The Samsung Galaxy Fold’s display issues may have meant a future of foldable devices has been postponed for the moment, but that hasn’t stopped Samsung from coming up with plans for another smartphone with a foldable screen.
This time, patents have revealed a concept for a Samsung smartphone with a rollable screen.
That’s right, the “Galaxy Roll” isn’t just a tasty morsel from a space-themed sushi restaurant — it could be Samsung’s next bizarre device.
The patents, available from the World Intellectual Property Organization, shows a device that’s enormously different from the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
Rather than unfolding into a larger, tablet-sized screen, the Galaxy Roll’s screen would extend upwards on rollers, increasing the aspect ratio and creating a much longer screen.
When not in use, the extra screen would be stored in the bottom of the device, and would presumably roll up.
