We already know the Galaxy Z Fold family with its two models as well as the Galaxy Z Flip and its folding screen technology. A leak suggests how they could launch a device with two folds on the screen. Is two better than one?
Samsung’s R&D team appears to be working on a Galaxy Fold device with a dual hinge and fold system that could hit the market by the end of 2021.
This new iteration could complete the Galaxy Z line with a model that once deployed mounts a much larger screen than what we have seen so far (7.6 “on the Fold 2).
The patents registered by Samsung reveal what could be the basis of this device that once deployed ends up offering a tablet-like experience, but that when folded takes up little more than a couple of mobiles one on top of the other.
The anonymous quotes in Nikkei about Samsung and this device suggest that it could obtain a 16: 9 format once deployed, something that with Galaxy Fold 2 could not be achieved and, therefore, the ability to view multimedia content was diminished to see trimmed contents or large bands at the top and bottom.
We have already seen prototypes from other companies such as TCL testing these types of configurations, however, Samsung is the only one that has managed to land several models in the consumer market.
