Samsung tipped to launch foldable Galaxy Q smartphone at MWC

Is Samsung preparing to dazzle with a foldable, dual-display smartphone at MWC this year?

That's what the latest speculation seems to indicate, after a German site linked a GLBenchmark for a device with the model number Samsung GT-B9150, to persistent rumours regarding a 'Galaxy Q' handset featuring two flexible, Full HD AMOLED screens.

In addition to showcasing Samsung's shape-shifting Youm display technology across two 5.3in screens, the Galaxy Q is said to feature a dual-core Exynos 5250 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, a powerhouse 3,500mAh battery, an 8-megapixel primary camera, and 2GB of RAM.

While Samsung's exact plans for MWC are still shrouded in mystery, the Korean firm certainly seems to be keeping itself busy on the product development front.

Though only the Galaxy Note 8.0 has been confirmed for MWC, the Korean firm is thought to be nearly ready to launch its next flagship handset, the Galaxy S4, while the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab 3 are also likely in the pipeline.

Indeed, a further GLBenchmark broke cover recently pointing to a tablet codenamed Santos. The GT-P3200 is thought to sport an 8in-plus display, run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and feature a processor clocked at 1.5GHz - specifications that would be a nice fit for a newer member of the Galaxy Tab family.
