New Delhi: South Korean tech giant Samsung is reportedly working on a phone with both foldable and rollable designs. Titled “electronic device capable of folding and sliding operations”, the patent describes a device that seemingly goes out of its way to bend a foldable display in every possible way.
The handset does not only folds on one side but is also capable of sliding out, probably when triggering specific kinds of actions, giving a wider screen real-estate for content consumption, gaming and much more.
The phone will house a hinge mechanism and a motor for it to fold and push out a rollable screen. Samsung is also reportedly planning to launch its next-gen Fold4 around Q3 of 2022 with an improved under-display camera (UDC) on both the internal and external screens.
The overall primary camera setup is also getting an upgrade to bring the Galaxy Z Fold4 on par with the camera quality offered by the current flagship in the market, reports GizmoChina.
The upcoming Fold 4 is also expected to come with a hinge that might reduce weight. The new hinge will also bring improved water resistance and a dust-resistant certification.
