Samsung Unveils New Bi-Folding Phone Concept

Samsung has unveiled the concept for its new foldable phone and it looks pretty impressive:


Samsung Display showed off the S-Foldable, which has two folding points and can go from a decent-sized tablet to something that could fit easily in your pocket in seconds.

The phone screen can measure up to 7.2 inches if fully unfolded and is not too dissimilar to Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 2 - except that it has an extra fold.

In a statement, Samsung said: "The 'S-foldable', which Samsung Display showed as a video, is a product that can confirm the world's best OLED technology, and is a multi-foldable product that can be folded twice inside and outside.

"When the screen is opened to the maximum, the size is 7.2 inches, and it is a concept that can be used like a smartphone when folded twice and like a tablet when fully opened."

Rumours about Samsung creating a double-folding phone have been swirling for months, after the company filed for a range of patents covering tech that can be folded twice.

Although foldable phones are nothing new, this would be the first bi-folding model, making it a bit special - not to mention the fact it looks super futuristic, which always gets a big thumbs up from me.

And it seems as though Samsung has big plans for its foldable devices, with Nikkei Asia reporting that the company hopes to sell as many of its foldable smartphones as it did the Galaxy Note.

CEO Koh Dong-jin, in charge of Samsung's mobile division, said back in March: "We are making our best efforts to increase production of foldable smartphones.

"For the foldable phones, the display matters the most.

"We resolved considerable parts of problems [in securing display supplies], although we still cannot produce as many foldable phones as other smartphones."

The advert also featured a rollable - or 'slidable' - piece of tech, which also boasts the impressive OLED display.

For now, the phone - and everything else in the advert - is just at the concept stage, meaning there's no knowing when, or even if, they'll become available to buy.
