Samsung’s foldable smartphones make news again, might not launch in US
Samsung is undoubtedly one of the bosses out there when it comes to the manufacturing of devices with clear cut displays and also stylish displays. It has been a while since the South Korean smartphone manufacturer has been boasting of being in the works over what would be the world’s first smartphone with a foldable display.
Year after year, we get prototypes and the possibility that these devices would soon be in our hands but then like water, these hopes slip away from out grip like water only for them to re-surface the year after.
Nicknamed the Project Valley (that could be an insight into what shape Samsung wants their foldable smartphone to assume), this device has been rumored to be near completion again and we might see it alongside the Samsung Galaxy S7 on its proposed January launched date. If the device would meet up with the S7’s release date as well, we might be looking at another Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset powered device.
For now, there’s no news on whether the phone (if / when it is released ) would be sold in the United States even though the sales in other large markets such as the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, France, Poland and as well, its home country of South Korea, to mention but a few.
This might be due to the rigidity of the US market to new waves in technology. Hopefully, Samsung changes its mind.
