Patent explains how Samsung's foldable tablet could work

A patent has cropped up online that reveals that Samsung could develop a tablet that folds in half like a book.

Perhaps most intriguing is the inclusion of a side screen. This would allow users to access customisable shortcuts on the side of the device when folded, and could be used to enter a passcode to unlock the tablet. The patent also describes a way for users to access different modes – such as the camera – while unlocking the device.

The patent also mentions a new technology, which Samsung calls floating screen. This would allow an image to appear between the two sides of the screen, meaning you won’t need to snap the tablet out fully when you want to check notifications.

Of course, just because Samsung holds a patent for such technology doesn’t mean we’ll see it implemented. However, Samsung has been exploring foldable technology, so there is a chance that this will make an appearance someday.
