It seems the folding smartphone arena needs to make space for another contender, according to regular Samsung leaker Max J, AKA Samsung News.

He reports that Sony is working on a new folding phone with a “Nautilus Design”, attaching a 2016 video showing a roll-up Sony display being demonstrated.

The specs will reportedly include:

  • 3220mAh
  • SM7250 SoC
  • LG Display
  • Nautilus Design
  • 10x Zoom Camera

The retail models may feature an updated Snapdragon 855 Soc processor and Qualcomm X50 Modem.

Sony would not be the only one exploring the roll-up smartphone design, with Samsung showing off such a concept some years ago.

Sony’s device is reportedly heading for market at the end of the year or early next year.
