Next to its foldable devices, Samsung seems to be working on a new Flip Cover. As revealed by a patent recently filed in Korea, Samsung plans to add an e-ink display to the next-gen cover for its flagships.

A recently discovered patent by Samsung describes what appears to be the next-gen Flip Cover. The most visible change is the introduction of an e-ink display, thus allowing the user to get more information without having to open the cover.

The Flip Cover currently available on the market comes with a few transparent cutout slots for spotting notifications displayed by the handset inside. The patent that was filed at the Korean Intellectual Property Office shows a Flip Cover with a larger window and an e-ink screen, but there are no other details to talk about at this stage.

Considering the fact that this Flip Cover does not come with any special hardware parts, it would not be a surprise to see it surface in about a month, next to the Galaxy S8 flagship at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. We will keep an eye on this story and let you know as soon as we find out anything new, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
