Galaxy X’s rumored foldable display appears before official release

We've heard rumors for years that we'll be getting flexible displays that you can roll or fold up. We'll see a demo, and then we don't hear anything about it for months. Well, the more things change, the more they stay the same. We've most recently heard that the Samsung Galaxy X will be treated to a display that you will be able to fold up and stick in your pocket. And this week, Samsung will be showing off a screen that can do exactly that.

Russia gets an 80m high Samsung Galaxy S7 edge signage

Russia gets an 80m high Samsung Galaxy S7 edge signage

People usually joke about how large our smartphones are getting. Samsung, amusingly, decided to take that literally. Well, almost. In Sokot, Moscow, at the side of the road that leads to the Sheremetyevo International Airport, the around 800,000 people that pass there daily will be able to gawk at a gigantic Galaxy S7 edge. Of course, it's just a signage, but it is definitely one of Samsung's most ambitious, if not obnoxious, marketing stunt to remind people that it has a smaller version of that same curved edge monstrosity.

This would be another competitor for the likes of HBO Go, Netflix, and Hulu - though we're not yet completely convinced that the company would take the time to create such a service without already having the content bank to back it up. Word from Bloomberg is that their sources suggest "the plans are still in the early stages, and Samsung may ultimately decide not to pursue the concept" - which generally means they probably wont.

We've seen a lot of different styles and methods people have used to create mirrors, most of them in the bathroom, that also functioned as some sort of display. Almost all of them have one thing in common however. Or two, actually. They are all DIY projects, and almost none of them are commercially available. Samsung, however, might have just taken out the excitement behind those projects.

Galaxy Note 6 may be biggest (Note) release ever

This Autumn it would appear that Samsung is keeping their full attention on the Galaxy Note 6 - and not just in the USA.

Or so we're to understand. Sources suggest that instead of splitting attention between multiple devices, it'll be one phone, one release, worldwide.

UPDATE May 27, 2016: The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will likely be called the Galaxy Note 7 - update your calendars! Have a peek at additional new details below!
