Samsung Display teased a series of its upcoming foldable OLED panels ahead of the Society for Information Display exhibition. Samsung Display also uploaded a YouTube video informing and detailing the same. The video teases the company’s S-foldable panel, along with a slidable option and a large screen panel for laptops that are supposed to come with a built-in camera under the panel. The SID conference is scheduled to take place starting from May 18 through to May 21.
The S-foldable screen comes with greater flexibility allowing the screen to fold at two points. The screen can expand up to 7.2-inches when fully opened. Moreover, the left-hand side bezel of the same display houses the front camera.
Apart from the highly anticipated S-foldable screen, the South Korean tech giant also teases a slidable display prototype that features, like the S-foldable screen, an expanding display that can be adjusted as per the requirements of the user. The new prototype appears to be the same size as any standard smartphone. To expand the screen, the user only needs to press a button. The expanded screen can be used for multi-tasking.
Additionally, the video also showcases a 17-inch foldable display that can be folded in half. This OLED screen appears similar to that of Microsoft’s Surface Neo tablet and Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold. A few reports claim that the screen will come with an aspect ratio of 4:3. Moreover, the display screen also supports both portrait and landscape modes.
Another product that Samsung teases is the company’s upcoming almost bezel-less laptop. Underneath the non-existent top bezel, a front-facing camera can be located. The product looks impressive; however, no details about the laptop are known as of now. Samsung will likely publish and describe the features of the upcoming laptop.
