Foldable phones have been a big topic for the past few months especially with the presence of a few patents that were filed pertaining to the said technology. Now, it looks like fans are going to know more about an actual foldable phone prototype in the form of a Samsung phone. Recent reports suggest that the company may be preparing something interesting for its Mobile World Congress event this year.

Samsung To Showcase A Foldable Phone

The most recent report pertaining to Samsung's foldable phone says that the company will be showing off a prototype at the MWC later in the month. However, the catch is that not everyone may be able to see it first-hand. Apparently, the said device will be exhibited in a private room and only a selected set of individuals will be allowed to see it.

Additionally, it was revealed by some industry sources that the firm will also showcase a few other display technologies at the MWC. This is for Samsung to be able to predict how the market will respond to them. It was said that inward and outward folding devices will be showcased. However, the latter is more likely to end up commercializing.

Sam Mobile also says that Samsung could be using its MWC demo as an opportunity to pitch the foldable smartphone display technology to other smartphone manufacturers. Take note that the company isn't only making money from its smartphones. Its display manufacturing subordinate referred to as Samsung Display is also one of the company's big money-maker.

Samsung MWC 2017 Conference

Samsung is expected to hold an event this February 26. Reports and teasers suggest that the company will be showcasing the Galaxy Tab S3 during the said show. The Samsung Galaxy S8, on the other hand, might wait a few more weeks before getting launched. The company has actually shared at an earlier time that the S8 won't be making its way to the MWC event. Nevertheless, there's also a good chance that Samsung might at least reveal the flagship's teaser at the Mobile World Congress.
