Samsung teases the Galaxy Note 7 edge.

Thanks to PhoneArena who has obtained from private sources the Samsung teaser above pictured, it says clearly WRITE ON THE EDGE OF SOMETHING GREAT showing the S-Pen over the edge of the phablet..
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 edge will probably feature a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen, carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 823 SoC is under the hood with a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. 6GB of RAM is on board, and the 12MP rear snapper found on the Galaxy S7 is used on the handset. That camera comes with an f/1.7 aperture.

Foldable Smartphone WAR is about to start in 2017. Samsung first foldable phone is around the corner, says CEO.

3 years ago  Samsung showed the first foldable screens at CES 2013. There is a video ad since then showing 2 foldable smartphones concepts: phone to tablet and a phone with rollable screen that was also presented early this year.
Samsung’s first foldable phone is “right around the corner” according to Gregory Lee, President and CEO of Samsung Telecommunications America.
Samsung is not the only company that will make foldable smartphones. Recently Lenovo presented a slim smartphone that bends around your wrist like a smartphone, and a tablet that folds in half to convert it on a phone.

Speaking at the Future:Mobile conference, and reported by Recode, Lee said that the new bendable phones are incoming.
Explaining the delay behind getting them to market he continued, “it just has been very difficult to manufacture at a reasonable cost”. 
Rumors are saying Samsung will unveil more foldable smartphones concepts this August wh…
