Samsung is already one of the leaders of the smartphone market with folding displays. Now the South Korean giant is working on a new form factor – a model with a folding screen.
On the eve of the event SID 2021, the Samsung Display unit has already demonstrated Z-shaped displays, options for smartphones-sliders and folding screens. Nevertheless, direct communication with the production of smartphones could not be – the company issues solutions for the most diverse electronics.
Now there is no doubt – an application for the registration of the Z Roll trademark was submitted by the European EUIPO regulator Samsung Electronics itself, and not a division engaged in the production of screen matrices. The very name of the model already indicates the nature of the technology: translated from the English roll means something twisted, for example, a roll or scroll.
The South Korean company began experimenting with unusual form factors in the Galaxy Z series and seems to intend to produce new models under this brand. The market already has a smartphone-book Galaxy Z Fold and clamshell Galaxy Z Flip. While Galaxy Z Roll is known. It can be expected that new data will appear with the release of Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 in August of the current year.
LG worked on a smartphone with a folding display – it demonstrated the first samples of a minimal smartphone last year, but with the refusal of the company from the production of smartphones, the development was cooked. Also, the model with a similar type screen demonstrated both OPPO, but the OPPO x 2021 device was only a concept. It is possible that Samsung will be the first company that has released a gadget with a reassuring display.
