Foldable Dual Display Samsung Galaxy Q to Debut at MWC

By - Source: SlashGear | B 11 comments

Device likely to debut Samsung's Youm technology.


Samsung is said to be working on a foldable dual display smartphone in the form of the Galaxy Q, with a reveal rumored for the Mobile World Congress.

GLBenchmark's tests of a device with the model number GT-B9150 recently emerged, which lists the handset as featuring two 5.3-inch 1080p AMOLED displays. The handset's screen apparently folds together and then unfolds seamlessly.

It's powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core Exynos processor and 2 GB of memory, accompanied by 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras and a 3500 mAh battery.

A 5.3-inch Galaxy Q had previously emerged in 2011. The video below, from 2008, showcases an early version of the technology utilized in order to make the Galaxy Q's two screens fit together without breaking.

The Galaxy Q is expected to debut Youm, Samsung's flexible and bendable OLED display revealed during CES 2013.

    Dual 1080 displays on a smartphone that is seamless. Youm has now peaked my interest.

    Samsung puts out some of the most innovative and impressive products. It's been probably almost 8 years and I STILL miss my K5 with the fold out speaker. Such a good unit, and great sound quality for blasting a tune in a low-medium noise level enviroment.

    Now THAT is a company with innovative products and ideas.
    Not like a certain unnamed company who employs more Attorneys than Engineers.

    Samsung should hurry and patent it before Apple finds the video on Youtube.

    now, imagine the Galaxy S 5, a 4.8'' phone that can unfold into a 10'' screen tablet. You have both portability, and screen size in the same object. God future is good, and it's not coming from Apple.

    That doesn't work, you need four 5" screens to make one 10" screen. Two would be closer to a 7" tablet. Still quite useful though.
