New Details Reveal Samsung's Next Gamble

No comments
Samsung has been not-so-quietly ramping up its plans to launch the next step in smartphone technology: bendable devices.

The Korean tech giant has openly talked about the technology for years now. But as I’ve noted, Samsung has been increasingly covert with its future foldable plans; leading me to think that a launch is imminent.

And now, a new patent has been spotted by Patently Mobile, which indicates a possible design option for Samsung’s first foldable smartphone. The patent application depicts a relatively ‘standard’ looking smartphone design – albeit a tad square – with a display that can almost double in size if slid out.

The extended display appears to be hidden under the main display, with a mechanism on one side of the device that allows it to be slid out. This effectively doubles the device’s original display size.

This tallies with Samsung’s concept adverts in recent years, where future flexible smartphones are tubes with roll-out displays or passport-shaped tablets that fold out like a book. This patent doesn’t necessarily detail that sort of futuristic idea. Instead, with its mechanism for sliding out a second screen, this seems like a more realistic version of the rollable concept. 

I cover all aspects of technology and enterprise.
