Samsung Foldable Phone is Truly Foldable Tablet

New patent shows the latest design of Samsung's foldable phone.

Samsung's CEO touted the foldable phone again last week in an interview. The long talked about foldable Galaxy is still in the works.

"When we deliver a foldable phone, it has to be really meaningful to our customer. The larger screen is important. If the user experience is not up to my standard, I don’t want to deliver that kind of products. Possibly when we start selling the foldable phone, it may be a niche market, but definitely, it will expand. I’m positive that we do need a foldable phone," D.J. Koh, CEO of Samsung’s mobile division.

The key design element is the folding mechanism. Consumers expect a totally flat folded device that when unfolded reveals a large screen without any visible line of the fold. LetsGoDigital spotted Samsung's latest patent on the folding phone dated September 20. It shows a that Samsung design a folding mechanism that is completely flat and doesn't look like a taco.

When Samsung is ready to reveal and release the foldable smartphone is still open. It's possible that the first version will finally be released in 2019 at the MWC 2019.
