Could this be the next Galaxy Fold? Samsung hint at wearable Smartphone for your wrists.

Less than a month from one of the most exciting launches in mobile history (Samsung’s Galaxy Fold), the tech giant are outdoing themselves, dropping hints of smartphones that look like they’re straight out of science fiction novels.

samsung bendable wrist smartphone

The South Korea-based smartphone giant is taking malleable displays to a whole new level, promoting their ambitions for bendable phone displays.

A patent filed by Samsung last year with the World Intellectual Property Organisation was published a few days ago, depicting displays that can be worn around the wrist, allowing a smartphone to replace the smartwatch as an all in one alternative.

According to the filings, the smartphone will be fitted with magnets at either end to allow the device to keep its shape when curved, and the camera will be on one side of a sliding mechanism.

Tech Blog LetsGoDigital, have created renders based on the patent, suggesting the rear of the bendable smartphone will be fitted with flexible elastic plates constructed from stainless steel. The movement of these plates will come from a number of small links to give the phone its ability to bend.

2. Innovative 5 camera system

Housed in a completely flat back, the Nokia 9 utilizes Zeiss optics to offer a unique 5 camera system. The device captures five photos in one snap, fusing them together for a richer photo using the Light Lux Capacitor in the Snapdragon 845. Each of the 5 lenses are all 12-megapixel cameras with f/1.8 apertures. The middle and bottom centre sensors are RGB, and the other three are monochromatic. Thanks to the combination of these 5 lenses you’ll also enjoy a more detailed depth map of up to 1,200 layers of depth data.

3. Durability

Nokia is always a reliable source when it comes to durable handsets, as expected the Nokia 9 Pureview is a safe bet when it comes to reliability and design. Constructed with a 6000-series aluminium unibody, and Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back, the device is IP67 certified. This means the unit should survive being dropped into a body of fresh water up to a meter deep for half an hour and it is protected from dust.

4. Fast and efficient

The Nokia 9 PureView is powered by Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 (10 nm), which is engineered with the functionality and features that will allow you to do even more with your device.

Qualcomm says:

“with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 mobile platforms, it’s here. Every forward-looking feature—including immersive XR experiences, an intelligent personal assistant and advanced vault-like security—is enabled by the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform. It also delivers up to 1.2 Gbps peak download speeds across a broader spectrum—our platform is smarter and faster than ever before.”

You’ll also enjoy 128 GB of expandable memory and 6 GB RAM for fast and efficient user experience, that can easily handle the heavy lifting of the 5 rear cameras.

5. QI Wireless charging enabled

The battery on the Nokia 9 PureView offers a substantial 3,320mAh capacity, with USB-C
18W wired charging. The device also has support for Qi Wireless charging RX (Qi 10W + PMA 5W). Wireless chargers sold separately.

6. Under screen Fingerprint Sensor

Ever since the battle of the bezel started, smartphones have been looking for a way to eliminate the sensor clogging up the front design, moving the security feature to the rear or side of the handset. However, Nokia have opted to include the latest trend in mobile security to the Nokia 9 PureView – an under the screen Fingerprint sensor to create the perfect combination of a sleek uncluttered rear and streamline front.

7. Display

The Nokia 9 PureView features a 5.99” edge-to-edge pOLED QHD display with 2K resolution and PureDisplay technology. The design of the display lacks a notch and maintains conservative bezels above and below. HDR10 also provides greater contrast, colour and details.

8. Google, Google, Google

The Nokia 9 PureView comes pre-loaded with Google Lens, Google Photos, and Adobe Lightroom for searching, storing, and editing images.

9. Android 9 Pie

The Nokia 9 PureView is loaded with Android 9 Pie, which utilises AI to understand your preferences, tailoring the user experience to improve with time. The device is clean and uncluttered with no bloatware. Plus, you’ll enjoy regular security updates and software upgrades, so your Nokia 9 PureView will stay secure and up to date for many photo shoots to come

The flagship phone, groundbreaking the Galaxy Fold or Galaxy F) is said to offer an incredible 7.3-inch flexible OLED that folds in half. We are also expecting to see a secondary, smaller 4.6 inch OLED “cover display” that lets you continue using the device when the larger display is folded shut.

Other rumoured ground breaking specs include a battery capacity of 6,200 mAh in the form of not one, but two 3,100 mAh batteries.

Like the Galaxy S10, the foldable Galaxy X will be powered by the top-of-the-line Qualcomm SnapDragon 855 chipset, coupled with 6GB of RAM and a minimum of 128GB of in-built storage.
