The reality is that sophisticated smartphones have appeared and will not go anywhere. They have not undermined the market and will be in demand for a long time only by those who are willing to pay more for strange devices, regardless of the existing problems with reliability and durability.
As part of SID Display Week 2021, the South Korean giant will show fundamentally new sophisticated devices. It is expected to be a folded 17-inch tablet and a flexible smartphone with a 7.2-inch screen that can fold in two places, and the structure itself resembles the letter Z or S. We assume that in a particular folding scenario, the lower half of the screen can take on itself features a touch keyboard.
Among the new products may be the Samsung Slidable Display or a horizontally stretchable screen, which in its normal state is a smartphone. If you need a larger display for watching videos and different content, you can stretch the display.
Also, promise an announcement of UPC (Under Panel Camera) technology, which is nothing more than a camera under the display. It is rumoured that Samsung engineers still managed to achieve an acceptable level of light transmission at the location of the selfie module. Commercial products with new technologies will not be presented. The company will only demonstrate and talk about new research and possibly show prototypes.
Samsung has come up with an unusual smartphone that bends in different directions
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Samsung a patent for a display device. This concise name hides an exciting smartphone equipped with a flexible screen.
When expanded, the gadget looks like a regular monoblock mobile phone. Users will be able to interact with the big screen traditionally.
As can be seen from the patent illustrations, the design provides double lines in the upper and lower areas of the device. The upper or lower section can be closed, and the image is reflected on the rest of the display.
If necessary, you can fold both sections simultaneously - in this state, and the screen will be completely hidden. In addition, according to the idea of the South Korean giant, parts of the smartphone will be able to rotate 180 degrees both forward and backward, which will allow you to use different modes of use.
However, as is often the case with non-standard designs, the device shown in the images now exists only in patent documents. It is not clear whether Samsung is going to implement this idea.
