the Surface Book’s hinge is perfect for a foldable OLED


I was watching some videos about the Galaxy Fold and a few people mentioned that foldable OLED panels can’t be folded ‘crisp’ like a piece of paper, there has to be a bit of a gap, just like the Surface Book has. This got me thinking; could Andromeda have a foldable OLED display and be like a mini-Surface Book, using the same hinge as the Surface Book? (obviously a miniaturized version of the hinge). You could use it as a tiny laptop and it would be stable, or open it fully and use it as a small tablet. Maybe this is why Andromeda is still in the labs, maybe this is what they’re thinking of doing instead of having 2 separate displays. Brad or Paul, what do you think? Have you heard anything like this?

    I think it's a good idea to do that, but I have not heard anything about it yet.

    There could be a complexity with the way the Surface Book hinge rolls out. It doesn't fold and unfold at an angle. Using this hinge might mean there is a gap between the two screens when it folds out. A re-worked hingle could work though.

    Haven't used a surface book but the Huawei foldable seems to have that sort of hinge and appears to be a better design than the Samsung as it folds flat.
