Reported by Phone Arena, Friday (10/26/2018), information about the tablet that can be folded comes from the circulation of patents about the device. This patent was filed in April 2018 in the United States (US), but until now it has not been published.
This patent describes a device that when not folded, can be used like a traditional tablet. If the user only wants to use one side of the tablet screen, then the device can be folded and automatically the UI (user interface, face display) will change like using a smartphone.
In the patent statement, this tablet concept utilizes two bezel-like grips on both sides of the screen. From the appearance, the grip is made of aluminum, the same as the body. The center of the rear panel has a hinge-like mechanism.
Since folding devices are still new and untested on the market, the company hopes to get a good reaction at the beginning of the Samsung Galaxy F.
If the smartphone is successful, the company will most likely provide the green light for the launch of folding tablets.
