“Samsung is using a new 7.3″ Infinity Flex Display that allows the entire device to have a tablet-sized screen that can be folded to fit into a pocket. The main display is QXGA+ resolution (4.2:3), and when it’s folded, a smaller separate 4.6″ HD+ (12:9) display is used for the phone mode. This phone display is flanked by rather large bezels compared to what we see in modern smartphones, and you can see the display in operation throughout Samsung’s latest video,” reports The Verge.
