Samsung's R&D section has been hard at work playing with foldable display technology, but it looks like we are getting closer to this entering the consumer space. An official for Samsung Display has said: "The industry believes that the commercialization of foldable smartphones will be possible in 2016". We should expect Samsung to unveil a foldable smartphone sometime in 2016.

LG is also planning to reach into the foldable smartphone market, and while it might be a year later than Samsung, 2017 isn't too far away now. LG still has its flagship G4 smartphone set to arrive in the coming months, and after the great sales of its G3 smartphone - 59.6 million units shipped - LG is positioning itself well.
