The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Samsung two patents for mobile devices equipped with a large flexible display.
One of the documents has the laconic name “Tablet computer” (“Tablet computer”). This patent describes a tablet with a screen that folds into the body. In the central area of the side parts, there will be connectors, in particular, a USB Type-C port.
The second document is entitled “Foldable mobile phone with a transitional graphical user interface”. We are talking about another version of a smartphone in the format of a book.
As you can see in the images, there is a notch at the top right of the flexible screen: this is where the multi-module front camera is located. An auxiliary screen is installed on the outside of the case, above which there is another camera. The main rear camera contains three components that are lined up vertically.
Both patents belong to the design category, and therefore the technical characteristics of the devices are not given. Applications were filed by Samsung Electronics back in 2019 but only registered this week.
