Samsung is reportedly considering the release of two new smartphones in 2017 that feature bendable screens. One folds in half like a cosmetic compact, says Bloomberg corroborating an earlier report from ETNews.

The devices using organic light-emitting diodes could be unveiled as soon as early 2017, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. That would likely give it a head start on new Apple Inc. iPhones. The second Samsung model will have a 5-inch screen when used as a handset, that unfurls into a display that’s as large as 8 inches, similar to a tablet, the people said.



“This product could be a game-changer if Samsung successfully comes up with a user interface suitable for bendable screens,” said Lee Seung Woo, an analyst at IBK Securities Co. in Seoul. “Next year is a probable scenario. Their biggest obstacle was related to making transparent plastics and making them durable, which seems resolved by now.”

Samsung could unveil one or both of the devices codenamed 'Project Valley' at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The new smartphone would compete against the 2017 iPhone which is rumored to feature a massive redesign. Check out Samsung's concept video for bendable phones here.
