After the fiasco with its Galaxy Note 7 phone, Samsung now has plans to release a foldable smartphone in 2017.
Dutch tech site galaxyclub.nl discovered a patent application filed to the Korean patent office by Samsung, and it appears to show renders of Samsung's long-rumored foldable smartphone, or "Project Valley."
The described device has a screen that bends and folds like an old-school flip phone handset. It is expected to be "folded or unfolded semi automatically." A second display is also mentioned in the document. It is supposed to activate when you fold the device.
