Samsung plans to launch a new foldable smartphone, tentatively-named the Galaxy Z, later this year, according to IT website TweakTown.
It can be folded in a "z" shape, hence the name. China's Xiaomi and TCL have already unveiled prototypes of similar phones.
Samsung's current foldable smartphone can only be folded inward, but leaked photos suggest the new phone can be folded both ways.
Once unfolded the Galaxy Z will have a 10 to 11-inch screen, almost as big as a tablet PC. Samsung filed a patent application for "z-folding" technology in August last year.
The exact release date and price remain under wraps, but industry insiders believe the phone will hit stores in the second half of this year.
