It is pleasant to see that mass hardware shortage didn’t affect rollable display demos from manufacturers. Samsung Display is the latest company to reveal its concepts for folding screens, but you’ll be amazed. The Verge shared the information that SamMobile showed off concepts that were the part of a virtual Display Week exhibition including a “multi-foldable” mobile display and a large 17-inch folding screen.

The first concept model is called S-foldable. It goes with a bi-fold design that can transform into a 7.2 inches gadget. It resembles Galaxy Z Fold 2 but with plus one fold. The company also revealed a concept of a sliding mobile display, that is almost similar to the LG’s rollable concept. Unfortunately LG left the market before releasing the phone. 

Some other Samsung Display concepts

Samsung Display also disclosed two other concepts of bigger screens. The first one is a 17-inch foldable OLED that looks more like a tablet, but it can function as a monitor when unfolded. This one you’ll like a lot, or not. It’s a common looking laptop, without any foldable elements or some other magical transformations. But, it comes with the inner screen camera. Just look at it.

For those who don’t know, Samsung Display is a division of Samsung Electronics. It is responsible for OLED panels that Samsung and other manufacturers can use in their tech. But, these concepts are only concepts, and may stay in this position. The company as a whole hasn’t been shy about embracing foldable technology, getting into the foldable device market early. It may have more companies soon; display OEM TCL has shown off its own concepts and says it will bring one to market this year. Until then, we’ll be watching and filling out our foldable concept bingo cards.
