While we are still a long way from the introduction of Samsung’s first foldable laptop, new reports say that this laptop will use the same design as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. Samsung plans to use a teardrop hinge in its first foldable laptop, the Flex Note.
Using a drop hinge reduces the thickness of the device, reduces screen creases and allows the two halves of the laptop or phone to be closed without a gap; For this reason, Samsung’s decision to use this hinge design seems logical.
Some experts do not consider the unveiling of a laptop with a drop hinge to be a good idea; Because they believe that this design will increase the weight of the device and the less folding of the screen is not a priority for laptop buyers.
The Galaxy Flex Note may be unveiled by next year. Speculations about the unveiling of this laptop are not based solely on patent or trademark registration. Samsung has shown the prototype of the mentioned laptop many times.
Samsung’s foldable laptop was first displayed at CES 2022, and then we saw the prototype of this laptop at MWC 2023; A 13-inch foldable laptop that can be turned into a 17-inch wide tablet when opened.
It is not yet clear when exactly Samsung will unveil the foldable laptop, but some experts believe that the unveiling of this laptop is very unlikely before the second half of 2024 due to the unfavorable market conditions.
Currently, Samsung fans have two foldable phones among the options to buy the latest products of this company. Considering that the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the price of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 did not change much compared to the previous generation, we have to wait and see what the price of the Samsung laptop will be.
