This year, however, there is a real probability of a phone with a foldable screen making into the market as Samsung has officially declared that foldable displays will enter large-scale manufacturing later this year. When it launches, this phone, often rumored as the Galaxy X, should mark another chapter in smartphone technology.
Sneak look into the ideas explored by Samsung
While many of us eagerly wait for the rumored Galaxy X, Samsung has been filling many patents pertaining to full-screen and foldable screen phones. In spite of the fact that recording of a patent application doesn’t ensure the launch of an item, patents do give us a sneak look into the ideas explored by Samsung.
Foldable screens offer more screen real estate them perfect for multi-window highlights. Multi-window UI case for a video call
Multi-window UI for the camera.
Foldable screens result in displays with new aspect ratios. This creates both opportunities and problems in content consumption as most of it is designed for current form factors and aspect ratios.
A foldable phone patent. One of the many designs Samsung has patented.
