Samsung hopes to have two new phones on the market next year, both featuring bendable displays. Constructed from OLED screens, the phones will include one that folds like a compact, and another, larger model that unfolds to become a tablet. Samsung has been a leader in OLED panels and is a pioneer in innovative screen formats, an example being its line of Edge smartphones. Bendable screens have been on the company’s agenda for awhile, having featured in a video from 2013’s CES, which you can view below.

The South Korean tech giant also supplies products to other companies, and most recently signed a deal to provide OLED panels to Apple. If Samsung is able to release these screens early next year, the company will be able to get a head-start on Apple’s iPhone using OLED screens that may release later in 2017.
