Remember those rumors that the Galaxy Fold successor will be a flip phone with a horizontal instead of a vertical crease? Well, Samsung may be hard at work on the Fold 2 already, hints a report from the Taiwanese supply chain today, citing unnamed industry sources.Â
Galaxy Fold 2 release date
The Fold 2 will, surprise, surprise, be released in 2020, claims the report and not much else but the screen size is known about its specs. We’d assume that it will be stuffed to the gills with everything the Galaxy S11 will have to offer, and then some, though.
The Galaxy Fold is more in the tablet realm when unfurled, while its successor is supposed to be a fairly compact clamshell when tucked in your pocket, and even when open the 6.7″ display is exactly the size of the one on the Galaxy S10 5G.Â
Samsung is planning to finally launch the Galaxy Fold in the summer, after the spring release fell through, and if it has indeed resolved the teething problems with the handset, we could be witnessing the dawn of a whole new era of cell phones.
As for the Fold 2, Samsung will reportedly start sourcing its respective 6.7″ bendy display in November, indicating a mass production and launch timeframe for the first half of 2020. If Samsung is prepping something along the RAZR vein, we can only commend its efforts, as, let’s face it, nobody wants to lug around a pocket Bible of a phone with a visible crease in the middle that costs two grand to begin with. We would be pretty hyped to see a Galaxy Fold clamshell and not only for old times’ sake but as an actual practical solution to our big-screen phone woes.
