Samsung is been reported for working on a foldable Samsung Galaxy X, which is said to be unveiled next year. The manufacturer has received a couple of patents, and there are already many rumors based on it. Now the latest patent is spotted on the web which can give us a clear idea of what we can expect from the upcoming phone.
The leaked images from Patently Mobile, showcase a phone which folds horizontally, not like the previous patent which showed a phone folding in some different ways. This phone will be held in a landscape orientation, just like you a wallet.
With the help of the hinge, the device can be propped up vertically in portrait mode. The device will be turned off by folding the two sides together will automatically and while opening up the two sides will turn it on.
The phone is said to be equipped with a special hinge which will respond to the touch of a sensor. Once the sensor is activated, the device will unfold itself and transform into a smartphone. The images which are spotted as the part of the official patent documentation, show a screen in landscape mode. The images show apps on one side of the screen and app icons on the right.
In the same image, the email takes up the entire screen. Which means that users will have the option of choosing one of the images on either side of the screen and make it fill on the whole display.
The tech giant Samsung also has received a patent for a transparent smartphone screen. Just to recall, the company had unveiled a transparent television screen back in 2015, so we can imagine a transparent smartphone display will be similar, obviously which would be much smaller. The transparent screen will also allow users to use the AR without even employing a camera to incorporate the real world background used in the feature.
However, we still can't say anything on the basis of this information, as there are always fresh rumors on the web until the actual launch of the device, like the one happened with the OnePlus 6. So it is better to take these with the pinch of salt and wait for the launch.
