Apple might excite people with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X smartphones, but Samsung is the company that is out-innovating the South Korean electronics giant right now.

Samsung has teased that it will be releasing a bendable smartphone in 2018, with Koh Dong-jin - president of mobile business at Samsung Electronics, said that there are multiple problems to overcome first. Dong-jin explained: "As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year. When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product".

The problems that Samsung faces to reach a bendable smartphone include the company getting to the point of mass-producing a foldable smartphone that is not just thin, but feature-packed isn't easy. We should expect to hear more about Samsung's plans soon, where I'm hoping to see something shown off at CES 2018 in January.
