The Samsung Galaxy Fold has yet to be launched and as such, no one really knows how well the phone will do, or if the market is ready for such devices. That being said, it seems that regardless of the outcome, Samsung could be pushing ahead with the technology all the same.
This is according to a report from Bloomberg who claims that the South Korean tech giant has plans to launch a new foldable phone in early 2020. The publication claims that the device will feature a 6.7-inch display that will have a folding design reminiscent of the flip phone, where upon being folded shut, it will sport a square-shaped design.
If you’re wondering why this sounds familiar, it is because recently there were some patents filed by Samsung that revealed a design that is exactly as described in Bloomberg’s report. Given that it was a patent, there was no telling if it would be made a reality, but this new report certainly lends some credence to that.
This would not be the first time we’re hearing about such a design, where previously it was suggested that Samsung might want to take on Motorola with a flip-style foldable phone of their own. Take this report with a grain of salt as we still have quite some ways to go before 2020.
