But now we have an concept of how the interface on this flexible cellphone would possibly work, as GalaxyMembership has come throughout a patent utility exhibiting a Samsung interface for a folding cellphone.
The accompanying photos present a display screen that folds in half, every part of which may include a special dwelling display screen or menu, in portrait or panorama.
That’s versus simply supplying you with one display screen and making it larger or smaller, so the main target appears to be on becoming extra on the show when the Galaxy X is unfolded.
As nicely as simply two dwelling screens, different examples present an inventory of contacts on one display screen and somebody’s contact card on the opposite, or the viewfinder for the front-facing digicam on one show and for the rear one on the opposite, or a recreation on the entrance and the touchscreen controls for it on the rear.
