Could the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S8 have a foldable YOUM display? If the latest rumors are true, then it is entirely possible. Even if the new device ends up being something outside of the Galaxy S series of products, Samsung is rumored to be working on a new device called Project Valley (or Project V for short).
Project V is supposedly a dual-screen (and probably foldable) display device. Here's a quote with a few more details,
This smartphone is codenamed Project Valley (it’s also called Project V) and is in extremely early stages of development, and its ambitious nature means it might even be terminated at any time, something that happens with a lot of such projects. The device will support multiple gestures for switching between its two screens, and the fact that it is codenamed Project V/Valley suggest it could be a foldable device (the letter V is similar in shape to what a valley would look like, and it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to think the phone could feature two sides that fold together.)
Rumors earlier this year had hinted that Samsung could release foldable devices by 2016, and if our information is accurate, the Korean giant could indeed be hard at work on meeting that deadline.
Ultimately, this should probably not come as much of a shock. Since Samsung first teased bendable flex-display tech many years ago, you have to assume they have been working hard to make it mass market viable. Obviously it has taken them longer to develop than they realized, but that doesn't mean it isn't close.
What do you guys think? Would you like to see the return of a flip phone, only this time it will be a foldable flex-tech, touch-screen smart device?
