Gone are those days when laptops used to be bulky devices that were tedious to carry on the go. Today there are laptops that are handy and ready to travel with you wherever you go. Not just that brands are also innovating newer forms and mechanisms to make this even more portable. Enter folding laptops. Lenovo was the first to launch the ‘Think Pad X1 Fold’ a foldable laptop in January 2020. Now, Samsung is looking to carry forward this innovation with its ‘Galaxy Book Fold’ in the near future.
The information about this rumored launch was shared by a reliable leakster Ice Universe through his Twitter handle. A screenshot with the name of the device was posted recently. The device is named ‘Galaxy Book Fold 17’ hinting it to have a 17-inch display.
Galaxy Book Fold 17 Details (expected)
Galaxy Book Fold is rumoured to feature OLED Sync and ‘Seamless motion speed’ along with 120% of the DCI P3 colour space coverage which could be impressive. The company could promote it as a foldable laptop with a touchscreen rather than calling it an oversized tablet, though it might perform both roles seamlessly.
Although no information has been out about the other features of the device, it could have an Under Display Camera as showcased by Samsung earlier this year. It seems as if Book Fold has been in the works for a while as Samsung first teased about it in May during a short SID 2021 video.
