A foldable smartphone from Samsung may soon become a reality.
Sources suggests that the project has been code-named as Project Valley and the device is currently going through several tests. It seems that the handset is being tested with two software configurations- one with Snapdragon 620 processor and the other with Snapdragon 820 chipset. January 2016 will be the launching time as per the rumors. The handset will also be sporting a 3GB of RAM, a micro SD card slot and a non-removable battery. Apparently tweaks says that the soon to be unveiled Galaxy S7 will be coming in two variants- one with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, and the other with Exynos 8890 processor.
Nevertheless the masses will be certainly excited to see the company's foldable display as it could be a revolutionary turning point of technology. Apparently the device in discussion will be like a test-bed for the Snapdragon 820 chipset.
Another tipster says that the foldable screen will be featured on a textile-like material which will be held together with tensile springs. A few other mechanisms gets the foldable screen straight and tight when the clamshell is opened. Some other rumors hints that the device may be build in a way that can be opened like a laptop. With this design the company will be employing a different hinge mechanism and an elastic unit to keep the screen straight.
