A month after the release of the Galaxy Fold 2.0, Samsung announced its new plans for a foldable flip phone concept.
Blending nostalgia and innovation, the reinvented flip phone appears similar to the traditional “clamshell” model but with a technology that allows the display to fold in half like the Galaxy Fold.
The device folds in half neatly into a square according to the sneak peak video.
“This brand-new form factor that we’re now exploring will not only easily fit in your pocket, but it also changes the way you use your phone,” said Hyesoon Jeong, head of Samsung’s framework R&D group as quoted in a report by The Verge.
Samsung announced the mysterious device during the company’s Developer Conference on Tuesday (29 Oct) in San Jose, California.
The new device has no name yet, nor has Samsung revealed enough details about its features and release date in the market.
Being the pioneer in foldable technology, Samsung said that the company is “working on advancing new foldable form factors and bringing a new foldable device to market.”
Samsung also announced its upcoming One UI 2 update with Android that allows full dark mode, animated icons, and better accessibility when using the device with one hand. -/TISG
