Samsung Roller Laptop appears on WIPO patent website

Samsung is working to consolidate the foldable smartphone segment. Competition is finally emerging, but so far the company is still the king of this segment in global markets. After all, the vast majority of foldable smartphones are limited to the Chinese market. That might change in the future, but we expect the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 to keep the segment under the Korean company’s belt. Although Samsung has bet on the foldable segment, this does not mean that the company is not experimenting with other technologies. A few years ago, Oppo surprised the world by presenting the concept of a smartphone with a rollable screen. This technology seemed much more practical than foldable smartphones. A few months later, Samsung confirmed that he was also working on rollable and stretchable products. A new device that looks like a “Samsung Roller Laptop” has just been spotted.

LG, another Korean company, was about to launch a rollable product. However, its smartphone business died out and the device never saw the light of day. Oppo, on the other hand, says it’s not made for mass production of these products or said a few years ago. Now the big question is whether the company will be the first to introduce a rollable product. Well, going back to Samsung, the company is laying the groundwork for rollable products. The latest evidence points to the existence of a laptop with a rollable screen and a rollable keyboard.

Samsung Roller laptop could arrive in the future

Samsung has been working on flexible screen phones, slider screen phones, slider screens with S Pen support, and other apps. All of these concepts were spotted on the World Intellectual Property Organization’s patent website. Now we just spotted a new Samsung laptop on the same platform. The new product gives us a look at the design of Samsung’s next laptop.

According to the pictures and descriptions, the upcoming new Samsung laptop will come with a roller design. This means that the laptop will fit inside a cylindrical roller. Judging by the patent images, to use the laptop, one will have to pull up to bring the laptop screen up and access the keyboard. A user will also need to pull the keyboard forward. With the screen and keyboard removed, the user will be able to experience the full laptop experience.

We assume it’s easy to slide the screen and keyboard to the roller. So you can grab and carry it even in small places. Apparently, Samsung is working on making more portable laptops in the near future. Therefore, we are curious to see if this design will also make way for the smartphone segment in the near future.
