After a complete redesign, Samsung launched Galaxy Fold, the world’s first commercially available foldable smartphone. However, Samsung isn’t stopping just yet as reports of an upcoming Galaxy Fold 2 started pouring in a few weeks ago.
Earlier intercepted by LetsGoDigital and later confirmed by a report by Bloomberg, it is now confirmed that there is a foldable device in the making as evident from the new teaser released by the South Korean giant itself. The 24-seconds teaser gives insight on what we can expect with the upcoming foldable smartphone.
First up, it will not have a vertical fold as Galaxy Fold but rather stick to a horizontal fold. In fact, the device will have a 6.7-inch tall screen when unfolded and will dive into its clamshell design when folded that will mimic a nostalgic flip phone style that was hugely popular a few years ago.
The video looks super exciting although not much of the details are available w.r.t to the upcoming Galaxy Fold 2 or whatever Samsung ends up calling it. The device will have a Galaxy S10-inspired punch-hole camera setup at the front that will allow it to be truly full-sized 6.7-inch foldable AMOLED screen that Samsung developed over the years.
Apart from that, the phone will be less thick than Galaxy Fold which appears to be two phones stacked onto each other when folded. When unfolded, the Galaxy Fold 2 will appear as a normal form factor almost identical to Samsung Galaxy Note 10 but will resemble a clamshell design when folded horizontally.
As per the timeline, the device could appear first at the Samsung Developer Conference 2019 on November 13 followed by a second glimpse at the MWC 2020 in Barcelona when Samsung Galaxy Fold was showcased as well and will probably be cheaper than Galaxy Fold as well.
