Samsung patents a Galaxy S with a flexible folding screen

Renders Patente Samsung Galaxy S pantalla flexible

Samsung is the undisputed leader in flexible screen space, positing itself as the first company to venture into the territory of folding smartphones with the Galaxy Fold, first in phablet format, later clamshell, and even with the rumors of a rollable model. . But it seems the company doesn’t want to stop here, looking for other ways to leverage its current dominance in con the patent for a new premium product for its Galaxy S range.

This is how they have shared it since LetsGoDigital, who have recently found a new idea the company is working on for a «electronic device with expandable internal space»Which was published on October 15, 2020 by WIPO. In it we can see a device of normal dimensions that hides a flexible screen that can be tilted from the top, protruding from the main frame creating a small curvature and a resonance space on the phone that will allow «better sound«.

With still some unknowns about its structure and final components, as the patent itself points out, this flexible screen would be made of some kind of plastic polymer. Although Samsung would be saving the possibility of making any changes in this area, maintaining the possibility of targeting a more premium terminal, with its consequent price increase, using the ultra-thin glass of the Galaxy Z Flip.

Although more surprising is the fact that this phone would have the holder for the stylus. And it is that at the moment the Samsung S Pen has only been compatible with the Galaxy S and Gamazy Note, leaving aside the current flexible screen models. Although for some time we have seen how rumors began to emerge about the fact that Samsung was working on it.

The idea is obviously a gimmick that would have other side effects, like reduced durability and less resistance to water and dust, although without a doubt it is a much less aggressive flexibility than what we can see in current terminals. In addition, it is undoubtedly an innovative option that will distinguish the next Galaxy S from the rest of the increasingly clonal options on the market.

As always, it should be noted that despite the fact that it is an already approved patent, this does not imply that we will necessarily see these devices. And it is that only time can confirm whether it is a real Samsung product, or just a concept of tests.
