DJ Koh, Samsung's Mobile Communications Business president speaks at a Samsung product launch event in Brooklyn

INTERNATIONAL – Samsung is reportedly busy working on a foldable smartphone prototype of which has supposedly been in the works for years now.

In a tweet, the company teased a big reveal of the device or at least a prototype version of it, describing its upcoming developer conference as “the crossroads between the present and the future” and showing a subtle graphic of two lines unfolding into a right-facing arrow.

Samsung Chief executive DJ Koh mentioned in an interview with CNBC that the product could arrive as soon as this year, but we still haven’t seen any hardware.

In the interview with CNET, the executive said that while unfolded the device will offer the functionality of a tablet complete with multi-tasking and a big screen, but can then be folded into a smartphone.

Other suggestions believe that the company might even launch the Galaxy S10.

On the 7th of November is Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco and reports are stating that the company could potentially show the device’s software interface or actual hardware.
