What to expect: Folding machines may not be liked by everyone, but they are gradually gaining the attention of tech enthusiasts, especially among young people. Samsung's prototype has a lot to do with your imagination, but it also shows that the dream of a triple smartphone has come true.
Samsung is now the undisputed king of clamshell phones, and it seems that the young audience is so excited about the company's latest Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 that the company is considering demand is a problem. So far, they have surpassed my Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 20, which is no small feat.
The new Galaxy Z folds are exciting, but companies are testing a number of factors. And that has not yet been realized in a commercial device. Samsung recently unveiled a prototype clamshell phone that closely resembles one of the three bizarre concepts depicted in the popular science fiction TV series Westworld.
This clamshell device was featured at the International Information Summit. IMID is observing 2021 in South Korea. As you can see in the video above, it uses the existing Galaxy Z Fold design a lot. While the prototype doesn't appear in foldable mode, it can be expanded to a 7.2-inch tablet with an 18:9 aspect ratio, proving that the dummy device Samsung announced in May actually works. Samsung refers to this device as a "double" device, and the prototype in question is called the Samsung Flex In & Out. We've seen before that the Korean tech giant is determined to bring clamshell phones into the mainstream, so it's interesting to see if the concept launches in the coming years.
