Samsung has shown the concept of a phone that has two screens and can be shut down.
Two screens, one flexible
The idea of Samsung is that such a smartphone should have only two. A smaller one on the front. And then another, large and collapsible, in the middle. So the phone would be able to open it just like Nokia's communications.
Both cases are AMOLED panels. Samsung has a fairly thin screen, which needs to bend the device in reasonable dimensions, managed to achieve, among other things, using a new polarizer.

Both screens must be fully and fully usable to control all features. When you open, the application that initially runs on a smaller gauge appears on the disintegration screen, so work continuity must be maintained. Compared to current smartphones, the ability to use up to three apps at the same time.
The Android operating system has been significantly modified for the needs of dual-view devices (one of which is flexible). Custom apps should be customized. Today, Google has also announced official support for flexible devices through the Twitter social network.
