Is foldable screen technology on the way?

Rumours about the next generation of screen technology are rife

We've been patiently waiting for the next wave of exciting innovation from smartphone manufacturers for some time. iPhone, Samsung and HTC have been building upon technology that is tried and tested for quite a while, but it looks as though something truly innovative could be on the way next year.  

Korean site "ETNews" is reporting the device will look like a regular 5-inch smartphone, slightly smaller than the new Samsung Galaxy S7. When unfolded, the device's screen will expand to 7-inches, larger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy S7. 

While it is not exactly clear how the folding screen will work, it's no secret that Samsung have been looking to develop this type of technology for some time.
