There have been a large amount of rumors about a folding Samsung phone – acknowledged as the Galaxy X – in excess of the a long time, and patents have even offered us an idea of how it could glance.
But now we’ve bought an idea of how the interface on this flexible phone could function, as GalaxyClub has occur throughout a patent software demonstrating a Samsung interface for a folding phone.
The accompanying visuals present a monitor that folds in 50 %, every single portion of which can incorporate a different property monitor or menu, in portrait or landscape.
Which is as opposed to just offering you 1 monitor and creating it even larger or scaled-down, so the concentration looks to be on fitting a lot more on the display screen when the Galaxy X is unfolded.
As properly as just two property screens, other illustrations present a record of contacts on 1 monitor and someone’s contact card on the other, or the viewfinder for the front-dealing with camera on 1 display screen and for the rear 1 on the other, or a recreation on the front and the touchscreen controls for it on the rear.
Two screens are much better than 1
It also appears from the visuals like Samsung envisages obtaining two screens (potentially with a hinge in the center), instead than a constant folding display screen – in the exact same vein as the ZTE Axon M.
You could then both have the two screens aspect by aspect for a larger sized display screen, or fold it in excess of so 1 monitor is on the front of the phone and the other on the back. Some visuals also present the handset currently being folded in this sort of a way that it can stand by itself up.
However, it’s worthy of noting that the patent was submitted in early 2016, and as this sort of the interface is a lot more in the type of a Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S7.
So it’s a bit dated and therefore the true glance of this interface practically certainly won’t make it to the Samsung Galaxy X – but some of the features, concentration on fitting a lot more on the monitor and the style and design of the phone could.
And we could not even have much too considerably lengthier to hold out, as Samsung’s cell manager has beforehand said the company is aiming for a 2018 launch for the Galaxy X.
