5 years. That is unless Apple comes out with it first, then Samsunk will have to follow as usual. And if Samsunk finally does release one, you can bet they’ll sacrifice everything for it. Probably a 2,000mah battery, 640 x 480 screen and no wifi.

Oh look a Apple fanboi.

Apple comes out with it first?

Just like they invented the pen right?

I effin HATE crapple. Far from a fanboi. If anything, you tools are closer to a crapple fanboi if you like the Note 5, of which Samsunk desperately tries to clone.

Bla bla bla, can you for once respond in a normal manner. We for a fact know they are really far in development with this. So release early 2016 could be possible.

It definitely will be a damn groundbreaking phone. But as any other new techs are, the first gens always have problems
