With the Samsung Galaxy Fold in limbo at the moment, the foldable handset is far from the most ambitious smartphone design that Samsung has been thinking about creating. Last month, a patent received by the South Korean manufacturer revealed a phone that adds screen space and extends the size of the display by rolling out the additional real estate when needed. We are still years away from seeing something like this hit the market.

Another patent received last month by Samsung was just published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Spotted by LetsGo Digital, the patent covers a phone that is pulled from each side; when this is done, more screen real estate rolls out from the side casing turning the phone into a tablet. The screen can expand up to 3 times its size when it is converted from a phone to a tablet, relying on a motorized "rolling mechanism" to roll out the screen and roll it back into the casing. The frame edges can be used as a grip and the flexible screen moves on rails which helps support it. When the device is closed and reverts back to phone size, there are slots that come together to make the unit solid and stable.
