We are still trying to get over the recent reports of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 devices exploding. Samsung itself is still clueless about what caused the explosions, that forced the company to suspend the Galaxy Note 7 production. This might have caused some massive losses to Samsung, but it looks like the company is not giving up on the production of new phones.
Samsung seems to be having a very ambitious plan for its future phones. According to a report published on the Galaxy Club, Samsung has filed a patent application for the development of its first foldable smartphone.
The application shows a slim Samsung phone with horizontal lines across the body. The phone can be bent at these lines.
Another folded design looks very much like a wallet, this means you can actually fold the phone same way you do with your wallet.
‘’The images we see different computer renders a handy phone that can be folded and in the lowered position provides a very elongated screen – a familiar concept, but very tangible in this kind of pictures.’’ The report reads.
The publication of a patent application was filed in April this year, and is called Flexible Electronic Device ( PDF ).
Well, at least we now have an idea of what awaits us when Samsung finally decides to unveil its first foldable smartphone. Hopefully, this will be in 2017.
