Mockup of a bendable Samsung

With the Galaxy Note8 barely out of Samsung’s stables, the South Korean company is looking at the future and thinking it might be time they did something new with their Note line. Samsung announced at an event in Seoul, South Korea that it plans for the next iteration of the Galaxy Note to be somewhat bendable. According to Dongjin Koh, president of mobile business at Samsung, they are still working on surpassing some hurdles and will push back release if they don’t get these resolved.

“When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product,” said Koh. “We are digging thoroughly into several issues we must overcome, as we don’t want to just make a few, sell a few and be done. We want to hear that Samsung made a very good product. We have a plan to adopt a foldable display in our roadmap.” This is the first time Samsung has publicly acknowledged that they are working on a smartphone with a foldable display. But it has been rumoured countless times that they're working on this.
