Will the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 have a Flex In and Out display?
Samsung Display, the new foldable display prototype Flex In and Out with curiosity. The screen, which can be folded inwards and outwards, can prevent hinge thickness, which is one of the biggest problems of the foldable industry.
The foldable screens of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip series have a distinct hinge difference. Flex In & Out panel, on the other hand, has a larger folding radius, reducing the thickness of the hinge. Samsung calls this hinge a “water-drop hinge”.
This prototype screen is similar to the Z Fold series, and there are also claims that it can be offered to users with the Z Fold5. However, this brings some problems. For example, the top layer of foldable screens is still plastic and vulnerable to scratches.
The Galaxy Z Fold series can avoid this danger by folding inward. But if you fold the Flex In and Out panel outward, the flexible OLED will be exposed. Using the phone in this way will cause the screen to be scratched.
