USA: Samsung patent application for its foldable smartphone is on the US Patent and Trademark Office.


The US Patent and Trademark Office has just published an application from Samsung Project V (as the shape of the mobile when it is almost folded) model number SM-G929F for the foldable smartphone/tablet also known as Project Valley.

Despite 9to5mac shows on their site a different draw of the foldable device where it shows an iPod icon we just believe that a year and 6 months ago when Samsung presented the same application patent in South Korea , Samsung was maybe in talks with Apple for some kind of music services at that time from Apple.

Microsoft is going to make available Cortana on iPhones with Apple approval, Time has changed and USA companies are helping each other making some applications available on their devices despite they are competitors.

Samsung is the number one Apple chip supplier a long time ago, so why not sharing some app or service on their mobiles.

According to SamMobile, Valley will be sold in several European countries (the U.K., Germany, Italy, France, Poland) and Nordic nations, as well as its homeland of South Korea. A U.S. release, however, does not seem to be in cards. The last experimental handset launched by Samsung, 2013’s curved Galaxy Round, never made it outside of the Korean market. 

Rumors are saying Samsung might unveil finally the foldable mobile in January 2016, CES 2016 perhaps?
