Samsung folding phone patents are appearing thick and fast at the moment. Only yesterday did we see one revealing a device similar to the Huawei Mate X, and today we’ve been treated to something potentially more exciting.
Spotted by LetsGoDigital, the latest Samsung filing appears to detail a foldable phone with a tall, slender display which looks like it can bend round into a cuff – potentially allowing it to be worn on the wrist.

Most of the patent is written in Korean, but there are numerous images detailing what the device could look like if it were to become a reality.
It appears the top section wouldn’t bend, as this is where the front and rear-facing cameras – and we’re assuming most of the electronics – are located, with most of the middle section of the phone able to fold round.
The chin at the base of the device also appears to be non-foldable, although it’s smaller than the top static section of the device.
