Pretty soon, Samsung might earn the reputation of a company that folds. In a good way of course. It has just revealed its prototype for the first foldable phone, expected to actually hit markets next year, but it has been playing around with foldable concept far longer than that. And while it may have already settled on a design for its first foldable product, it might not exactly be its best idea yet. That may come from a recently published patent showing a tablet-sized device folding in three parts to form a rather thick phone.
