If 2019 was going to be the year of foldable smartphones, we’re yet to see the truth in these words. While both Huawei and Samsung announced their foldable smartphones. Both products didn’t make to the market yet. Of course, Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is a special case – After all, the device returned to the development process after reviewers found a huge failure in its design. Despite the Galaxy Fold problems, Samsung won’t be giving up the foldable smartphone and already has one planned for 2020.
This time, however, Samsung will opt for a foldable design that will resemble its clamshell smartphones. However, if we are going to compare, it will be similar to Motorola’s RAZR. Samsung’s new handset will be a vertically foldable smartphone, with the aforementioned clamshell form factor. When unfolded, its OLED display will reach 6.7-inch in size.
The report that stated the existence of this product, also mentions its arrival in 2020. This device will be cheaper, with just a single vertical bent in the middle. Furthermore, the new design will allow users to easily fit the phone inside their pockets even when the handset is unfolded. This handset will be much more compact than the Galaxy Fold. As you expect from a clamshell-esque smartphone, there will be a 1-inch external display to show limited but useful information always that the device is folded. It’s a really small display, so we can’t see it popping out notifications content.
Since all these details need to be confirmed by more consistent pieces of evidence, we advert you to digest this news with a pinch or two of salt.
