When you think of a folding phone, an image of two large individual screens folding together comes to mind. But to do that you would need all sorts of hardware and stuff in between to make that work, right?
Well, if you're imagining a gadget with two displays and a hinge in between, you really need to see this thing for yourself. That's not how it works at all. It's one screen that folds just like a book.
The Samsung "Foldable Valley," as it's being called, is set to hit store shelves as early as January and it looks absolutely fascinating.
The high-resolution screen has been in the works on Samsung's display team and it would be made of a flexible, plastic-like material to prevent the screen from snapping when folded. This means you can just fold up this phablet and stick it in your pocket or purse, like a wallet.
Samsung introduced this technology at the International Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, in 2013. So it's only fitting that they found a way to incorporate this flexible technology in a gadget by now.
These images are a rough outlook as to what the Foldable Valley would look like, since they come from the same CES flexible screen presentation, but they do give us a peek at what Samsung might have up their sleeves for us this coming year.
