    Could be! According to this article, Samsung Mobile boss DJ Koh said that if they can smooth out a few wrinkles in the engineering, we'll see a flexible-screen Note in 2018!

    I know we've been talking about this on and off for years - now that we're actually close to seeing it on the market, what are your thoughts about it?

    I'm trying to think of what the advantage would be to a flexible screen at the scale of a smart phone.

    As a out in the field business woman, folding up tells me I could carry in my pocket, thereby one less thing in my hand, I like the idea a lot. 😎

    Luna, imagine having a phone with a 6' diagonal screen... but then being able to open it up into a 12' tablet. Combine that with the S Pen, dual camera and the Snapdragon 845 processor (using a 7nm process), I think that would beat the Note 8's record sales numbers!

    Hmmm, sounds like they're looking for the elusive phabletop (phone-tablet-laptop) that can be a "Jack of all trades, master of none."

    I don't think I'm on the bandwagon quite yet.

    Phabletop! Hurry up and trademark that! Do you have any idea how much money George Lucas has made on the term 'droid'???

    These are not the phones you're looking for. ;)
