Korea’s ETNews site claims that Samsung has been developing such a foldable smartphone for three years. This upcoming device would fold out in much the same way as you fold out a wallet. The device has been referred to as a “smartlet.”

Samsung hasn’t confirmed the report, however the company’s display group has shown off bendable or foldable concept designs and prototypes in the past.
