Its been a while, smart phone lovers all over the world are waiting for something new in the smartphone technology. According to SamMobile, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has just published an application last week, which the tech Giant Samsung filed earlier this year. Samsung filed a similar patent application in South Korea in 2014, so it could be that the product will be released there first before it’s rolled out to other markets around the world.
The project is named Project Valley (or project V). The Project Valley phone will carry model number SM-G929F. The Galaxy S6 edge+ has model number SM-G928, and the very small change in the foldable device’s model number suggests it could have specifications similar to the S6 edge+, with the foldable display being the highlight. From the information what is available, it looks like Samsung has developed a new 'hinge system' for implementing a foldable display. It’s a rather basic approach that would see a display placed on a mesh-like material with the hinge then allowing the user to fold the display, making a V shape in the process of closing or opening it. Samsung has already proved that they are pioneers in dealing with curved edges by Samsung S6 Edge itself.
The details around the patent were released first by Sam Mobile, and according to them the release would be initially in the Markets of United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, South Korea, France, Poland, Ireland and Nordic countries. Clearly US market is not in their focus right now but they would focus on more markets later on. Below is an ad about the concept which Samsung released in 2014
