Samsung has filed a patent for a new foldable tablet

The patent describes a tablet with a clamshell design

Samsung filed the patent with the European Union Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Office database.

After the release of the Samsung Galaxy Fold earlier this year, Samsung have been looking at how they can implement foldable screens into its other products. Just recently, Samsung had patent listing from the European Union Intellectual Property Office that reveals that the Korean tech giant is looking at releasing a Tablet that comes with a flexible screen. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, this device could feature a clamshell design as opposed to a horizontal fold. 

First reported by LetsGoDigital, the Galaxy foldable Tab will be slightly larger than the Galaxy Fold. It’s not surprising that Samsung have decided to move forward with foldable devices since this seems to be the coming trend. Both Huawei and Motorola have already thrown their hats into the foldable phone market. Surprisingly, the Samsung folding tab resembles a Motorola Razr more than the Samsung Fold. A deeper look at the patent shows a full body screen on the front. This could mean that Samsung could be implementing an in-display camera on the display itself. 

It looks like Samsung are going full steam ahead with this concept and why not? A smaller tablet could only mean good things. You’ll save space and add another layer of portability to the device. A tablet that fits in your pocket? Samsung seems to think so. As of now, the device is still just an idea. All we can confirm is that the Korean tech giant has filed for a patent for this particular foldable device in the European Union Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Office database.
