News regarding Samsung’s upcoming foldable-display smartphone has been circling the rumor mill for a while, but a new Korean report may provide more info.
Samsung’s go-to-market strategy seems to begin with a ‘dual-display device’ that would feature two separate displays that combine when opened up. With their new dual-display foldable smartphone, Samsung will be able to gauge the market’s reaction to a new form factor. Furthermore, you’d only be able to get this in limited quantities, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Round which Samsung introduced before releasing the edge did.
A second foldable device seems to be in the works too, featuring a single flexible display panel. Industry experts claim that the first generation of Samsung’s foldable display smartphone folds inward, affording protection for the phoen body.
The source did not share when either of Samsung’s foldable smartphones will be unveailed. Samsung could show off the “dual-display” foldable smartphone at CES in January so that it doesn’t pull attention away from the Samsung Galaxy S8’s unveiling at Mobile World Congress in February.
