Among those trying to release a foldable device is Samsung. The South Korean electronic giant has been working on a foldable smartphone which is expected to be ready next year. However, news emerging suggests the tech company has plans for other gadgets too.
According to Korean media, Samsung's PC division VP for marketing, Lee Min-Cheol, "Samsung is collaborating with display makers to develop laptops and foldable displays that will not just simply fold in and out but create new value value and experience, amid the changing market trends for laptops."
Lee Min-Cheol went on to add that Samsung was also working with other manufacturers in flexible AMOLED display for the bendable laptop.
There is little real form of innovation in PC these days, consumers are tired of most of the products which are the same and doesn't add much value. To make things exciting again, Samsung have to go beyond creating a flexible device and make something that consumers can find utility in.
"PCs play a centric role among IT products in increasing connectivity with other mobile devices, so we will continue developing innovative PCs with partners like Intel, Microsoft and KT,"Lee Said.
The electronic giant sales around 3.2 million PCs annually in Korea, the US, China and Brazil, which cover total of 45 percent of the entire PC market.
