Samsung is reportedly releasing a new smartphone with a foldable display, possibly as early as January 2016. The report comes courtesy of SamMobile, a Samsung news blog with a good track record of providing accurate information.

With the Eastern markets dominated by Apple, Huawei, and Xiaomi, Samsung is making concerted efforts to reaffirm its identity with features such as the S-Pen and curved displays. The foldable display has been on Samsung’s workbench for nearly a decade; the company even showcased an early prototype of its foldable screen technology back in 2008:
