Patent shows an advanced Samsung tablet with a huge foldable display

Samsung has been rather busy working on smartphone and tablet designs with foldable displays for a long time, and as we exclusively revealed recently, the most recent project that could make it to the market is Project Valley, a smartphone that might have dual screens and could also be foldable. But even generally, Samsung has applied for a ton of patents surrounding foldable displays and devices, and a one-and-a-half years old patent discovered by GalaxyClub shows an advanced foldable tablet display that could fold up to two times to form a single device.

According to the patent, this device could unfold into three parts, though it’s unclear how much of it wold be the display – would the entire front side act as a huge display, or would the bottom part act as a keyboard? Naturally, this design looks too advanced to be implemented on a considerable scale anytime soon, but it gives us a good insight at the various ideas and prototypes Samsung engineers keep working on behind closed doors.

What do you think about a three-part foldable tablet?

    Agree with Sizzleboom: Looks like a device meant to act as a smartphone when folded, or a tablet when unfolded. Works for me, it would mean I would no longer need to walk around with a phone AND an eReader.

    A phone with this technology would be an instant buy for me.
