Samsung could be working on a three-part foldable tablet

Samsung patent describes three-part foldable tablet

A patent that Samsung applied for more than one year ago describes a tablet that can fold up to two times, but without any detailed information.

Samsung may have a very large portfolio of devices on the market and, while they are trying to shrink some families of products and discontinue various services that did not meet the expectations, they also have an impressive amount of patents waiting to be used. One of these patents is about one year and half old and shows a slate that can fold not once, but twice. 

According to SamMobile, this patent has been recently discovered by GalaxyClub and it leaves much room for speculation. The device shown can fold up to two times, thus being able to unfold into three parts, but it is unclear if this design involves one keyboard and two screens, a screen-keyboard-touchpad combination, or something completely different.

The unofficial render of such a tablet looks very interesting but, unfortunately, there is no official information available about such a device. Maybe Galaxy Note 6 or some next-gen tablet will use such an approach, after all - there are countless possibilities, so we just need to wait and see what comes out of this patent.
