There are strong indications that premium smartphone manufacturer, Samsung will start producing foldable screen smartphones by next year.

The phone manufacturer gave a glimpse of the device, which is expected to cost more than $1,000 on Wednesday and will compete compete against several other flexible-screen phones.

Though, it is unclear whether the flexibility will have mass appeal, especially when the bendy devices are expected to cost more than $1,000.

The idea of a foldable device is to revive the smartphone market, which industry watchers and analysts believe is mired in an innovation lull and a sales slump. A potential catalyst is coming with the introduction of phones featuring flexible screens that can be folded in half without breaking.

That feat could make the devices more versatile for work and pleasure, by increasing screen space without making phones too big.
