Without abandoning the idea of releasing a flexible smartphone, Samsung Electronics has found a new way to increase the useful area of the display of a mobile device without increasing its dimensions, at least in the folded state. According to the website of the US Patent and Trademark Office, in Seoul they are actively working on the device in the once popular slider form factor.
Unlike sliders popular in the middle of the zero years, Samsung's latest development has a horizontal opening mechanism and a pair of displays . An additional screen will slide over the main screen without forming an even surface in the unfolded state. Such a form factor to someone, of course, may seem inconvenient, but by the time the device comes out, everything can change.
The manufacturer himself describes his own invention as a hybrid device that combines the functionality of a smartphone and a tablet. Obviously, if Samsung completes the disclosure mechanism in such a way that both displays in the decomposed state form an even surface, the model will enjoy considerable demand among consumers for whom a large diagonal is important.
