While Samsung hasn’t given away any much information about the phone. Slashgear says that mobile division head DJ Koh, president of mobile business at Samsung Electronics seemingly confirmed that a foldable smartphone is coming next year (2018). Whether that is in prototype or final form still remains unclear.
Samsung has demonstrated the display technology required for such a device many times over the last decade. But strong rumours and leaks are starting to build up.
