Samsung has released a couple of illustrations that give us a sneak peek at the future of foldable phones. The South Korean company has been developing foldable displays under the Samsung Display division for some years. In February last year, Samsung also started its journey as a foldable smartphone maker and unveiled the Galaxy Fold as the first commercially available smartphone that can be transformed into a 7.3-inch tablet, thanks to its flexible display. However, after bringing the initial range of foldable phones to the market, Samsung may have something different to showcase in 2021.

As spotted by SamMobile, Samsung Display has shared the illustrations showing new foldable smartphone concepts on its Korean blog. One of the visuals shared publicly shows a tri-fold display on a phone that becomes similar to the original Galaxy Fold when folded. It appears to have a smartphone interface on one side and a tablet-like experience on the other.

Aside from visualising the tri-fold display, Samsung has shared another illustration on its Korean blog that shows a device with a rollable display. It appears to come from a cylindrical stick and provide an enhanced productivity experience.

Samsung executives suggested the development of rollable smartphone concepts in the past. Similar to Samsung, its fellow-Korean competitor LG is speculated to unveil its rollable smartphone in June next year.
