Samsung was one of the first companies to enter the foldable smartphone market and is already a reference in it. After two different approaches to this segment, its future will be even more impressive.
Who gives us this clue is Samsung Display itself, through its official blog. There we can see two illustrations depicting a foldable smartphone with three folds and one with a scrollable screen.
Samsung should bet on a foldable with three axes and a scrollable screen
The first of the illustrations published will certainly be the simplest to achieve. This equipment presents itself as a variation of the Z Fold that the brand already sells, however, it adds another folding point to your screen.
This philosophy dispenses with the need for a dedicated outdoor screen, since there will always be an exposed one. When you need more space for your tasks, just open your smartphone fully to “earn two more screens”.
The second concept is even more daring and shows us how the first Samsung smartphone with a scrollable screen could be. When closed, it will be no more than a small tube.
The magic happens when you pull the screen out to do the task you need. In the image we see an approach that reminds us of a laptop, putting some questions in the concept.
The latter should bet more on the portability of the device than on its mobility. It may not be very simple to use such a large screen without a support base for it.
Is this the future of Samsung and its folding devices?
At no time does Samsung Display say that this will be its future. However, we cannot fail to interpret these illustrations as a glimpse of what is to come.
After all, both technologies have been patented by the South Korean in the past. Therefore, the company has the necessary knowledge and authorizations to develop these technologies.
A few weeks ago, it was said that Samsung may be the first brand to launch a smartphone with a scrollable screen. After this rumor, we have this illustration that reinforces that the company’s future will pass through this technology.
