We live in a world of technology as new innovations emerge daily along with so many unique features and enhancements, especially across the consumer electronics space. Most of the technological advancements seem to be ordinary these days as we are using the same for ages.
And as a part of this, so many users are now using smartphones on daily basis today, that too wasn’t quite fascinating enough, now things that can occupy the corner are the next generation Foldable smartphones which are the mainstream now and Rollable devices may be just beyond the compass.
Now the competitive smartphone brands are struggling to launch their first rollable smartphone and out of which Samsung is one of them. We also heard a chunk of words about this special device of which we get some more additional info this summer, and it seems like its first rollable devices could be here sooner than expected. Now here this going to raise the question that- Is Samsung rollable part of Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event? And the word answer is “No”.
Samsung informed in a press note officially that they are all set to reveal its flagship Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 smartphones to unfold the next generation of mobile experience on Wednesday, August 10, 2022, along with the Galaxy Watch 5 series and the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro at its Galaxy Unpacked event. There has been no odour of the word “rollable” with respect to this event.
N4 or a Project Diamond
Rumour of a special device name “N4” or a “Project Diamond” which doesn’t relate to the Flip 4 and Fold 4 that may or may not appear at the Unpacked event. It may probably have been named as a foldable device rather than a rollable one, but it’s been agreed on the fact that it won’t go on sale this year.
And talking about rollable smartphones then it is still a hidden treasure and going into much depth will lead to the wrong path.
Also carrying the teamwork of a large team of designers and engineers, Samsung is still trying to make its presence, although sometimes back few other platforms have reportedly showcased the potential of rollable phone design. Altogether Samsung also showcased rollable displays at the Society of Information Displays at Display Week in May (via Android Authority) with some prototypes styled similarly to what the above patents reveal.
These could name as a “Flex Slidable” form factors feature where an extendable chassis going to show all of the display or a smaller portion of it when the device contracts — whereas a scrolling part of the section inside would store the unused part of the panel.
And finally, as we do not ensure enough that Samsung really going to finalise the rollable smartphones product. As usual, there are numerous stages involved in the development as well as in production processes for any new product where we info gets easily leaked.
Out of many ones of the big engineering hurdles relevant to the expansion and contraction of the device. As with internal hardware which is meant to fit the smallest possible iteration of the extendible form, apart from this, we’re also looking at challenges coming in the wiring between the parts as more wire, more risks of failure and which leads to less performance. Part of this, next is the durability of the actual components and the thermal envelope among others.
And from all hurdles and challenges coming, all that we can tell, this seems to be Samsung’s approach along with the wider competition to integrating rollable displays onto smartphones. Now it’s the company have to decide what approach they going to implement, either it’s a safe bet that a Flex Slideable phone or phablet, will simultaneously come along.
Samsung Rollable gist
Now coming to gist, Samsung has a great opportunity to mesmerise the crowd with a hypnotizing tease of what it thinks a “rollable phone” should be, costing and some other tech hurdles. However, the detailed clarification is still far from what many actually want to know: when it actually going to land.
