Samsung is trying to reinvent both phones and PCs experience
with foldable displays concept. The South Korean smartphone
giant Samsung appears to be obsessed with foldable displays as
a new report claims that the company is working on a foldable
laptop that would apparently run Microsoft’s Windows 10
Samsung has already confirmed that they’re working on a
foldable smartphone which will be launched soon. According to
an alleged statement from Lee Min-cheol, vice president at
marketing for PCs at Samsung, the company is now planning to
unveil laptops with a foldable display.
“Like foldable smartphones, Samsung is collaborating with
display makers to develop laptops with foldable displays that
will not just simply fold in and out but create new value and
user experience, amid the changing market trends for laptops,”
Samsung’s Lee Min-cheol said in a statement.
With the foldable displays for laptops, Samsung could really
reinvent the PC experience but it’s not known yet if the
devices will be durable and efficient as the regular laptops.
A foldable laptop is likely to run Windows 10 (Windows
Core OS?) and it would use flexible AMOLED displays to
change the form factor.
Samsung has already announced that the company is aiming to
launch a foldable phone by next year but the smartphone maker
hasn’t revealed any other details of the foldable laptop yet.
It remains to be seen if the foldable laptops would change the
user experience or create a new form factor.
Perhaps a computer that folds to become a tablet will attract
the consumers? Nobody knows.
