Samsung is reportedly working on developing foldable OLED display panels for various companies like OPPO, Xiaomi and Google. OPPO will feature a clamshell design, folding from top to bottom. The display size is 7.7-inch unfolded, while the outer screen is sized between 1.5 to 2-inches, reports The Elec.
Xiaomi is also switching to an in-folding design as it is reportedly aiming to launch a foldable smartphone with an 8.03 inch display. Also, the search engine giant Google has requested Samsung to develop a foldable OLED panel with a 7.6-inch in size.
In addition, Samsung recently filed a patent for a clamshell foldable phone similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G but with a larger cover display, more cameras, and a better hinge.
The upcoming smartphone is expected to come with a redesigned hinge that not only supports Flex Mode but also shuts the phone with zero-gap. It will feature a triple camera setup instead of a dual-camera module along with an LED flash, with no punch-hole camera in the inner display.
To recall, the company introduced Galaxy Z Fold2 that sports a 6.2-inch cover screen and a 7.6-inch main screen when unfolded. Galaxy Z Fold2 is Samsung's third foldable smartphone after Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Flip.
