Since Samsung exhibited for the first time its foldable display back then at CES 2013 as YOUM. There have been other companies like Lenovo and LG which have exhibited their prototypes, but no one of them have make a commercial launch at this time just yet.
It seems to make such a device is not that easy.
But sometimes I believe Lenovo and LG are waiting for Samsung launch of the bendable smartphone first, then to come out with theirs.
Besides the comment below made by Koh Dong-jin, President of mobile business at Samsung electronics:
Koh Dong-jin, president of mobile business at Samsung Electronics, said the company is setting its eyes on 2018 to release a smartphone with a bendable display. But he said there are several hurdles it has to overcome, leaving room to push back the release if those problems are not solved.
“As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year,” he told reporters. “When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product.”
I think Samsung is getting ready for a real launch in 2018, CES or MWC, that have to be confirmed officially .
Meanwhile letsgodigital site has found on NRRA National Radio Research Agency (NRRA) of the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) from South Korea a certificate for a Equipment of radio equipment for LTE mobile communication (transceiver of land mobile station) model name SM-G888N0 with the certification number MSIP-CMM-SEC-SMG888N0 for Samsung Electronics, certification dated September 21st,2017.
Before pictures of the bendable smartphone were leaked or posted with patent applications by Samsung:
Is Samsung going to start launching this version of bendable smartphone instead of launching the other version of foldable smartphone to tablet (smartlet) in 2018?
