While we’e known for quite some time, that Samsung is working on a top-secret foldable smartphone named ‘Project Valley’, today we have got first looks at the project, via a leak posted on Weibo account by a user.
A possible foldable smartphone project development first came into light, when in an interview with Business Korea, a Samsung executive said,
The industry believes that the commercialization of foldable smartphones will be possible in 2016.
However little was known about this under-cover ‘Project Valley’ smartphone, until today.
As per the leaks posted by Weibo user, the device will have 3GB of RAM, an SD card slot for expandable storage, a non-removable battery, and either a Snapdragon 620 or Snapdragon 820 chip. The leak also suggested at a January 2016 ‘unveiling’, which shouldn’t however be mistaken with start of sales.
This however, isn’t the first time we have heard of Samsung’s ‘Project Valley’ or ‘Project V’. Sammobile in May, had reported that the Korean giant was working on a super secretive, foldable smartphone initiative, which has been code-named ‘Project Valley’ or ‘Project V’. There was however neither any photos nor any specs leaked with that report.
Foldable tech has been gaining significant traction with Korean manufacturers. We earlier had reports from VentureBeat of LG planning to unveil a foldable television, though it is still four or five years away from an actual unveiling.
