This is closer to the traditional foldable phones that are available in the market today – like the Galaxy Z Fold 2. However, Samsung has slightly tweaked the design that allows you to fold the display two times, making it more compact than the current phones.
Slidable phones could be a reality one day, too
What if you can simply pull out an additional display from under your existing one, and it can act as an extended screen? This is what Samsung’s slidable display concept looks like.
It’s essentially like pulling out a drawer extension so you have more space to work with, while maintaining a minimal footprint.

It is worth noting that these are just concepts and may not necessarily end up being manufactured. However, this shows us that Samsung is continuing to work in this direction, and some of this may eventually end up being used in a future smartphone.
