Samsung phones shrink extend

Galaxy S phones are excellent and Samsung is also bringing amazing Galaxy Z foldable phones to the market. Beyond that, Samsung is finding ways to make the smartphone experience epic, with a recent patent application indicating how you use future Galaxy slidable/rollable phones that shrink and extend.

Samsung has been working on slidable display prototypes for years and showcased at many times such as MWC. Future Galaxy slidable phones may be equipped with a rollable display, which would allow the device to shrink and extend as per the user’s requirement.

Future Samsung phones may shrink and extend based on where you are.

With a slidable display, you can turn your smartphone from a regular phone to a large-screen tablet, even without folding the screen. Earlier this year, the Korean tech giant presented the Slideable Flex Duet concept, which features a display that extends both sides.

Back in 2020, Samsung registered a design patent as well as the working functionality of smartphones. At first impression, you might determine it odd, but it would become reality a day, for sure. Through patent, the company described four different modes, which a slidable phone could follow.

As mentioned in the patent application, the four modes are:

  1. Band Mode
  2. Phone Mode
  3. Phablet Mode
  4. Tablet Mode

Band Mode: This shrinks the smartphone’s dimensions, making its form factor narrower in order to deliver excellent grip while walking on the street.

Phone Mode: It turns the slidable device into a regular smartphone shape for regular use, or you can use it indoors/outdoors with your primary hand, even when you are walking.

Phablet Mode: This mode makes the regular phone a Phablet, which you can use while standing on the street with both hands. It will provide a better typing experience as well as a relaxed feel to the user.

Tablet mode: As the name suggests, slidable phone can turn into a tablet by extending the rollable display from both sides. When a user is sitting inside home, this mode will enhance app navigation and typing experience.

Samsung Rollable Slidable Patent

Apart from the current one, Samsung registered various design patents and branding trademarks. It’s up to the company whether it produces such a product or not, which it secured via patent registration. Meanwhile, you can see the full patent application and supporting documents on the WIPO site.

Honor Magic V3

Samsung announced its most anticipated foldable phones on July 10 in Paris. Yesterday, Honor launched the new Magic V3, which challenges the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with a thinner design and some cool specs. The new Honor foldable is considerably thin compared to the phones available.

Honor’s new Magic V3 measures 9.2mm (camera bump not included) in its folded state. It goes further slimmer to 4.35mm when you unfold its 7.92-inch main screen. Oops, there’s a clearly visible hole for the camera on the inner display, with Galaxy Z Fold 6 featuring UDC for years.

The Chinese vendor managed to make its new foldable slimmer with an upgraded hinge of 2.84mm thickness. It won’t break before 500,000 folds while the frame is made from 7-series aluminum alloy. It’s the most highlighting spec that makes it superior to its Samsung counterpart.

Samsung reduced the weight of the Z Fold 6 to 239 grams but the Magic V3 weighs just 226 grams. Honor also brought IPX8 water resistance to the Magic V3, making it the first in the lineup to feature official protection against water insertion.

Galaxy Z Fold 6 packs a 4400mAh battery, but Honor’s Magic V3 has an edge here too. It boasts a 5150mAh silicon-carbon battery with 66W wired and 50W wireless charging. Both devices use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, offering robust performance and efficiency.

Honor Magic V3 comes with a 6.43-inch LTPO cover screen with FHD+ resolution. It’s also rated for 2,500 nits peak brightness and supports stylus input. Notably, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 also supports S Pen input but on the inner panel only with a special pen crafted by Samsung.

In terms of optics, the Magic V3 features a 50MP primary with OIS, a 50MP Periscope with 3.5x optical zoom, and a 40MP ultrawide camera. The cover and main screens also house 20MP front-facing cameras. It lacks under-display camera technology which arrived 3rd time on a Samsung Fold.
