Flexible screens open up a wide variety of form-factors, and one of them is a tri-fold (or Z-fold) screen which would let a smartphone-sized device turn into a large tablet.
Now GizmoChina reports that the device is indeed real and may be coming to market in less than a year.
They have been informed by reliable tipster Yogesh that the tri-fold tablet will be launched as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Tab in Q1 2022.
The device may be teased as Samsung’s upcoming Unpacked event to launch the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 and Samsung Galaxy Fold 3. Reportedly the marketing team is still debating this strategy.
The device will supposedly feature a stronger UltraThin Glass and would therefore support the hybrid S-Pen.
GizmoChina notes that while these details are correct for now, there may be changes with further development.
