  • Samsung shows concept design of its next foldable phone: This is how it looks

    first_imgLast week some media reports suggested that Samsung is working on more foldable smartphones for next year and the years to come. It appears that the reports were true and the company is indeed working on more foldable phones. At Samsung’s Developers Conference on Monday, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer showed off a new foldable smartphone concept to the public. The foldable concept looks a lot like a Clamshell, unlike the Galaxy Fold. Notably, this is just a concept but we believe it is safe to say that Samsung’s next foldable smartphone can sport this design.Samsung is one of the first smartphone manufacturers to launch a foldable smartphone this year. The South Korean smartphone manufacturer launched the foldable smartphone aka the Galaxy Fold at Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona earlier this year. For Galaxy Fold Samsung received a lot of criticism from reviewers around the world. The criticisms were due to the screen breaking issue. Samsung acknowledged the problem and is now out with a fix. Samsung recently launched the Galaxy Fold in some countries including India. Galaxy Fold is launched in India with a price of Rs 1,64,999.The Galaxy Fold folds like a tablet while the new foldable concept folds into a much smaller form factor. In other words, the foldable concept device from Samsung folds mostly like a flip phone. At the Developer’s conference, Samsung also released a video of the new foldable concept that shows the device from all angles. As this is a concept device the final design of the next Samsung foldable phone may see some changes here and there.Besides the design, Samsung also shows off the way users can play videos on the new foldable concept phone. The video shows that when folded the top screen of the foldable concept phone can play the video while the bottom screen will turn into a keyboard. The company hasn’t revealed any further details about the next foldable phone. The name of the phone is also unknown.The Samsung Galaxy Fold was first launched at Mobile World Congress 2019. It is likely that Samsung may follow the same tradition and announce its next foldable phone with Clamshell like design at next MWC in 2020. MWC mostly happens in February every year in Barcelona. Samsung is yet to reveal launch details about its upcoming foldable phone. Besides the new foldable phone Samsung is likely working on a cheaper version of the Galaxy Fold, some reports suggest.
