Samsung has spent about a decade working on the first foldable smartphone. The South Korean company has now developed two types of these phones, which have been around for several generations. But what kind of future does Samsung envision, and what could phones and tablets look like in a couple of years?
Samsung Display received the “Display of the Year” award from SID (Society for Information Display) for its Eco2 OLED technology. This is the most prestigious award in the screen industry because every year, it is awarded only to those screens and related products that “have the most significant technological achievements or outstanding characteristics.”
Eco2 OLED debuted with the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 phone. SID honored the screen, i.e., the screen technology of this phone, for the significant reduction in power requirements and contribution to enabling UPC technology (Under Panel Camera).
However, Samsung’s path is just beginning. How does Samsung envision smartphones and tablets with Eco2 OLED screens in the future?
The South Korean company has released an exciting video that contains the company’s vision for the future of phones and tablets. These are pretty ambitious concepts – from a triple folding tablet called Flex S to vertically and horizontally sliding hybrids of smartphones and tablets. Samsung called this video “Meet the amazing tech verse in Samsung Display.”
Unfortunately, there is no specific time frame when we could see that the ideas in the mentioned video are realized. Still, Samsung’s most challenging task was actually creating the first foldable smartphone so that things could work more efficiently in that sense in the future. However, it is speculated that it will not take long, but Samsung is expected to bring such phones and tablets in the next few years.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip lines have been around for years now and are recording pretty good sales results.
