Samsung is hard at work completing a phone with a foldable screen and the device might be announced as soon as November, reports CNBC. Samsung has been working on foldable screen technology for years, but mobile chief DJ Koh told CNBC that now "it's time to deliver." Koh did not provide any hard details about the device, but said the company is working to create an experience that's different from a tablet when the phone is unfolded. Unlike old flip phones, which had a hinge and screen on one half of the device, this phone would feature a screen that bends more like a wallet so when people open it they can take advantage of a larger screen. "You can use most of the uses ... on foldable status. But when you need to browse or see something, then you may need to unfold it. But even unfolded, what kind of benefit does that give compared to the tablet? If the unfolded experience is the same as the tablet, why would [consumers] buy it?" said Koh. "So every device, every feature, every innovation should have a meaningful message to our end customer. So when the end customer uses it, [they think] 'wow, this is the reason Samsung made it'." Samsung's developer conference is scheduled for November and it's possible the company will use that event as a platform to announce its foldable phone.
