Its for no reason Samsung was ranked 3rd in innovation in a recent global survey. The rumored Galaxy Q is a perfect example for the Korean mobile giant’s rapid strides in innovation ranks and to be on par with Apple and Google.
Imagine a foldable smartphone with dual screen HD AMOLD which can be folded out to make one large screen. Samsung could be on the verge of unveiling ‘the next big thing’ and call it Galaxy Q. Slashgrear quotes MobileGeeks that Samsung might reveal Galaxy Q in the upcoming World Mobile Congress, this February end. MobileGeeks seems to have come across some GLBenchmark tests of a device with the model number GT-B9150 and they corroborate the results to match with proposed Galaxy Q, folding phone with dual 1080p displays. A strong indicator that the phone is very much ready for global unveiling of some sorts very soon.

The rumours of such one device is being floating around for a while now with concrete details emerging last October of an announcement in early 2013.
