Lee Seung Woo, an analyst at IBK Securities Co. in Seoul, said, “This product could be a game-changer if Samsung successfully comes up with a user interface suitable for bendable screens. Next year is a probable scenario. Their biggest obstacle was related to making transparent plastics and making them durable, which seems resolved by now.”
Codenamed “Project Valley,” the phones with these new and latest features could be soon unveiled in February 2017, when Mobile World Congress takes place in Barcelona.
The company sources said that, Samsung has a lot of interest in delivering these foldable devices to the willing customers by the year 2017, and that the company is currently looking at ways to make that technology work and that Screen Tech will be ready by the year 2017.
These smart devices work with flexible OLED screens in which one features a bendable smartphone when unfolded turns into a larger tablet, and while the other transforms from a 5-inch smartphone sized screen to a display roughly eight inches large.
