Recent reports indicate Samsung is working on new display form factors for upcoming smartphones. Now, new information suggests this new form factor could be a "Tri-Fold" tablet.

According to an exclusive report from Gizmochina and tipster Yogesh, Samsung is expected to launch a Galaxy Z Fold Tab in the first quarter of 2022, and it will support the tech giant's new S Pen

According to the leak, the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold Tab will feature improved ultra-thin glass (UTG), along with a new stylus that is said to debut with the rumoured Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 expected to launch soon.

This report doesn't suggest any specs for Samsung's triple-folding device, nor does it show how it might look. While we take these leaks with a grain of salt, Samsung is known for its foldable smartphones like the Galaxy Z Fold 2. There's room to believe the tech giant has this new tablet in the works.

The new leak comes in light of TCL's announcement of a bizarre Fold 'n Roll, which adds a rolling display to turn a phone into an all-in-one tablet/phone hybrid.

The design may vary, as it's still in its development cycle, which means we may not end up getting a triple-foldable at all. However, seeing how a foldable tablet will bring new competition to the best tablets on the market today, and Samsung's past foldable devices, we wouldn't put it past the tech giant.
