Have you ever wondered why we can have 2 screens on a portable game device like the 3ds but we cant have 2 screens on your phone?
Samsung is creating a decent number of prototype duel screen smartphones this year. They plan to create between 2,000 – 3,000 units just in the first half of 2017. The phones are not destined for mass marketing they plan for it just to be a test bed for the company to see how a duel screen phone would function.
They are hoping that if it is successful to sell a mass market version by 2019 but even that seems pretty hopeful. Because of how simple the current design is with the prototype. Since it is just a pair of rigid 5 inch OLED displays joined by a single hinge. One key reason why they want to do this is because they want to be a pioneer in the duel screen market for smartphones which who knows could be a up and coming market that is dominated by Samsung.
