Samsung showed off four foldable display technologies at CES 2022, including three new panels that could feature in smartphones, and a display that could be used in a foldable laptop. The company formerly sells popular foldable handsets similar to Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, which contend with immolations from Motorola and Oppo. The company revealed its Flex S, Flex G, and Flex Slidable panels aimed at smartphones, along with the Flex Note panel that could make its way to keyboard-less laptops with foldable displays. Still, Samsung is yet to reveal any plans to turn these conception biases into retail products.
The South Korean company showcased its Flex Note panel at CES 2022, which is a conception for laptops with a single, nonstop display that replaces the physical keyboard, according to a report by Sam Mobile. Druggies will be suitable to take advantage of fresh screen real estate when consuming media and other content, while having access to a touch keyboard and other input options just like a smartphone screen, according to the report.
Samsung's Flex S and Flex G conception panels are named after the manner in which they unfold. This means that the Flex S fold comes with three panels that fold outward, into a larger screen. It's worth noting that while the Flex S panel does offer a larger display with a compact form factor, two of the display panels are facing outward which could expose it to scrapes and damage. Samsung's Flex G conception is designed to alleviate that problem — it also features three foldable panels, but which fold inward rather than outward.
The company showcased a fourth galère display technology at CES 2022, called Flex Slidable. It features a familiar design that resembles the Oppo X 2021 smartphone. The Flex Slidable panel was shown off in a conception handset, with a sliding display that rolls out in for fresh screen space. While it could be used to expand the viewing area for content, Samsung's videotape suggests a set of lanes, analogous to its swipe-able roadway panel plant on its One UI Android skin.
