One of the foldable phones that Samsung is working on has a clamshell-like design while the other folds in a similar way to the Huawei Mate X.
“No one knows what the ideal design is yet,” said Bryan Ma, vice president of devices research at IDC tells Bloomberg. “The time is ripe for experimentation. Many of these designs won’t be successful, but industry players will learn valuable lessons along the way.”
Even though the Galaxy Fold has yet to be released, Bloomberg says that it is still too early to get a sense of how much demand there is for foldable phones.
The vertically folding phone could be unveiled later this year or early next year. While the other Samsung foldable would be announced later on.
The company’s first foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold is set to be released on April 26th in the US for $1,980 USD. While Samsung’s other flagship phones, the S10, S10+ and S10E are set to be released March 8th.
Samsung Canada has confirmed that the Galaxy Fold will be coming to Canada later this year but no Canadian pricing or availability has been announced.
