Samsung thinks foldable phones are the new flip phones
The next-generation flip phone could be foldable.
A Samsung patent application was recently published (original, in Korean) and shows renderings of a phone that folds in half down its middle.
The company is expected to release a bendable smartphone next year, according to reports. We don't know for certain whether this patent application would tie in to those alleged devices -- or ever be used at all -- but it looks plausible at least.
