Phones with the display on the outside could have something like a traditional smartphone form factor when closed, which could open up into a tablet-like form factor. Of course, we don't know how it's going to look and how it's going to operate exactly, but we have a couple of solid leads.

As far as when we actually might see this mythical Samsung-made folding phone, the company is holding its annual Samsung Developer Conference this week.

The device is rumored to come with a 7 inch foldable flexible display that folds in half, the device is also rumored to have a secondary display for notifications when it is folded in half. It said it will start filling orders from late December, although little is known about the firm's projected sales.

According to People magazine , Twitter users claim to have seen Demi at Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights on Friday. Demi Lovato has been spotted out for the first time since her hospitalisation.

Another Samsung official with knowledge of the matter told Reuters it will be the first time that detailed images of the new phone will be presented in public. Many are taking that as a not-so-subtle hint that the Korean tech giant is planning to unveil the long-awaited foldable phone at its annual developer conference, which takes place November 7-8 in San Francisco.

High price tags are expected to prevent foldable phones from immediately becoming big hits, and some analysts even doubt there is huge appetite for such a product. The dual-camera setup is on par with other smartphone leaders with its 20-megapixel telephoto and 16-megapixel wide-angle lenses, as well as stereo speakers and a fingerprint ID - features that define smartphones nowadays. Samsung Display is said to be planning to make around 500,000 to 1 million units of foldable display per year. That would, however, account for just 3.5 percent of projected global smartphone sales. To prevent the smartphone's foldable hinge from any possible damage in the future, Samsung may place a gear in the hinge to ensure that the phone folds slowly.
