A concept images reportedly showing a foldable Samsung smartphone.

Samsung is still in a midst of launching its new and well-received Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, but the company may already be making prototypes of a novel, foldable design for a future smartphone.

South Korean news outlet The Investor reported that Samsung may soon produce a dual-screen phone prototype that folds along a hinge, then move on to a prototype with a single, foldable screen by the end of 2017.

Mobile device companies have been working on folding and rolling screen tech for years now, including Samsung competitors LG and Sony, but which will be first to create a consumer product is still an open question.
