Some years ago, Samsung was one of the companies that produced foldable devices, with Nokia, Motorola and Sagem few of the companies that made a name for themselves in the category. It’s long gone, but it seems Samsung may have something for us, a foldable Smartphone.
It has been pretty hard to produce foldable Smartphones as the screens may not allow them to be folded. Many companies are putting emphasis on improving the quality of their screens, so a foldable Smartphone screen may be the least of their concerns when it was possible to still improve the quality of the screen on the non-foldable devices visit homepage.
The South Korea-based tech company has filed a patent with the Korean Intellectural Property Office for a Smartphone that could be folded in half seamlessly. The device was also said to be having a second screen on the outside, making it pretty easy to use the Smartphone without flipping it continuously.
The screen was also said to have a semiautomatic powered folding action as one of the options. Many may conclude that patents do not always lead to actual products, and I would agree with that. But this particular device is of interest as there have been reports that Samsung has been working on bendable OLED screens, so we can conclude that there is a 39% possibility that this will end up being an actual product.
Samsung’s engineers have been pretty innovative, they are actually some of the most innovative in the world, and it’s cool to see what they are thinking of working on. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has a curved screen, and the same can be said of the Galaxy S7 Edge, so who says foldable screens can’t be done?
Samsung is now working on its Samsung Galaxy S8 which is most likely the next device it will release; if you were thinking about the Note 7, your fears are credible. Samsung has been working round-the-clock to ensure that there are no mess-ups on its next release, so let’s just keep our fingers crossed until then.
