It looks like Samsung has high hopes on the foldable tech as the company expands into the next frontier- laptops. While foldable smartphones did a good job (if not a surprise), Samsung now intends to bring folding screen technology into the laptop space. For this, the tech giant has unveiled the Flex Note concept at CES 2022.
Samsung showed the foldable screen concept on the laptop
At this year’s annual trade show Samsung Display unveiled a ‘technology concept’ and explained the potential of how a larger display could turn into something like a 13-inch laptop when folded and a 17-inch-wide monitor when folded. is extended. While the Galaxy Z Fold 3 managed to justify the foldable technology due to the flexibility of the device, the concept on the laptop still seems a distant dream considering the screen real estate and technical components. However, such a versatile laptop will surely enhance the user experience.
That said, 2022 could be the year of foldable screens (again), as Intel also announced that they are working on a foldable display spec that could take advantage of the adoption of laptops with foldable screens. Folding laptops are not a new concept, Lenovo tried to experiment with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold in 2020. But as technology continues to advance, we may see a great product coming in years to come.
In addition to the Flex Note, Samsung showcased a range of foldable products at CES 2022. This list includes – Samsung Flex S Foldable, Flex G Foldable and Flex Slideable. The Flex S is a foldable phone that has a three-way design and forms the letter S when unfolded. Meanwhile, the Flex G is an inward folding device that can be folded in such a way that the screen remains hidden. As for the Samsung Flex Slider, it looks somewhat like the Oppo X2021 offering additional screen real estate. The display on the device can slide out with the press of a button and can be used as a sidebar for accessing apps from the home screen. While most of these products are a technical concept, it remains to be seen how the group will put it into practice.
The Samsung Flex Note with a foldable screen is a concept that we would like to see first on more laptops appearing on BGR India.
