Samsung currently has a lot going for its cause. From the new Samsung Galaxy S5 to the new Gear fit smartband, there have been some notable releases from the company this year. Now it seems like the next targeted area for the company is in the foldable technology sector.
According to reports, Samsung is said to launch a foldable tablet by early 2015. And interestingly enough, the report has emerged just a day after reports made rounds on the Internet talking about two foldable displays from Nokia.
As expected, reports out of the Korean media have showed off screen shots of a Samsung IP which showcases a smartphone with a tri-fold flexible display. Apparently, Samsung is working on an 8 to 9-inch tablet which can be folded into two, after which the device adopts the form factor of a regular smartphone.
Apparently, prototypes of the device are already said to exist, "with the company working hard to take things to the next (commercial oriented) stage. If all goes as planned, such a product could allegedly make its way to the market in early 2015," Android Authority states.
As of now, there are still a few concerns as to how Android will work with the foldable display type in both folded and unfolded types. Samsung is also, most likely, expected to custom build a few apps from the ground up to make use of the three separate displays, and also to make use of the folding design.
More details on the foldable tablets from Samsung is expected to arrive in the upcoming months. Stay tuned to GizBot.
