Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is still nowhere to be seen, but Samsung has a new patent that reveals another way to turn their phone into a tablet.
Renders from LetsGoDigital shows a Samsung patent where its hidden screen can be pulled out from the side of the device, turning it into a tablet. So, instead of a foldable solution, Samsung may be taking a new approach to preventing the problems that are caused by folding its smartphone screen.
Unfortunately, the patent did not reveal how the new approach actually works. For all we know, it could be slide out, roll out or even be a layer that is hidden behind the primary screen. However, we did notice that the phone patent sports dual front cameras.
As it’s only a patent, it might be possible that it will never reach us consumers, though it does look like a promising solution to the easily broken Galaxy Fold. We’re not going to get our hopes up because we know it’ll just be another pricey device not everyone can afford.
