On Wednesday, San Francisco Senior Vice President, Jastin Denison, revealed a folding prototype of a smartphone at the upcoming Samsung press conference, indicating that the company will be ready to launch mass-screen production in the coming months.
Denison does not provide information about when folding Samsung smartphones can reach consumers.
"This screen is the backbone of a smartphone tomorrow. When it's open, it's a tablet that offers an amazing screen experience. When it's closed, it's a cellphone that can be inserted into your pocket," Denison said.
Meanwhile, at the beginning of this week, California-based Royole announced it would offer the world's first commercially available folding smartphone. FlexPai smartphones are available for orders with prices starting at 1,381 dollars (1,147 euros).
