Samsung Plans Two Phones With Folding Screens – And It Could Be A ‘Game Changer’

Forget phones, tablets and ‘phablets’ – the next big thing could be ‘smartlets’, phones which unfold into tablets.

Samsung is planning a wave of bendy-screened gadgets – and it could be a ‘game changer’ according to analysts.

The Korean phone giant, which already sells phones with curved screens, is said to be planning devices already, according to Bloomberg.
One device is a 5-inch handset which ‘unfolds’ into a larger 8-inch tablet, according to company sources.

Another folds in half like a compact mirror – and the devices could go on sale early next year, according to sources.

‘This product could be a game-changer if Samsung successfully comes up with a user interface suitable for bendable screens,’ said Lee Seung Woo, an analyst at IBK Securities Company.

‘Next year is a probable scenario. Their biggest obstacle was related to making transparent plastics and making them durable, which seems resolved by now.’

Samsung has previously teased the idea with various videos showing how a ‘bendable’ smartphone might work.
