Samsung May Commercialize Flexible Screens In 2017

Foldable mobile devices may finally be on the way. A smartphone that can open up into a tablet should be interesting, but I wonder what kind of quirks we might get with these new screens.

آ…an industry source revealed Samsung’s related plans on March 31. The device will essentially be a 7-inch tablet if opened, but fold it and it becomes a 5-inch smartphone. Foldable hardware available commercially has existed in the past, but it’s been clunky at best. Users could have two separate screens that could be folded together to display only one screen. Unfolded, there could be metal separating the two screens, making for an unpleasant viewing experience.
