Samsung has been developing foldable OLEDs for a long time, and several reports in the past few months suggested that Samsung is working on a foldable phone (or maybe two?), to be released in 2017.

The so-called Project Valley is still under development at Samsung. Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications Business President Koh Dong-jin says that Samsung aims indeed to roll out foldable smartphones in the future - but the company "needs more time" to actually bring this to market. Interestingly he said that the major challenges are in the software and user interface - perhaps the development of the foldable OLED display itself is nearing completion.
