Recently at the Society for Display Information conference held in San Diego, Nokia showed its latest foldable display for smartphones. And now it is pretty evident that the technology will be a part of new age device soon when it will get used in a coming-of-age device.
However, trying to master the display technology is another tech giant Samsung which launched the world's first curved phone called Galaxy Round last year. Soon LG, Samsung's native rival also launched its G Flex which comes with a similar display technology.
However, the battle among these brands regarding the display is not done with the curved displays but now Samsung is also reportedly said to be planning to take things to a new level, by bringing out a tablet with foldable display. More precisely, we are talking about a tri-fold tablet design. Moreover, in the recent past, a patent filing which highlighted a tablet design with similar technology was also spotted. But we are not sure whether the same design will be followed or not.
Reportedly, according to an anonymous source, it was said that the tablet would sport an 8 or a 9-inch display, which, as said earlier, can be folded. We are not yet aware whether the company will use the Android OS or its home-brewed Tizen in the tablet.
Although there are hardly any details pertaining to the tablet at the moment, an educated guess hints at an OLED full HD display. Also rumors have it that Samsung has already starting circulating prototype models, which could be seen soon in the form of a leak.
The tablet device which is considered to be at the nascent development phase could possibly make its debut in the market by 2015.
