Is Samsung Readying A Folding Phone For MWC?

Posted In News, Reviews - By AndroidPress on Monday, February 4th, 2013 With No Comments »

Samsung’s flexible displays are not new news.  From my recollection, these displays surfaced well over a year ago but we have yet to see this display put into market.  It does, of course, take time to figure out how to use new products like this in a way that will benefit the end user.  And it does require other components, like a bendable battery, to make a folding phone feasible.  Well if these new rumours are to be believed, it seems that Samsung has figured out a way to put it all together.

The mysterious device currently known as the Galaxy Q aka GT-B9150 will apparently feature a bendable screen.  Apparently it will be similar to that Kyocera Echo that launched a while back that had two displays that could, in essence, become one.  One of the problems with that design however was that you had a bezel breaking up the display.  But if you happen to have a bendable display, which Samsung does have, you would really be able create a dual display that can become one large display when opened.

The other great news is that each these displays is to feature full 1920×1080 resolution which means things will be amazingly sharp and crisp.  Other rumours have this being powered by a dual-core Exynos 5 chip with 2GB RAM, and 8MP Camera, a 2MP Front Facing Camera, a massive 3500 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.1 to run the show.

This is a rumour so take it as such.  However, if this rumour does hold to be true we could see the device at MWC in a few weeks.  I for one welcome the age of flexible displays.  I’m ready to have a phone that can double as a tablet.  Yes, I know there’s the Asus PadPhone but that’s still technically two devices.  And even though many say the Note is as big as a tablet, I still consider it a phone.
