Samsung files new patent for “foldable phones” and the “artificial muscle”
When it comes to innovation in the smartphone industry, Samsung is definitely no slouch. With their curved edge technology which they introduced last year to their Samsung Pay mechanism which even has a wider reach than most mobile payment platforms now, Samsung is yet going for another push in the world of technology and this one would make the curved/ bent display that they have always talked about on their AMOLED screens look like child’s play.
According to reports, Samsung has already filed for a patent and the device is expected to be a foldable one, pushing their research on bendable displays to the extreme.
The project which has been codenamed “Project Valley” is expected to launch next year, according to Bloomberg. Currently the rumours are saying that there are two different models in the works – the first would be able to fold in two after which a crevice where the charger port might be would be visible and the other one would be able to fold from a 5-inch phone to an 8-inch tablet.
Considering the fact that folding and unfolding might just be too much for the user, Samsung has patented another of its beautiful ideas which was named the ‘artificial muscle’. Simply, what this artificial muscle does is make the folding easier for you and is also connected to a multiple folding function which asks you what part of your device you would love folded.
Samsung surely knows how to excite users, and this is a whole new level of excitement.
