Samsung’s Next Foldable Phone Teased With New ‘Clamshell’ Design

Samsung's new foldable prototype has a vertical fold with tall display

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Fold Successor’s design in the company’s event ‘Samsung Developer Conference 2019’. Samsung’s new design is shown as a clamshell foldable phone.

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2

The company launched its first foldable phone ‘Samsung Galaxy Fold’ in September. The fold of the phone is like a book. Although there are several drawbacks in the phone for which users are required to take precautions. However, that is not stopping the company from bringing and developing more fold phone ideas.

Samsung’s new foldable prototype has a vertical fold when unfolded it has a tall display and when folded it comes to a square shape. The phone features a punch-hole camera on the front center of the display. The price of the second Samsung fold is expected to be less expensive than the previous model.

Samsung recently announced its Exynos 990 SoC and 5G Exynos Modem 5123. We can expect the company’s next foldable phone will have this chipset and modem.

A video is also published by the company showcasing the clamshell design of the phone. The video shows that the phone might have three cameras with normal mode, wide-angle mode, and telephoto mode. The video also shows the upper half of the display works as a secondary display when partially folded.

Motorola also introduced a foldable phone ‘Razr V4 ‘ with flip-up design which is soon to be launched by the company. We might expect the price of the phone would be lower than Galaxy folds and Huawei Mate X, both of them costs around 2000$. Every new technology is expensive in starting as a developer takes time to research out more convenient and cheaper ways to produce the same technology.

The company did not reveal the specific pricing of the phone or when the phone will be launched. However, we have rumors that the next Samsung fold phone m, might get released in MWC 2020 or this might not be accurate. We can expect that Samsung may hold a separate event for the launch.

Samsung Developer Conference 2019

The conference’s main focus was to discuss and commit more foldable devices with better designs. The company also made some announcement in the conference which includes One UI 2update for android interface to make one-hand use accessible and to add dark mode in more apps. Samsung also shared more plans about Bixby. To view the details of the conference you can see the live video given below.
