Samsung patents 'floating display' for foldable phones and tablets
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 04, 2016, 4:12 AM
cornered pretty much every shape and form you can do with a flexible phone display in the patent office, from vertical to horizontal unfolding, rollable and stretchable designs, and everything in-between. Its latest patent applications now fleshed out a bit more how a foldable mobile device might get unlocked, as well as ways to make the screen edges more useful - like deactivating touch there when a phone is open, and firing up actions for, say, a music player, when closed, depending on which side the phone lies.Doing it the American way, Samsung has
Samsung also lists ways to unlock a foldable tablet, and the rather interesting "floating display" concept, which pulls up the screen imagery while you are opening the phone, so you can just take it ajar a little for a quick glance, for instance, instead of snapping it wide open completely.

WHY WHY WHY mention the iPhone in this article? Yes Apple is rumoured to have a flexible display on the iPhone 8 BUT....... it is just a flexible display like what is in an lg flex or samsung edge. NOT.... I REPEAT NOT a bendable phone as what the article is a out. Why would samsung be releasing a bendable phone to go againsto what they would regard as old tech? Just another piece by phonearena to make Apple sound relevant

Don't act like bendable phones or whatever will ever be "relevant". Don't kid yourself. No one gives a s**t about that and that won't change for many years to come. All these Samsung kids acting like that all the gimmicks Samsung releases are interesting anyone.

As long as Samsung remains Samsung nothing will change. Inferior designs and quality will continue to scream in their products.

As long as Samsung remains Samsung nothing will change. They'll continue to sell tons of phones, which are some of the highest rated in the industry with the best customer satisfaction ratings of any smartphones.
