The future of smartphones is folding. At least, that’s what Samsung thinks.

In its latest earnings report, the company says it “will continue its efforts to differentiate its smartphones by adopting cutting-edge technologies, such as foldable OLED displays.”

A Samsung representative told WIRED that “we do not have any further information” at the moment, but the company’s comments about foldable screens come in the wake of years of patent applications that could turn its advances in flexible OLED displays into a radical reinvention of the flip phone.
