(Mashable.com) – Picture this: A big-screened smartphone that folds in half to fit into your pocket.

Samsung could reportedly release such a smartphone as early as next January, according to SamMobile, a blog that covers Samsung and has a history of providing accurate information on new Samsung products ahead of their announcements.

The report claims a Chinese insider with knowledge of the product insists Samsung is currently testing a smartphone — so, no, it’s not a flip phone — with a foldable display. The rumored device could come in two models with 3GB of RAM, a microSD card slot and a non-removable battery; the only difference would be the processor, which could be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 and an 820 chip.
