Samsung wants to release foldable smartphones next year

Flexible, foldable, and transparent screens have been around for quite some time but haven’t actually made their way to any products, at least not the kind that anyone would actually want to buy. Samsung wants to change that and, starting in 2016, the company will be releasing some smartphones with foldable screens. How foldable and what they devices will be like remains unclear. 

The shape of smartphone screens, on which you can enjoy movies and dramas, is no longer a square box. It doesn’t break even if you twist or bend it. And you can now just pick it up and carry it. Display technology, which expresses data in visual images, has been steadily evolving. A senior official from LG Display said on March 23, “The development of display technology that creates a virtual space on glass is already completed, and even a promotional prototype is available. However, it will take time until the product becomes commercialized due to mass production according to demand and stable supply.” LG Display and Samsung Display, two leading companies in the global display market, have a 50 percent worldwide market share. To keep that share, they are both working on two types of new technologies that will offer new experiences to users – transparent displays and flexible displays.
