Samsung to introduce bendable smartphone in 2017


New Delhi: Samsung is working two bendable smartphones, and is looking to launch two smartphones next year. According to reports, the company will unveil two smartphones with flexible displays at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in 2017. These smartphones wouldn't be a part of the Galaxy S Series, and have so far been codenamed Project Valley.

The company is expecting to regain its customers lost to Apple by developing new screen formats. However, Samsung's curved screen displays on Edge variants of its phones have failed to attract good business expected by the company.

But before coming out with the bendable phones, Samsung will be launching its next Note phablet in August this year. Rumours so far have suggested that the Note 6 will have 5.5-inch and 5.8-inch screen variants.

Samsung, which is also the biggest supplier of OLED display, is not the only one who is working on foldable screens. A Chinese company named Moxi has already started making such phones and hopes to deliver 100,000 of the devices in 2016.
