In the past we have seen Samsung unveil some of the prototypes that they were working on, one of which included a display that could be bent. We’re not talking about a display that’s curved like on the Galaxy S6 Edge, we’re talking about a device whose display can actually be folded around.
In fact earlier this year there was talk about Samsung finally bringing such a product to the market in the form of Project Valley. Now according to a new report, it seems that we might be able to expect that device to be launched in January 2016. Given that January is when CES takes place, this means that the device, if real, will be shown off then.
According to the rumors, there will apparently be two configurations that Samsung is exploring. One will be powered by a Snapdragon 620, and the other will be powered by a Snapdragon 820. However regardless of display, the rest of the specs are expected to remain the same. This includes 3GB of RAM, a built-in SD card slot, and a non-removable battery.
The idea of a foldable smartphone does sound like a novelty. However given how well-receive the Galaxy S6 Edge was, it’s safe to say that consumers love novelty, although we have to wonder what kind of purpose would such a device serve?
