The debut of the Samsung Galaxy fold is right around the corner. Samsung being the aggressor that they are seems to be already working on the next foldable phone, having patented a phone that unfolds to a tablet. The approved patent shows a phone with a large flexible display. Unfold the two sides, and you now have a tablet-sized device. Fold the two sides back, and you have a display that covers the entirety of the device.
There’s no indication of when or if Samsung will ever move forward officially with this design, however, it’s a glimpse of what the future of phones will look like.
Samsung is releasing its first foldable phone on April 26 with a price tag of $1980. The Galaxy Fold features 7.3 inch QXGA+ resolution (4.2:3) and a 4.6 inch HD+ (12:9) secondary display thats used when in phone mode. The phone comes with 512GB UFS 3.0 storage, Qualcomm 7nm octa-core processor (mostly likely a snapdragon 855), 12GB of RAM, and a battery capacity of 4380 mAh. Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy Fold through AT&T and T-Mobile with a free pair of wireless earbuds. Visit the product page.
