After recently launching its first foldable smartphone in the form of Galaxy Fold, Samsung might be working on a wearable smartphone that folds into a wrist watch. While the idea to wear a smartphone sounds quite weird now but it could be a thing of the future. Samsung has started developing the foldable display of the Galaxy Fold seven year back and the company claims to be always at least five to seven ahead when it comes to component manufacturing.
Having said that, it is not the first time we are hearing about a wearable smartphone. ZTE has already showcased the world’s first wearable smartphone in the form of ZTE Nubia Alpha. It features a large curved OLED touch screen display which uses Flex, Nubia’s propriety flexible display technology. The device also has a camera on the front accompanied by a microphone and buttons on both the sides. The back of the device consists of charging pins and a heart rate sensor. The wearable smartphone also has a metal strap and comes in Black and Golden colour options.
As far as Samsung is concerned, the Samsung wearable smartphone could feature a thin and elongated flexible display. The top portion of the device could a front camera along with another camera module at the back. The device has a slider design on the side to prevent the smartphone from folding when it is not required.
As far as the Samsung foldable phone is concerned, the Galaxy Fold sports a regular thick 4.6-inch display which opens into a large 7.3-inch tablet. The best part is that the hinge line is not visible on the display and when it is unfolded, it actually appears like a 7.3-inch tablet. Note that the device folds in the centre only.
The Galaxy Fold is powered by a 7nm octa-core processor with 12GB of RAM and 512GB internal storage. There are a total of 6 cameras of the Galaxy Fold. Three at the back, one at the centre and two on the front. Samsung has that the user can click a photo in whichever way they are holding the phone. The Samsung Galaxy comes with two batteries to power the two displays.
