Samsung released its first foldable smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, worldwide a few months ago. Developers took a little bit more to make the devices available due to a durability issue with their display. There were even some tech experts who reported that the screen of the smartphone was crashing. Samsung succeeded after a while in finding a solution for that issue, and now Galaxy Fold is available for sale.
Currently, reports about Samsung’s plans for introducing another two foldable smartphones are resurfacing. We could expect the devices to appear next year.
According to the Korea Herald report, Samsung is supposed to release new versions of foldable smartphones in 2020. These devices will bring more features, such as a bigger screen, but in a more compact form. Other rumors indicate that LG Electronics are also thinking of launching a foldable smartphone.
Samsung To Release Two New Folding Smartphone Models In 2020
It is possible that the next Galaxy Fold generation to come with a clamshell shape design, in which the other display will be only utilized for showing battery status, notifications, and some other significant details. As for its display, this will also indicate some charging animations which were also encountered on the OneUI 2.0 beta model.
We could expect costs to be somewhere around $845. The next-generation of foldable smartphones is supposed to make its way in worldwide markets in February 2020. It is also possible for the device to be presented alongside the Samsung Galaxy S11.
Choi Bo-young, an analyst at Kyobo Securities, stated: “Samsung’s plan to expand the foldable product lineup depends on the market response to the clamshell model slated for launch in 2020, but it is clear that the firm will increase the lineup.” Bo-young also indicated that Samsung is preparing for a business of 6 million foldable smartphones in 2020 and almost 20 million by 2021.
