While the above image shows off the Lenovo Folio foldable tablet that's already been teased at a trade show, Samsung may be working on its own version. Documents have come to light (opens in new tab) which show Samsung has been working on the patent for a foldable tablet design.
While the Samsung Galaxy F foldable phone will offer a large fold-out screen, some people may want even more display space. Imagine a tablet that folds, it could be more portable, offering a laptop-like experience with one half as a keyboard.
The tablet shown in the patent is likely smaller than the final unit will be. Expect the tablet to follow the Galaxy F smartphone with an announcement either as early as next month or to follow at the launch of the Galaxy F early next year.
Current tablets with keyboard cases do offer a laptop alternative. But with a foldable screen they could be made smaller and offer a built in keyboard that doesn't require charging and vanishes when not in use.
