CES 2022 | Samsung Display reveals new foldable laptop, smartphone, speaker and tablet innovations with devices likes the Flex G, Flex Note, Flex S and the Flex Slidable
Samsung has showcased several foldable devices at CES 2022, including the Flex G, Flex S and the Flex Note. Seemingly, these are the same devices that the company exhibited in August at IMID 2021, a South Korean exhibition. Incidentally, Samsung has also announced a new portable projector at CES 2022 and the Galaxy S21 FE just before the conference began.
It is worth stressing that Samsung Display has exhibited these prototypes, not Samsung's Galaxy division. Hence, these displays may end up in devices produced by other companies that work with Samsung Display, rather than as part of the Galaxy brand. Still, the Flex G and Flex S build on the Galaxy Z Fold series. However, both prototypes have displays that fold into thirds, not in half.
Based on the video below, the Flex G could be the more durable of the two designs, with each display third protected by the rear side of the preceding third Samsung Display has also revealed the Flex Slidable, which resembles the Oppo X 2021. The Flex Slidable appears to have a manual slide function, though, compared to Oppo's motorised mechanism in the X 2021.
Additionally, Samsung Display has teased another laptop that has a foldable display with the Flex Note. Apparently, Samsung will release a larger model as the Galaxy Book Fold 17 this quarter. Unfortunately, it is unclear if Samsung will bring its AI speaker with a flexible OLED screen to market.
