[ET NEWS] Samsung Electronics is expected to test its dual-screen smartphone prototype soon, possibly a preliminary version of its upcoming foldable smartphone, dubbed Galaxy X, industry sources said on April 11.

The prototype that can be folded open 180 degrees reportedly features a pair of organic light-emitting diode display panels that are connected with a hinge in the middle. 




Sources said the Korean tech giant has already placed orders for components to produce about 2,000-3,000 units of the dual-screen phone in the first half of this year.

Samsung has been working on the so-called Project Valley that aims to develop the Galaxy X, its first foldable smartphone with a single flexible OLED screen that can be folded outward.

“Samsung seems to be testing the waters with the dual-screen device to gather ideas about its upcoming foldable phone,” an industry source said on condition of anonymity.

Samsung and its display-making arm Samsung Display have been speeding up related research and development work to roll out a limited batch of Galaxy X in the latter half of this year.

Sources said the company is still testing the waters for the phone’s mass-market launch.
