Samsung Foldable Smartphone Prototype

One of the good things about Samsung’s “try anything” approach to designing smartphones is that it encourages the company’s engineers to think way, way outside the box. AllThingsD reports that Samsung this week showed off a prototype for a new smartphone that features two fold-out panels and that can change colors depending on the mode it’s in. The prototype phone, which Samsung unveiled at MobileBeat 2013 on Tuesday, is also able to use a disposable patch sensor to take a user’s health readings that it can then send to a physician. The full video of Samsung’s wildly experimental smartphone prototype follows below.
