Samsung first teased a phone that you could fold and keep in your shirt pocket back in 2013. More recently, the company has hinted that it is preparing to make the product a reality, though its mobile division chief soon dashed dreams of it arriving anytime soon.

Thankfully, we now hear more details about how the possible model, dubbed ‘Galaxy X’, might work. On 2 May, Samsung was granted several patents for the bendable design; a version of it could even be folded in thirds.
