The handset with model number SM-G929F appears to be a S6 Edge+ with a completely new display and is expected to reach multiple markets in January.

Samsung has big plans for 2016, although their foldable display revolution will not start on a global scale. Their "Project Valley" handset is expected to hit multiple markets in early 2016, although the US does not appear to be one of them. SamMobile's insiders revealed a few details on this upcoming device, although there is no official confirmation yet.

People familiar with the matter say that Samsung "Project Valley" will carry model number SM-G929F, which is only slightly different to the SM-G928 number of the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Considering this, it is rather safe to assume that the new device will be similar to its sibling in terms of hardware, the main difference being its display. This foldable display is expected to have a V-like shape when closed, as covered by a Samsung patent that has been spotted last month.

For a rather experimental device, the Samsung SM-G929F will reach many markets in the first wave - South Korea, United Kingdom, France, Poland, Italy, Germany, as well as the European Nordic countries. That is all for now, but we will surely hear more about this device in the coming months.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
