Samsung could launch Galaxy Q folding smartphone

A bigger screen, a better camera and more powerful. That seems to be the formula for smartphone evolution these days. But Samsung could be about to go slightly more leftfield with an upcoming launch known currently as the Samsung Galaxy Q.

If initial reports are true, it seems that the Q could be a dual-display smartphone. Not an old school flip phone with outer screen, this is a phone with a 1080p set of two displays that fold out into one flowing screen. Intrigued? We certainly are.

The talk comes from the MobileGeeks site, which has found a GL Benchmark result suggesting such a thing. The technology is certainly something Samsung has played with, having shown off an early prototype back in 2008 and subsequently at a trade show in 2010.

The finished device is said to come with two displays at 5.3-inches each that fold out into one single larger display. Phone meets tablet perhaps? It's also said to feature a dual-core 1.7GHz Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB RAM, an 8 megapixel camera on the back, 2 megapixel camera on the front and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.

Samsung is rumoured to be launching up to six devices in the first half of 2013, but if the Q launches (Galaxy S IV aside), it will undoubtedly be the pick of the bunch. Or at least, the most newsworthy launch at the next big Samsung event.
