Foldable displays have been around for a few years now, but we only managed to see them demoed at various technology shows and nothing more. However, most big brands in the industry described foldable devices in multiple patents already, and Samsung has done even more.

In a recently discovered design patent, Samsung described a handset with an expandable, slide-out display. Thanks to this design approach, the handset would allow its users to slide the display in when using various basic functions, and to slide out when gaming or watching video content.

Another smartphone display described in a patent features a center hinge on the side that allows it to bend in half. In the end, such a handset would allow multiple modes of use in a similar manner to the existing convertible tablets.

At this year's Mobile World Congress, Samsung is expected to show a prototype foldable handset that could be accompanied by a foldable tablet that features a built-in keyboard and stand.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
