New Foldable Phones: Samsung Shares Illustration Showing New Foldable Phones for the Future


Samsung company has released a couple of illustrations that give us a sneak peek at the future of foldable phones. The South Korean company has been developing foldable displays under the Samsung Display division for some years. In February last year, Samsung also started its journey as a foldable smartphone maker and unveiled the Galaxy Fold as the first commercially available smartphone that can be transformed into a 7.3-inch tablet, thanks to its flexible display. However, after bringing the initial range of foldable phones to the market, Samsung may have something different to showcase in 2021.

Viewed by SamMobile, Samsung Display has shared pictures featuring new foldable smartphone concepts on its Korean blog. One of the publicly shared scenes shows a tri-fold display on the phone that, when folded, becomes identical to the original Galaxy fold. It gives a smartphone interface on one side and a tablet-like experience on the other side.

TCL showed off a concept phone carrying a tri-fold display in March this year. Some patents also surfaced in the recent past showing ongoing development towards the new foldable form-factor.


In addition to viewing the triangular display, Samsung has shared another illustration on its Korean blog which showcases an instrument with a rollable display. It comes from a cylindrical rod and provides an enhanced productivity experience.

Samsung executives suggested the development of rollable smartphone concepts in the past. Similar to Samsung, its fellow-Korean competitor LG is projected to unveil its rollable smartphone in June next year.
