SEOUL (Alliance News) - South Korean tech giant Samsung is reportedly working on a foldable smartphone.

According to two new reports from The Korea Herald and Etnews, Samsung is working on a prototype smartphone with a fold in the middle. The report says that the company has already begun production on the device and plans to make between 2,000 and 3,000 units in the first half of 2017.

"Samsung seems to be testing the waters with the dual-screen device to gather ideas about its upcoming foldable phone," an anonymous source told The Korea Herald.

"Since foldable products draw the most attention in markets recently, it is important to understand demands and ideas regarding new UX [user experience] through this prototype. This is part of Samsung Electronics' effort to introduce foldable smartphones as ultra-premium products."

Rumours about Samsung developing a foldable smartphone have been around since 2008.
