Samsung's Next Tablet will be Foldable

Latest patent by Samsung confirms a foldable tablet

We all knew that Samsung was busy in the kitchen working on a new recipe for smartphone and tablet designs that featured foldable displays for quite some time now. Then we witnessed a glimpse of what we are to expect through Project Valley or Project V that showed us the possibility of a smartphone featuring dual screens alongside being foldable.

Now, the company’s newly published patent (No. 30-0757696) has revealed itself that constitutes a tablet display which can fold up to two times, thus effectively forming a single device. There is still some discrepancy as to how the device’s display would possibly work in an unfolded form – would the entire front side act as one huge display or would one of the screen double up to form a keyboard?

It is worth noting here that the design currently looks too advanced to undergo large scale implementation, but the important thing to learn from it are the various projects Samsung engineers are working on and possibly a small glimpse into what the future holds for us. Samsung had filed this patent back in November 2013, and Korea Intellectual Property Office had it published yesterday.
