For almost a decade, smartphones have had the same slate form factor, but a report from Bloomberg says Samsung is gearing up to change the design of smartphones as we know them. Samsung is reportedly preparing to launch two new smartphones next year—one with a rollable display that users could unfurl to as large as eight inches when they need a bigger screen. The second new form factor is a flip-phone smartphone that allows users to bend the smartphone in half like a cosmetic compact. You can check out a 2014 video Samsung put out showing concepts of the two devices below.
