The South Korean tech giant, Samsung, has patented a lot of designs for smartphones in past, it is also one of the first companies to bring a foldable phone to the market. Interestingly the company has yet again updated its patent list, but it is not for a smartphone this time.

According to a report by LetsGoDigital, Samsung has filed a patent for a foldable Galaxy Tablet. The patent has been applied at USPTO(the United States Patent and Trademark Office), which has got a green light. Under the category ‘Display Device’, the description of the patent hints that Samsung is working on a Galaxy tablet with a flexible display.

Foldable displays have always been breezy for Samsung these days. However, the South Korean giant has come a long way and has even faced a few failed attempts in the process. At present, its Galaxy Z Fold2 is a practically viable foldable device with a 7.6-inch external display and the company is already working on a successor.

Currently, Samsung has tablets in the Galaxy Tab S, A lineup, and considering the foldable displays are costly, it should probably debut under the Tab S-series if Samsung were to launch a Foldable Tablet. Talking about the design of the patent, we see the bezels are minimal except the centre portion.

If we talk about the patent, there is no cover screen and it looks to have an in-folding mechanism. The sensors, LED flash, and the selfie shooter is placed at the centre of the top. Speaking of which, the display has some sort of recess/notch on both top and bottom.

On the backside, the device doesn’t seem to have any cameras as the report points out. Turning it in portrait mode, we see speakers and a Type-C port for charging on the left. On the opposite side of this, there are the power button and another speaker.

However, this is all we know so far, we hope that this patent hit the markets and not just end up as a patent design.
