This Samsung foldable phone may become reality in February
The flip phone of the future is a foldable phone.
Samsung has been working on making phones with bendable screens.
The Korean company recently published a patent for a phone that folds in half, right down the middle of the screen.
Closing like a wallet or makeup compact.
Samsung has been tinkering with the concept for some time now, it created a promotional video for bendable phones a few years ago which you're seeing here, and back in June, Bloomberg reported that we could see such a phone become reality next year maybe even two types of phones with bendable screens.
Samsung could debut these at Mobile World Congress.
It's a major mobile trade show held every February in Barcelona, Spain.
