The other new Samsung foldable is apparently a clamshell, which isn't a word we hear a lot in smartphone design these days - but we did hear it very recently when discussing Motorola's plans for a potential new Razr phone.
The Outfolding device was the first Samsung tested, and will be delivered after the vertically folding device. In addition to its main flexible panel, it's supposed to have a smaller outer screen, which Samsung could consider removing based on Fold owners' returns.
The report also remarked that Samsung now has the capability to produce almost 2.4 million foldable displays in a year and is mulling over ramping up production to 10 million per year.
According to a report by Bloomberg, the South Korea maker is developing two more foldable smartphone models and one of it is similar to the Mate X. "The time is ripe for experimentation". The Galaxy Fold, Samsung's first foldable phone, is also the company's priciest, costing $1,980. According to Bloomberg, Samsung is now using mock-ups to fine-tune the design and this could be a successor to its W series flip-phones for the Chinese market. And, just punctuate that point, the latest device to receive the demolition derby treatment is the Samsung Galaxy S10. All phones are water resistant and pack a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The vice president also said that Samsung had to overcome a tougher challenge which was to create a "perfect close" for the foldable device.
Still, even after paying $1980 for a smartphone, owners should not have to face this problem, but let us see how Samsung is able to tackle this obstacle down the road. Courtesy this Bixby Vision, the Galaxy S10 series will come with a new "Try and Buy" feature.
