Smartphones with foldable display will launch in 2017
It is disappointing to hear that we will not be getting to witness a new form of a display, Kevin Wang, the Research Director for China has stated that while manufacturers have made good on their promise to deliver the first ever foldable display smartphone on the planet, practical implementations of this particular technology will force these manufacturers to roll out the first ever product during 2017. Currently, Samsung and LG happen to be the leading the pack of the largest display manufacturers, although we have heard nothing from LG’s side.
The only thing we have heard about is Samsung’s Project Valley, which involves a foldable display and opens and closes much like a book.

For now, we will waiting for future updates regarding this and hope to keep you in the loop as well.
