Samsung has reportedly filed two new trademarks with the Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) for devices with flexible display technology. The devices in question would be nicknamed Slidable Flex Solo and Slidable Flex Duet. The South Korean tech giant appears to be expanding its flexible display technology. Earlier this year, Samsung showcased the Flex Slidable concept panel at CES 2022. It was showcased with sliding displays that can be used to expand the display area of a screen.
According to a report from Sammobile, Samsung has registered the nicknames Slidable Flex Solo and Slidable Flex Duet with KIPRIS as its trademark. Unfortunately, nothing is known about these devices for the time being. However, the South Korean tech giant presented the Flex Slidable display at CES 2022 earlier this year. This technology could form the basis for these devices.
So far, Samsung has only launched smartphones with single-folding screens. The recently launched Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 had record pre-bookings, according to a recent report.
The South Korean tech giant is also developing several other displays based on flexible display technology. It has listed some of these concepts — Flex Bar, Flex Note, Flex Square, Slidable Flex, and Rollable Flex — on its Samsung Display site.
Samsung is also reportedly working on a smartphone with a foldable display that can be wrapped around one’s hands. The alleged design patent of this device suggests that it can be folded in a way to form a loop. It can also be folded at a right angle to form a curved waterfall-like screen.
Furthermore, an earlier report showed that Samsung is developing a multifunctional expandable screen. The company reportedly filed a patent for this technology with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The supposed designs suggest that this display could be expanded in all directions.
