Samsung appears to be working on a device that sports three 3.5-inch OLED displays. This would suggest one sits on the front when folded and the other two fold out into one large display of around 7-inches.
What isn’t clear at this stage is if the large display will have a line where the hinge folds out to join the two screens. If they were two bezel-free screens this might look near seamless.
Samsung has previously showed off roll-out screens – but these were just prototypes with no touchscreen components involved.
Samsung Galaxy X foldable phone specs and features
Since Samsung has allegedly chosen MWC 2019 to launch this phone it’ll want to be a flagship spec toting handset.
A lot of costs will go into this totally new type of device so expect high-end specs but perhaps not as new as you’d expect.
A current Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor backed by up to 8GB of RAM seems likely meaning it’ll be plenty fast enough to run multiple screens while remaining battery efficient.
The camera may suffer as a way to keep costs down meaning a single rather than a dual rear snapper – likely the 12MP camera from the current Galaxy S9.
For all those screens there will need to be a large battery so expect at least a 3,500mAh unit with fast charging, of course.
Whatever the end result, this will be an exciting new category of mobile devices and the potential future of smartphones and tablets.
