While other manufacturers are only taking their first steps in the field of flexible smartphones, Samsung is already thinking about
What is known
Patently Mobile noticed that the Korean companyfiled patent display, which can be increased on the go. The document says that the user can control the smartphone in two modes - open and closed. In the first case, the device looks more classical, and in the second, the gadget receives an elongated display with a larger diagonal.
Judging by the patent, a similar gadget will beuse flexible displays that curl in closed mode and spin in open mode. Yes, no sliders or interchangeable screens. The user will be offered to control the size of the display using a movable panel on the back of the device.
The patent also refers to a sensor thatwill determine the size of the display and adjust the "coordinates of the touch input." Along with this, the document mentions gesture and brightness sensors, a gyroscope, an atmospheric pressure sensor and a biometric sensor.
With a new design, Samsung technically canwill release a smartphone with two display sizes at the same price. Or the company will begin to produce different models with expanding screens. In any case, this will give Samsung a competitive advantage. In addition, the concept of the device is not limited to a smartphone and can be applied to tablets, car displays, and so on.
Still, it’s worth noting that this is only a patent,which may not live up to the production line. In addition, Samsung still has not figured out with flexible displays in folding smartphones and only comprehends a niche. The company has just released the first version of the Galaxy Fold, and it is rumored that it plans to release a second model in 2020 along with a flexible “clamshell smartphone”.</ p>
