Samsung hinted at the latest hybrid slidable and foldable displays on Tuesday; among them is the ‘Flex Hybrid’, a combination of two technologies that allow the display to fold and slide.

People can fold the screen from the left side, and the right side will have a slidable technology that will extend the screen to give a more tab-like experience on a mobile device.

Although not much is known about the device’s other specs other than the 10.5-inch display in an aspect ratio of 4:3, which can be extended to a 12.4-inch larger screen in a 16:10 screen ratio.

The exhibition will also have a 17-inch large-screen slidable display which was previewed at Intel Innovation 2022. This slidable display works on two concepts — Flex Slidable Solo, which can expand the screen in one direction, and Flex Slidable Duet, which extends the display in both directions.

Other innovative products showcased are the new QD-OLED 2023, an improved version of the 2022 QD-OLED.; Samsung has already added the latest OLED technology to the 77-inch TV, the largest in the QD-OLED family that includes 55, 65, and 34-inch displays and a 49-inch ultra-wide monitor.

Samsung also unveiled a New Digital Cockpit targeting the self-driving vehicle market, combining a 34-inch display with a 15.6-inch display.
