The production of smartphones with flexible screens is still in its infancy, but this does not prevent manufacturers from imagining how this technology can change the industry. Samsung has described a futuristic gadget with a display that can be rolled into a tube in a new patent. Presumably, it will be a pocket TV.
Over the past few years, this is the fourth patent from Samsung, which describes the principle of operation of electronic devices with a collapsible display. The company filed an application in mid-2017, but only now it has received public publicity.
The accompanying document describes the mechanical principle of folding the flexible display. The development belongs to the division of Samsung Display.
The gadget shown in the patent can be positioned as a variant of a mobile TV. With the development of 5G networks, Samsung is quite capable of becoming one of the first companies to offer such solutions.
