The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2
According to the patent, published by WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Office), the device’s display can, most likely automatically, lift up, making space for more speakers, in order to deliver better-quality sound. That way, a resonance space will be created. The screen would tip up, leaving most of the case behind, to create this additional resonance space.
However, this idea seems to also bring forward some design problems: it will most likely make the phone lose on an IP68 rating, and maybe even on durability.
It’s important to note that this is only a patent, and sometimes, patents don’t see the light of production or are abandoned for a later time. It remains to be seen if the South-Korea-based tech giant is willing to go in this direction of foldable and flexible smartphones, or not.
