Samsung showcases several foldable displays ahead of SID 2021 exhibition

Ahead of this week’s exhibition Society for Information Display (SID), Samsung Display teased several of its upcoming foldable OLED panels. We get a sneak peek at the brand’s S-foldable panel as well as a sliding option and a large screen panel for laptops with a built-in camera under the panel. The conference runs from today to May 21st.

The S-foldable screen folds at two points, giving you the flexibility to adjust the desired screen properties on the go depending on the current task. The diagonal of the screen expands up to 7.2 inches when fully opened, but there is also a more manageable form factor with only one unfolding. The forward-facing cameras are located in the left edge of the screen.

In addition, we get a look at the sliding screen prototype, which has a horizontally expanding screen that also allows for gradual adjustment. When unfolded, the demo device is displayed in the same size as a conventional smartphone. At the touch of a button, the screen can be expanded by several millimeters to present a larger screen for multitasking and media consumption.

Samsung also featured a 17-inch foldable screen that folds in half, similar to Microsoft’s Surface Neo tablet and Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold. The panel has a 4: 3 aspect ratio design with productivity in mind. It can be used in both portrait and landscape orientation.

Finally, we get a glimpse of Samsung’s plans for an almost edgeless laptop. The screen has an integrated front-facing camera below the top edge. The result is quite impressive and ensures a maximum screen real estate. The only question is whether Samsung can find out the quality of the camera.
