Samsung's first foldable smartphone might fold inward and not outward as it was anticipated in the past. The South Korean smartphone maker has been working on a foldable smartphone for some time now and has demonstrated flexible displays in the past. Its mobile chief DJ Koh recently confirmed that the smartphone might debut under the Galaxy Note brand next year. 

Samsung's foldable smartphone is codenamed Galaxy X and initial reports suggested that it will have an outward folding mechanism. Sammobile reports citing Business Korea reports that the Galaxy X will have an inward-folding mechanism and feature a 3R curvature. The report notes that Samsung's concepts centred on an outward folding smartphone.

Further, the report says that Samsung has been working on a foldable smartphone concept for nearly five years and its initial design involved an inward folding mechanism. However, the company steered off from that concept to design a smartphone with outward folding mechanism before coming back to square one again. It is unclear whether Samsung has ditched the plans to make a foldable smartphone with an outward folding mechanism altogether.

DJ Koh, Samsung's mobile chief confirmed that the company plans to launch a foldable smartphone next year and is currently dealing with some hurdles with the smartphone. He said the launch will be pushed back if they don't manage to overcome those hurdles. Samsung's foldable smartphone was first spotted in the form of patent images last year. It was recently certified in Korea with model number SM-G888NO and it is expected to enter production during the fourth quarter of 2017.
