Samsung's cancelled 'Project V' foldable phone from years ago shows up in leaked photos

Recently, ZTE's foldable Axon M made a bit of a wave by being released with not one, but two 5.2" 1080p displays. It was a bold move, but it obviously hasn't sold well. It looks like Samsung experimented with the same idea back in 2015-2016, ultimately choosing to scrap the project. But some leaked images of it, dubbed "Project V," have recently surfaced, showing what could have been.

But YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss got his hands on a prototype of the Doogee Mix 4, and it's certainly striking, with teeny tiny bezels on all sides of the display and a sliding design to hide the earpiece and front-facing camera.

Unreleased NVIDIA Shield Portable 2 found at pawn shop in Canada

The original NVIDIA Shield Portable (just called 'NVIDIA Shield' at first) was released back in 2013, and is still a very unique device.
