People close to the industry are saying that Samsung has not finalized the design till now because they have a secondary plan also. Some sources are saying that Samsung is also working to design a curved battery. If they succeed, it will help the makers to further reduce the size of the smartphone which will make the gadget handier after the fold. Samsung does not have any issues to include the flexible OLED display here as they are already designing it.
Samsung has codenamed the device “Winner” as per the rumoured information. The company may launch this model as a limited release gadget.
