Samsung received a fresh patent this week, one that involves the usual folding tablet , but this time with a twist: a physical keyboard . We’ve seen multiple foldable devices patented by Samsung , some linked to the Samsung Galaxy X project, others not.

As per the patent, which was published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Samsung’s foldable tablet will have two foldable panels on either side of the display. The reason is for the two foldable panels to protect the main display when they are folded in.

One of the foldable panels is said to have the main purpose of acting as a sub-display unit. This panel will be made of a flexible display that houses several sensors like the illumination sensor, proximity sensor, gyro sensor, gravity sensor and more. Meanwhile, the other foldable panel will be a key input unit.

Nothing else is mentioned about the physical keyboard of the device. On the other hand, Samsung indicated that the sub-display unit serves another purpose when the tablet is in folded configuration. Its transparent cover at the back acts as “a quick-view display” that shows text messages, received calls and other simple information when the foldable panels are covering the main display.
