The South Korean smartphone maker’s vice-chairman Lee Jae-Yong was reportedly spotted holding a mystery phone recently. And as per a Korean publication, he carried a smartphone with a rollable display during his visit to the company’s research and development center in Seoul, South Korea.

Samsung has been at the forefront of inventing smartphones with a big screen on the front. The handset that was spotted could be a stretchable one for which Samsung has filed a patent already. As per rumors, the six-inch phone will be able to transfer into an 8-inch tablet, thanks to the flexible panel made of plastic. However, there is no confirmation from the company or any other source.

The stretchable phone is expected to solve the problem of crease which is usually seen on foldable devices. The smartphone is expected to be launched next year.

Samsung is not the only smartphone company trying to make a stretchable phone. Even LG, which recently released the LG Wing smartphone with a secondary display with a unique form factor, has indicated that it is working on a handset that has the capability to expand. TCL has also showcased the prototype of a rollable device.

We currently have no word about the specs of the smartphone. It can have mid-range specs under the hood. There are rumours that in order to make clamshell phones more affordable, Samsung will be launching one with mid-range specs.
