Samsung Project Valley: first foldable phone coming in January

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Earlier this year a Samsung official announced that the company is 
building a bendable phone– think a flip phone with one continuous screen that covers the insides of both halves. A popular leakster on Weibo claims to have internal knowledge of the endeavor, dubbed Project Valley (aka Project V).

Samsung is reportedly testing both Snapdragon 620 and 820 for the phone. It doesn’t become clear if that's for two separate versions of the phone or just looking for the most suitable chipset. Either way, it will have 3GB of RAM.

The battery will be non-removable – no surprise since it would need to be a custom solution – but Samsung Project Valley will allegedly have a microSD slot. The screen will certainly be OLED, there are no bendy LCDs.

Project Valley will reportedly be ready in January next year. Perhaps we'll see an introduction at the MWC (end of February) or a separate event earlier than that.

The Sony Tablet P was a similar attempt back in 2012, but it used two separate screens (with an ugly bezel in the middle), the tech wasn’t ready back then. But this is one approach to continue growing smartphone screens without stretching out people's pockets.
