A Smartphone with a screen unfolds to become a tablet? It may be longer science fiction. Samsung, which has long worked on this project, seems close to commercialization. While the border between Smartphone and tablet becomes increasingly blurred (Smartphone 5.5 inch and 7-inch tablets), a Smartphone that turns into a tablet might be the necessary compromise between mobility and comfortable viewing. This is what seems to be preparing Samsung.
According to the website Techjailbreak , remains cautious about the validity of information, technical specifications might include: 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, GPU Mali-T-6, 3500 mAh battery, a first photo sensor of 8MP, 2MP second, a double amoled screen 5.3 inches with a resolution of 1280 x 672 pixels, and Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1.
This Samsung Galaxy Q (GT-B9150) could thus be updating a project that dates back some time, since they could already see the prototype 2008, and whose dimensions correspond screen. The principle is to provide an apparatus equipped with AMOLED screen that can be folded in two, and in which the central area is rounded to avoid sharp bending (we can close and open the unit up to 100,000 times with a loss of brightness of the order of only 6%).
As seen in the video below, which dates from May 2008, a Smartphone could thus open like a book to reveal a shelf inside. If there is no guarantee that the device will be a Smartphone, tablet, or even that will really day, many sites seem to think that the device could be marketed in 2013, the year in which the flexible AMOLED screens from Samsung will arrive on the market.
In any case, Samsung has the technology, resources, and every reason to launch this product quickly and take all the competition and speed. Now we have to see whether it is possible to provide such a device at a fair price. Amoled screens are expensive to produce, and investment in this technology wills certainly flexible first device of this type a product inaccessible.
