Leaked schematics of an unnamed foldable Samsung have surfaced indicating an all-new design.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold as of now doesn’t feature any accurate launch date and as of now, the world is waiting with bated breath for its long-drawn-out arrival. While we wait for the launch of the brand’s first foldable smartphone, schematics of Samsung’s next foldable device have leaked online giving us a glimpse of what to expect.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is a lot different than the current device as these leaked blueprint show. The new patent filings show a Samsung handset where the display rolls out on a sliding type handset which is quite different from the folding book-like design of the first Galaxy Fold.
The screen on the new Galaxy Fold 2 has a tall but thin profile that is reportedly even more pronounced than the 21:9 Sony Xperia 1. A report by Trusted Reviews states, “If the device takes the proportions of the sketch it’s hard to imagine it is intuitive to use — but should the tech be adjusted for a tablet-sized screen, this design might be a better way of achieving the desired effect of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, which has two separate screens.”
The original Galaxy Fold is the subject of a lot of controversies even bore it has even been released. A few test units were provided to reviewers the world over and in the span of a few days; reports started emerging that the screens were compromised. This happened as hapless reviewers unintentionally tried to remove the protective film thinking it was a screen protector; subjecting the device to dirt and dust.
Galaxy Fold is in a category of its own as it delivers a new kind of mobile experience allowing users to do things they couldn’t do with an ordinary smartphone. Users now have the best of both worlds; a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsung’s largest-ever smartphone display. Galaxy Fold brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsung’s first flexible display prototype in 2011.
