A patent lately filed by Samsung reveals that the corporate could be engaged on a telephone with a roll-up show. The patent was initially filed again in November 2018, and it solely resurfaced once more final week on Let’s Go Digital.
The patent describes a smartphone with a show that may “roll up” to create a fair bigger display floor. It options one thing like a 21:9 show, which is tucked contained in the telephone’s physique that may be unrolled to extend the world – probably by a few inches or so.
The highest portion of the show has a bezel with all of your typical smartphone sensors, which might slide up alongside the show to accommodate the additional display space.
It’s unclear precisely how the unit would transfer or how the sliding mechanism would work – whether or not by an computerized system or by manually rolling the display upwards – or what it will allow the machine to do. Nonetheless, in contrast to the Galaxy Fold, this one undoubtedly appears to be like extra pocket-friendly.
Be aware that that is only a patent for the machine, and the precise telephone might come out trying utterly completely different if it ever makes it into manufacturing.
