Video shows possible successors to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Foldable range

Right now, if you want to carry around a smartphone that gives you the ability to use a larger tablet-sized screen, your only option is to buy a foldable phone like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, Oppo Find N, Huawei Mate X2, and the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2. If the latest rumors are accurate, we might even add the Pixel Fold (or Notepad) to this list. All of these phones open along the horizontal axis to reveal a larger, tablet-sized screen.

If you’ve been a loyal reader for a while, you might remember that the two Samsung and LG (before the latter abruptly exited the smartphone business) have been working on other ways to stretch a smartphone screen into a tablet-sized screen. LG might have come the closest to releasing a “rollable” device when it brought the aptly named LG Rollable to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021.
Twitter tipster ice universe (@UniverseIce) posted a tweet that contains a video showing off three new Flex OLED panels that we can only assume Samsung is developing for use in smartphones and other devices. One is a triple that folds inward twice, one is sliding, and the other appears to be a game console.

Samsung Display says at the bottom of the video that its “amazing next-gen products include foldables that fold into an ‘S’ shape or fold inward twice with two hinges, foldable laptops, and extended pull-outs. two ends.

It is unclear when this was recorded or the context of the video. Having branded them as next-gen products, don’t expect Samsung to launch a device using these form factors anytime soon. Yet it is always interesting to look to the future. Remember when foldables were the future? Now they are the present. One day, we may be able to say the same about the devices seen in the video.
