The hype has been real for several years. Samsung or LG would always set up a little display showing off moving pictures on a thin filament of bendable material and we’re all left with the impression that a foldable smartphone would be so close down the road.

Well, it’s 2016 and we’re only getting just a whiff of a Galaxy X coming along the way … for next year.

But a Chinese leaker has come into contact with an OPPO prototype of a foldable smartphone. Supposedly, it’s been a work-in-progress since August 2015 and it was only in February that engineers started energizing that flexible display. The device has VOOC charging and ColorOS, but it’s still not ready for action and we can bet that it’ll be a while before it ever will be.

Alas, it may be the Galaxy X that ends up delivering the goods after all. Who knows?
