The South Korean manufacturer of consumer technology seems to be set for next year: 2017, and gradually the details about it are uncovered. After Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy Sy Edge this year, and waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 next year is also expected to arrive on Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8, but will come into play a new line that now we are known as Samsung Galaxy X. And as has been waiting for several years, will be folding.
Along with LG Electronics, Samsung is at the forefront in developing screens for smart devices. There are two generations who have already mounted P-OLED displays flexible, thanks to which it has shaped the Edge series, but the next is also “flexible” make the body of your devices to provide folding equipment, which had already been allowed to see different patents, and that Samsung had shown in conceptual designs. Now, one of the key points is that the resolution of this folding device is 4K, and arrangement of subpixels will be maintained using the PenTile format that allows significant energy savings towards battery life.
What were not disclosed details is on the terminal configuration as to its construction. It is not yet known whether the materials used will remain the aluminum and glass or polycarbonate for strength will resume. In any case, during several years he has been requesting Samsung patents for configuring a hinge in the central part of the device, which can be folded be due to the flexibility of the screen.
The internal components such as the processor or battery, among others, are not yet flexible. However, circuitry and other screen. Therefore, and taking into account these patents, it seems that Samsung will use this hinge to take it as a single point fold. And so, if the accompanying software, you can vary between tablet and smartphone formats with just fold and unfold the device.
