Video of Samsung folding cell phone display emerges

SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. -- A video taken at Japan's Flat Panel Display show reveals a Samsung-branded cell phone display that unfolds to provide a screen double the size possible with a conventional display. In the demo, the folding takes place while the screen is actually on.

The working concept device shows a large but conventional looking cell phone with a small screen and buttons on the front. The prototype handset, however, opens up to reveal a large, fold-out display. 

A folding display is probably the next step in the industry's attempt to solve the core problem in handsets: How to minimize the size of the device while simultaneously maximizing the size of the display.
