Rolling an 5.2 inch foldable phone would look like a giant battery in your pocket
Kudos for Samsung for trying to innovate, but I can't see this being practical, seems like a gimmick.
the concept is great, but the of bending a screen repeatedly the mechanics look terrible, lots of returns.....
This could be really cool if it works out. Glad they are pushing research and development.
Look forward to something different plus could be Nokia E90 style android device i always wanted.
MAS, 15 Sep 2015Samsung is copying apple again. Doesn't apple have the bending phone/screen patent (iphone 6+)?The innovation here is that, *I think*, this might just bend back to its original shape!

AnonD-263806, 15 Sep 2015first done by sony the fold tablet... desperate Samsung lolSony did what?
i've stopped trusting samsung anymore now as they did announced such kinda screen way back somewhere in 2012-13 and then they took a vow of silence for this one... now they are coming with such a phone which surely is gonna fail with other failed "edge" projects... why cant they focus on making one perfect device than making millions of foolish devices with practically no usage and purpose?? i guess they took their galaxy naming a bit seriously so now they're gonna make as much phones as much the stars are on the real galaxy :p;)
Nicky, please explain the advantages of a folding display that would be useful in day-to-day usage.

It will create a whole new category of a hybrid phone-tablet. A trans-phablet device that can change it shape according to your desire and usages. I think this foldable device is best made with leather body material as it is flexible and foldible. That will bring about a new and more reasonable usage of leather. I bet this flexible phone will not have Corning Gorilla Glass.
samsung, tell us the benefits of a folding screen before releasing it. You made a great and useful sidescreen with note edge but you followed it with absolutely useless edges of s6-s6+.

According to your logic everything ever invented was a gimmick until it became mainstream.
As for VR do you really think companies are spending the money that they are for giggles?
Ta ta troll.
AnonD-85329, 15 Sep 2015Samsung should only consider to public this thing if and only if there is no bezel in between ... moreThey will publicize it. Youm display in January 2013. Note Edge prototype in April 2014. Then the real Note Edge in September 2014. Next, the S6 edge in April 2015 follow by S6 edge+ by August 2015. If they display a prototype in MWC next year, we will likely to see a commercial product by September 2016.
By the way, the patent actually come from their 2013 future product video.
Out of the big three, Android has the lowest overall score.
MAS, 15 Sep 2015Samsung is copying apple again. Doesn't apple have the bending phone/screen patent (iphone 6+)?Hahaha. I know right. Apple patent the Bendgate. Thanks for reminding us.
They just released a phone with minimal 2 edges curved..and now you want an entirely phone ?
maybe in 2018 or 2020
nicky, 15 Sep 2015To everyone that calls this gimmick, I think youre on the wrong website.It IS a gimmick. Just like 3D screens, virtual reality and anything else that will obviously not become a widely used industry standard.
And this site caters to gimmicks while leaving proper journalism as a 2nd priority over facts.
