What is Samsung cooking up with their rumored first fold-able smartphone?
It seems that Samsung is planning to venture into developing a unique smartphone design, and from the looks of it, they are aiming for a different folding phone. The Project Valley concept appears to have a large fold-able screen with a rounded edge, making it look that it has no hinges that is similar to a clamshell design, but rather more of a wallet-like appearance.
The Samsung Project Valley already has a SM-G929F model number and based on the leaked information, it will have a similar hardware performance that of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ (model number SM-G928). A patent has already been filed by Samsung showing the concept of the fold-able phone with a curved screen. The specs would include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU, 3GB of RAM and a MicroSD slot.
Project Valley is expect to become available by January 2016, which is just in time for the annual Consumer Electronics Show, and it seems that they are avoiding any possible clashes with Apple in terms of releasing new smartphones as like they did with the Galaxy Note. This is a great opportunity to get more exposure for their latest model with plenty of coverage. It has already listed a large selection of target markets from different countries and the following are the said targets:
- BTU ? United Kingdom
- CPW ? United Kingdom (Carphone Warehouse)
- XEU ? United Kingdom / Ireland
- DBT ? Germany
- ITV ? Italy
- KOR – South Korea
- NEE ? Nordic countries
- XEF ? France
- XEO ? Poland
There are no full details yet for the Porject Valley fold-able phone, but we might get more updates in the coming weeks as January draws near, especially with the target price tag and the new name for the said Samsung phone. The question would be, what would the other phone brands do next?
