Samsung Files Patent For Foldable Device With Three Screens
The market for foldable smartphones will soon get pretty heated up. The long-awaited devices are on the brink of commercial availability. Samsung has previously showcased a foldable smartphone & is very optimistic about it. The company expects to sell 1 million units of foldable smartphones within the first year of their launch. The company seems to fall short in the field of smartphones against Chinese OEM’s. But, the foldable technology devices might help Samsung maintain their supremacy. Recently, Samsung has filed yet another intriguing patent of a device with double fold screen.
The biggest highlight of the patent is the S-shaped foldable triple screens. The three screens unfold into to seamless tablet display. The patent reveals two hinges on either side of the middle screen that connect it with the left and right screen. The device when folded looks like a thick stack of cards. Additionally, the folded edge looks very thin unlike the previously showcased Galaxy F.
The flexible mobile/ tablet device has rounded corners and a rectangular cutout at the back. The cutout will most probably house the rear camera and a fingerprint sensor if Samsung opts for one. The patent also shows a few slots at the bottom of the middle screen. The ports include a speakerphone grill, 3.5mm audio jack and what appears to be a USB Type-C port. As this is just a patent no certain specifications are currently available. But, the device will surely be a significant technological achievement which will open gates for a lot of other industries as well.
