Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra yesterday. In addition to the trio of smartphones, Samsung also unveiled three high-end tablets as part of the Galaxy Tab S8 series. Samsung’s next high-end devices will not be available until the middle of 2022. Around August, the successors to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 – probably the Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 – will be released. In addition, the business appears to be working on a Galaxy Z Slide smartphone with a pull-out screen as well as a double-foldable smartphone.
The South Korean company is working on whole new form factors in the background. A patent for a dual-folding Galaxy Z Fold smartphone has been submitted by Samsung. It is not, however, about a Z-Fold design, as we have previously reported.
This phone, on the other hand, is hinged on both horizontal and vertical axes. You can fold the display outwards vertically and inwards horizontally to keep it safe when you’re carrying it around. It’s about a brand-new, one-of-a-kind design that opens up new user possibilities.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold has the ability to fold both inside and outwards.
Samsung Electronics submitted the patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) on July 13, 2021. Today, February 10, 2022, a 57-page paper named “Foldable electronic gadget” was issued. The identical evidence had been presented a year before in South Korea’s native nation.
The innovative Samsung phone, when unfurled, has the same screen size as the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The folding line, on the other hand, is radically different. This time, the vertical fold line is to the left of the centre. As a result, the right screen part is larger than the left. It’s also a screen that folds outward.
The horizontal fold line comes in helpful at this point. This one has an inward folding mechanism and is exactly in the middle. It looks a lot like the Galaxy Z Fold horizontal hinge variation that LetsGoDigital covered in November of last year. The design is relatively similar to that of previous PDAs.
Of course, you may use the phone as well as fold it in this manner. This allows you to use the device as a mini laptop, with the bottom screen serving as a virtual keyboard and the top screen serving as a display for the content.
