This Samsung foldable smartphone, nicknamed 'Project Valley,' is still under development, but rumors say that it will be unveiled in January of 2016.

The foldable smartphone's screen is made of a flexible plastic material that can be bent and folded without breaking. The foldable smartphone could be folded in half like a small paper notebook and placed easily in a pocket or case. Samsung has been the forerunner in the production and popularization of the "phablet" (hybrid phone and tablet), and may now become the leader in foldable smartphone technology.

Reports state that the foldable smartphone is being tested in China and will most likely be initially released in two models: one with a Snapdragon 620 processor and one with a more powerful 820 processor.
