Samsung smartphone foldable in three, it becomes clearer

After the single folding of the Galaxy Z, Samsung could soon launch the double folding for smartphone screens.

Already mentioned last spring, Samsung's three-section smartphone project resurfaced through a recently registered patent, unearthed by Let's Go Digital. The document describes in detail the guts of this three-section smartphone which when unfolded takes the form of a large tablet.

Z-fold and HDMI connector

The device folds thanks to two hinges with opposite folds, giving the whole a Z shape when fully folded / unfolded. The patent gives more details, like the camera hidden under the screen, S Pen compatibility, and even an HDMI connector. As a reminder, patents do not provide definitive information on the final functionalities of a product, but allow us to give big clues about its design and its potential functioning.
