by  , 
We have been hearing rumours about a Samsung foldable phone in the works
for morethan two years now, with the company showing off several prototypes of 
folding displaysas well.
The South Korean company in the meantime has launched Galaxy smartphones
withcurved edge displays. If a new leak is to be believed, we might finally see a
foldable Samsungsmartphone in January - with the company reportedly already
testing the smartphone.Additionally, Samsung's mysterious Galaxy View device
has been certified by theBluetooth SIG claiming it's a tablet.
According to a tipster from China (via GforGames), Samsung's foldable smartphone
hasbeen codenamed Project Valley and is being tested with two different chipsets -
Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 and Snapdragon 820. Other details tipped by the tipster
claim that the handset will feature 3GB of RAM; come with expandable storage, and
will come with an embedded battery.
It's worth noting that a previous report had claimed that Samsung was testing the 
unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset 'aggressively'. The test results were
said to determine if the chipset would be featured in next year's flagship models or not.
In other news, Samsung's mysterious Galaxy View device which was teased during 
itsIFA event and expected to the oft-leaked 18.4-inch tablet from the company has
purportedlybeen certified byBluetooth SIG with model name SM-T670. The Bluetooth
SIG listing of thetablet doesn't reveal many details; except that the Bluetooth version
will be 4.1.
To recall, Samsung just as it did at the Galaxy Unpacked event last month, teased a
newupcoming product at the end of the IFA show - what appeared to be a large tablet.
DubbedGalaxy View, the teaser was mysterious enough to hide most details but a kick
stand was \visible on the back panel. We will have to wait for Samsung to make the
announcement.
