After breaking into the foldable smartphone market by presenting the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3, which were just launched in August 2021 yesterday, Samsung seems to be expanding its wings by expanding its foldable technology to the laptop segment.
This speculation stems from a recent report which states that the South Korean giant is working on a foldable laptop that is allegedly going to be named the Samsung Galaxy Book Fold 17, and it is said that this device will be showcased by the company as a concept at SID 2021.
Obviously, the report comes from a leaker with a Twitter username named @UniverseIce, who confirmed the Galaxy Book Fold 17 moniker for the upcoming device. Unfortunately, detailed information regarding the leaked specifications of the foldable laptop is still hidden.
However, other leaks say that this laptop will likely carry a 17-inch folding screen, equipped with very thin bezels around the screen, and will also include an Under-Display Camera (UDC).
Talking about folding screen laptops, Lenovo has actually become the first brand to present a foldable laptop by presenting the ThinkPad X1 Fold last year. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold carries a 13.3-inch folding OLED screen with a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels.
In addition, the Lenovo foldable laptop is powered by an Intel Core i5-L16G7 processor (5 CPU cores, 5 threads) with clock speeds reaching 1.4 GHz (base) and 3.0 GHz (boost), combined with RAM (LPDDR4X 4,267 Mhz). ) 8 GB and SSD up to 1 TB.
Although not the first, if it is true that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Book Fold 17, it is possible that this Samsung foldable laptop will beat the performance and existence of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold which was asked to be the world’s first folding screen laptop. Considering, Samsung’s success in terms of sales for the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 smartphones, which can be said to have stepped on a fairly high order number.
