Why stop with foldable phones? As Samsung’s foldable display tech becomes more reliable, it’s only natural for the company to come up with more foldable devices, including a rumored Galaxy Book Fold laptop.

News of the laptop with a foldable display comes from Ice Universe, a well-known leaker who shared an image of a “Galaxy Book Fold 17” logo on Twitter. This logo seems to have been ripped from Samsung’s website, though Ice Universe hasn’t shared its exact source.

Normally, a leaked image of a product’s logo wouldn’t mean that much, even from a seasoned leaker. But Samsung showed off a few concept foldables in a May 2021 advertisement, and one product in this showcase was a 17-inch laptop with a big foldable display in place of the usual screen + keyboard configuration.

There’s a small chance that the concept laptop from this showcase, which starts as a tablet and folds into a laptop form factor, is an actual product. But fancy novelty laptops tend to do quite poorly, especially when they don’t have built-in keyboards. Perhaps the Galaxy Book Fold 17 is an Android tablet and not a laptop? Or maybe it doesn’t exist at all?

We’ll just have to wait and find out. In the meantime, we’re stuck with novelty laptops like the ASUS ZenBook Duo.
