After what seems the better part of a half-a-decade of unofficial rumours, Samsung has started to tease its long in development foldable display smartphone.

While Samsung is holding a developer conference in November where its foldable phone could possibly be unveiled. Thanks to SamMobile, who spotted a particular listing in the app, it's believed that Samsung is to launch an Android Pie Beta Program this week, likely for owners of newer Galaxy devices.

"First, Samsung needs to show foldable smartphones are commercially viable". The event invite posted on Twitter already gives a clear hint at a foldable smartphone.

Royole Corporation revealed the world's first folding phone called FlexPai which can be used as either a phone or a tablet. Apparently, Samsung has told a few Korean media outlets that it will unveil the phone's UX at the event. The phone has been codenamed as Valley and victor also. Separately, The Bell reports that Samsung has confirmed that the phone's foldable display is finished.

Expectations that the phone itself will be on display are, however, low.

Samsung recently filed a trademark for the Samsung Infinity brand and now more trademarks under this brand have been discovered. Folding an OLED display puts it under stress and will eventually damage it.

The device comes in three different configurations 6GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, and 8GB+512GB RAM/ROM with internal storage expandable up to 256GB with a MicroSD card.

There have been teasers from all the large smartphone manufacturers, notably LG and Samsung, that this is something they are working on. So, we are not sure if it'll be available globally or will be introduced in select markets only, if it ever gets announced.
