While we wait for the officialization of the new folding smartphones from Samsung, a glimpse of what could be the future of the brand’s equipment emerges. Specifically, how the South Korean idealizes a device with an extendable screen.
Based on a patent that Samsung filed in Germany, this could look like the supposed Galaxy Z Slide. A device that aims to embrace one of the new trends in the market and responds to the LG Rollable that will never hit the market.
Samsung Galaxy Z Slide is a mix of LG Rollable and Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha
The patent in question was discovered by LetsGoDigital and then illustrated as your custom. Thanks to its renderings, we have a more concrete idea of what the Galaxy Z Slide will look like.
The images illustrate a device with a screen extending back on one of its sides. With this panel that covers half of the rear structure of the equipment, you will quickly notice an inspiration in the Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha.
On the opposite side is where the magic of this irreverent team resides. That is where the user can extend the screen of the Galaxy Z Slide, allowing the purchase of a desktop or larger multimedia consumption.
The South Korean will use an elastic and flexible film to support the part of the screen that will come off the main panel. This is to ensure that the screen on the Galaxy Z Slide remains fixed for convenient use.
This isn’t the first time we’ve had signs that Samsung is gearing up to approach the extendable-screen smartphone market. It has been known for some time that the South Korean has one of its departments focused on this format.
The patent that has now been discovered allows us to have a more concrete idea of how this product might look aesthetically. However, its release is unknown and is not expected to take place this year.
