Samsung Fold Flip 5 storage

It’s only been a few years since Samsung introduced its first foldable display smartphone and currently, the company’s foldables are some of the best devices in the industry. Samsung is constantly experimenting with new display types and as a result, it trademarks the FlexMirror display.

On February 6, 2023, Samsung made an entry of “FlexMirror” on the KIPRIS (Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service) database, which suggests that the company is experimenting with a new display type.

The database does not reveal any information about FlexMirror nor does it suggest the actual purpose of such a display. However, ‘flex’ is usually related to foldable or rollable displays, so we can assume that Samsung trademarks the FlexMirror display for its future foldable or rollable smartphones.

The name of the product suggets that the display may have some reflective properties. On the other hand, it may also be possible that the company is hiding something behind the name and could introduce a unique display variant in the future. Let’s wait and see what actually it is.

Besides this, Samsung recently showcases the world’s first “Flex Hybrid” which combines two innovative technologies – the foldable and the slideable. This product uses folding technology on the left side of the screen and sliding technology on the right side.

When folded to the left, the screen measures 10.5 inches with a 4.3 aspect ratio. It has a 16:10 ratio screen and a large 12.4-inch screen when stretched to the right. One can get an amazing experience of movies and YouTube on the display.

There could be many professions but writing about tech is something that I've chosen and it's what I've been doing. Besides this, I like sketching, roaming, and shopping. I am a casual person and like to taste different dishes and Chinese is my favourite.

LG Samsung iPhone 16 OLED

Apple reportedly approved Samsung and LG Display for mass production of iPhone 16 Pro OLED. Following Apple’s approval for the product and mass production, both Korean display manufacturers will soon commence operation at their plants.

The iPhone 16 series will have four models – Standard, Plus, Pro, and Pro Max. Samsung Display will supply OLED for all four iPhone 16 models, however, LG Display will supply OLED for only Pro and Pro Max. China’s BOE may also supply OLEDs for iPhone 16 and 16 Plus.

Last year, LG Display was many months late in grabbing Apple’s approval for the iPhone 15 Pro OLED. This year, Samsung D’s toughest competitor is back in the game, with competition rising in OLED display supply for the two premium iPhone 16 models.

Apple reportedly streamlined some procedures in LG’s OLED production approval process this time. Besides, the report reconfirms that the Pro models could have thinner lower bezels than the iPhone 15 Pro. Other than this, the OLED panels are expected to be the same as the last year.

It’s worth noting that Samsung Display has already got mass production approval for Apple’s iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro series. The company reportedly targeted to ship 155.6 million iPhone OLEDs this year at the end of last year, but the recent annual shipment estimate has fallen to 130 million units.
