The future of phones is folding

Flexible smartphones like Samsung’s rumoured Galaxy X have been promised for years but technical challenges face the companies racing to bring folding touchscreens to market

The future of smartphones is folding. At least, that’s what Samsung thinks. In its latest earnings report, the company says it “will continue its efforts to differentiate its smartphones by adopting cutting-edge technologies, such as foldable OLED displays.”

That statement is being widely interpreted to mean that the company is nearing production of the Galaxy X, its long-rumoured foldable phone, with some speculating that it could be revealed as early as this month’s Mobile World Congress trade show.

A Samsung representative told WIRED that “we do not have any further information” at the moment, but the company’s comments about foldable screens come in the wake of years of patent applications that could turn its advances in flexible OLED displays into a radical reinvention of the flip phone.
