Samsung showcases laptop, tablet and clamshell concepts at CES

After the success of the Galaxy Fold, Samsung introduced more ambitious designs.

Samsung has been a leader in clamshell smartphones for nearly three years, but the future of the company's ambitions has always been on display at trade fairs, dating back to 2008. With three versions of the Galaxy Z Fold (and two smaller ones) from Z Flips) under the company's belt, Samsung's display division at CES with a slew of prototypes shows what it thinks the future of the oyster will look like. For whatever reason, Samsung has released official videos for these devices, but they are not hosted anywhere, but there are mirrors of Abhijeet Mishra (1, 2, 3, 4) on YouTube.

These are not from the "Galaxy" section (which would be Samsung Mobile) and are not entirely private devices. But Samsung's display technology has been the driving force behind the Galaxy Fold series. Now, the display department wants to deal with larger and more complex form factors.

The triple concepts of "Flex S" and "Flex G"

If one works on screen. Galaxy Z Fold, so it would definitely be better to double it up. The first concept, the 'Flex S' comes in an 'S' shape (more like a 'Z', but the 'S' works better with the Samsung brand). This gives you a visible front screen when the device is closed and an aspect ratio when open. Flex S is available in phone and tablet versions. The commercial Galaxy Fold needs a completely separate screen to have a front screen, while the Flex S needs only one. The Huawei Mate X only tested the single-screen design with a single fold, but that meant the entire device had a single screen when closed, and there was no "secure" side to the desk. Flex S solves this problem with the second problem. Advertising

This tablet opens with an aspect ratio of 16:10, which looks good for video content, tablet apps, or tripods. The phone's peripherals take the form of a phone when the tablet is closed, but this prototype appears to be one of the largest "phones" on the market.

It looks just like the shrunken phone was made. Even the Galaxy Z Fold. There is a protruding plastic frame around the flexible OLED display that secures the panel attached to the phone. Like the hem, the screen edges are wrapped around the hinge area, with a "T" shaped guard that hopefully won't fit under anything under the thin screen. A smaller version of the Flex S. A tiny phone that has become a small tablet which is a good idea. Acrylic block is after all a wild idea. Shouldn't there be more screen and more battery? Samsung Animation opening. Samsung

The phone version of the Flex S has already appeared at other trade fairs. This reduces the same way as the triple design, to the point where it looks like a device in the 4-inch range. Closed, you get a small one-handed phone design that you can then open to a larger device for multimedia use. Zooming in on a small phone is an interesting idea, and seems to be more practical than the Galaxy Z Flip, which is just a regular phone that folds in half.

In contrast to the tablet, the Flex S has the advantage that it is acceptable. Turn on the camera thanks to the camera bump on the left side of the front of the device. This is not a demo, but I believe this camera can act as a front and back camera, just by folding the first part of the screen and using the other half of the screen as a scene selector. Ads

on the right side. The device panel is a bit strange. Samsung decided not to extend the screen to the end of the phone. Instead, the phone turns into just a translucent plastic block. When the phone is folded, there is now a main screen on the front and a transparent plastic strip that shows part of the screen on the back, where you can show a message or something. Flex G phone, with a large S-Pen mount on the right. I'm not sure why you would want a phone without an external notification screen, but I think you can add one to this prototype if you want.

Flex Gs is the same idea, but the whole thing collapses inward, so there are no screens on the outside. It protects the screen a lot when it's in your pocket, but you won't have quick screens for notifications, which we've found to be limited in other cases. There is still a dead zone on the right side of the phone, but this time Samsung is filling it in with the S-Pen mount. There is a front camera, but there is no rear camera on this prototype.

The large tablet version is full screen only. There is no camera and I'm not sure if it has a charging port.

Samsung also introduced a phone with a rotating screen. This is similar to designs we've already seen from LG, Oppo, and TCL. In phone mode, the flexible screen wraps around one side of the phone with an additional unused screen. When it's time to switch to tablet mode, a set of actuators expand the body of the device, pulling the more fluid screen from the back to the front, causing the screen to grow. This design has been proven by many companies, but no one has yet marketed it. Google's original YouTube is killing off its core video content collection
