Are Foldable Smartphones On The Way?

Rumor has it Samsung may be working on a foldable smartphone. With the growing popularity of flexible displays, this is not a big surprise. Yes, there have been foldable smartphones to date, but not based on a foldable screen. Previous devices have relied on a smaller screen or even two screens to achieve this. Supposedly, Samsung will release the first “real” foldable smartphone at Mobile World Congress 2017. While the details are still sketchy, it appears a wave of foldable devices (more than just smartphones) may be on the horizon. There may be foldable tablets or even flexible smartwatches coming as well. Could this be this the next big trend for mobile devices?
