According to Bloomberg, Samsung may roll out smartphones using the technology next year. Citing “people familiar with the matter,” the report says one of the devices could fold in half like a compact.
A second device will feature a 5-inch screen as a phone, and expand to an 8-inch screen in a tablet form.
Samsung is familiar with the bendable screen, launching the Galaxy Edge smartphone featuring a touchscreen that curves on to the side. If true, this next phase would mark a huge step forward for touchscreens.
The smartphone business could use an injection of life with signs of a slowdown approaching. Internet analyst Mary Meeker projects smartphone sales to rise 21%, slower than the 31% growth rate from the year before.
