Samsung Display heavily points to Samsung's next-generation foldables, rollables including rumored tri-fold in official images
Samsung Display, the division of the company responsible for making its Super AMOLED and QLED displays, has released several tantalizing images of new display technology that it will showcase at this week’s Society for Information Display (SID) congress. The new display technology heavily points to the next generation of foldable devices we can expect to see introduced by Samsung's mobile division in the near future (as well as from other OEM’s who may buy these panels from Samsung for their own devices).
Among the images release that immediately catches the eye is a new tri-folding panel housed in an attractive generic design. Even though it is clearly not the design Samsung’s mobile division will use, it is a clear indication of how it will look and function. Samsung had already been rumored to release a tri-folding design in 2022 and this new image all but confirms the rumor its mobile division is working with the company's multi-folding Super AMOLED technology.
Also seen in the newly released images from Samsung Display is a large 17-inch foldable tablet-like device that uses a 4:3 display aspect ratio. When unfolded, it can function like a monitor and looks similar in approach to the yet-to-be-released Microsoft Surface Neo -- the key difference, however, being that Samsung uses a single foldable panel. Also revealed for the first time is the rollable display technology we expect to see in the rumored Samsung Rollable that has also previously been rumored to launch in 2022.
If you’ve been wondering just what these rumored Samsung devices were going to look like, Samsung Display has just revealed everything but the final design. While rumors had pointed to devices coming with the new technology next year, it now seems that we might see them arrive sooner rather than later.
