Samsung working on 7 inch tablet with foldable display – expected in 2015 ???


Samsung has been working on perfecting their flexible AMOLED displays for what seems like forever, and we’ve been yearning for the day that they introduce the technology in an actual mobile product. We know they’re working on an interesting design with the Note 4′s rumored YOUM display that wraps around the edges of the device to show notifications and music controls, but they could be coming to town with something even more unique.

However, it seems Samsung might launch its next Galaxy Note phablet with company’s Youm flexible OLED display technology this year, if a new report is to be believed.

ZDNet Korea in a report citing industry insiders claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be the company’s first smartphone to feature a three-sided Youm display. The report further suggests that the three-sided display will be utilised to show notifications for mails, messages and calls on the bent side of the device without unlocking the device.

Notably, the South Korean handset maker showcased the Youm flexible OLED display technology at CES last year. Samsung also showcased a curved prototype featuring a wrap-around screen that took the display around the edges of the device.

In addition, Yoon Han-kil, Senior Vice President of Samsung’s product strategy team, in an interview told Reuters that Samsung plans to launch the next Galaxy Note in a new form factor in the second half of 2014.
