Samsung Reveals Phone To Tablet Prototype

We've already heard this week that Samsung is wanting to pursue the idea of foldable mobile phones, and we haven't had to wait long to get an idea of what the company intends to do.

The company has two prototypes to show off to its investors, even though the press wasn't invited to the event, Phone Arena heard from Jae Lee, a Daiwa Securities analyst, that a couple of demo items were on show.

He told the website: "The first one they showed us was the size of an S3 smartphone which can be folded in half from top to bottom. So like a compact powder used by women".

He added that "there was also one in the size of a lengthy wallet which can be unfolded on both sides into the size of a tablet computer".

Samsung has indicated that its foldable displays won't hit the market until the end of 2015 or the start of 2016.
