Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4

Samsung is no stranger to uncommon mobile offerings, popularizing the phablet form factor with its Galaxy Note family and launching tablets with large 12.2-inch displays. Next up on Samsung’s unique mobile device roadmap? It may be foldable tablets.

According to a report out of Korea, Samsung is prepping a tablet device that can be folded twice to convert it to a smaller, smartphone-like form factor. The prototype device is said to feature an 8 or 9-inch OLED display with an HD resolution.

It’s said that Samsung is currently hoping to release this foldable tablet sometime in 2015. As SamMobile notes, though, it’s possible that the unique technology could limit this tablet’s availability at launch and could also make it fairly expensive. We saw a similar situation last year with the Galaxy Round, which featured a curved 5.7-inch display and was only available in Korea, where it sported a 1.089 million won ($1,014 USD) price tag.

As I mentioned before, the Galaxy Note, 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Round show that Samsung isn’t afraid to experiment with unique displays and form factors. That’s why I could see Samsung prepping a foldable tablet in its labs, if only to show that it can be done.

Would you be interested in a tablet that can be folded up into a smaller, smartphone-like form factor?
