Samsung is undoubtedly the market leader in the foldable phone space right now, having jumped ahead of competitors and offering two very different form factors. So you have to wonder what else the company could offer.
Samsung Display announced in a press release that they will participate in the World Information Display Society (SID)’s Week, which will take place from May 17th to May 21st, 2021.
Samsung Display revealed a new lineup of OLED panel alternatives today. This gives us a hint as to the types of devices we might expect in the future from the company. In addition to an Under Display Camera panel, the additional alternatives include substantially larger foldable panels.
The new display panels were debuted as part of the Display Week 2021 exhibition. It is, as one might expect, an online exhibition in which Samsung is taking part virtually.
S-FOLDER, 17″FOLDER, and SLIDER (SLIDE)
The designs in the show include an S-folding or Z-folding foldable phone, a rollable phone reminiscent of LG’s rejected project, a 17-inch folding display, and a laptop with an under-display camera are among the concepts on display.
Samsung is expected to release a bi-folding Galaxy device, according to rumors. This will be made possible by Samsung Display’s revolutionary S-Foldable OLED panel.
This panel can be used as part of a device that folds in or out. The gadget may be used as a smartphone when folded twice, and when unfolded, it reaches a maximum size of 7.2 inches.
When the smartphone is fully opened, we can see a thick bezel on the left-hand side of the device, which houses the cameras and provides a gripping surface.
Keeping with the smartphone theme, Samsung Display’s “slidable” or “rollable” design appears to be very similar to LG’s. The right-hand side of the screen stretches, giving you a little more screen real estate to work with.
Samsung’s slidable displays have also sparked a lot of interest. The company also has a slew of patents related to the technology. The Slidable OLED display prototype has finally been displayed. This technology allows the screen to be extended horizontally without the need for any folds.
Samsung Display today unveiled a 17-inch foldable panel, which could be an indication that foldable Samsung tablets are on the way. When unfolded, it has the screen real estate of a tablet, with a 4:3 aspect ratio. A tablet with this display panel will undoubtedly be far more adaptable than anything currently available.
UPC (UNDER PANEL CAMERA)
Finally, a full-screen technique that reduces the bezel and optimizes the screen on existing IT devices by placing the front camera on the bezel underneath the panel, boosting the transmission rate of the panel where the camera module is positioned, and securing camera functionality.
Samsung is scheduled to produce a Z-foldable tablet in early 2022 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with an under-display camera later this year, including some of this technology.
Samsung Display participates in a variety of categories, including keynote lectures and thesis presentations, in addition to the “SID 2021” exhibition.
At SID 2021, Samsung Display will present 27 papers on a wide range of subjects, including next-generation luminescent materials and TFT device technologies. Following the SID opening, all content released in the ‘SID 2021′ online exhibition hall will be available sequentially on the Samsung Display YouTube channel.
