Samsung's Galaxy Fold won't be available to consumers at least until next month after its unveiling in February, but the South Korean tech giant is believed to be already developing two other models of foldable smartphones. However, unlike the inward-folding Galaxy Fold, the rumored devices will supposedly have different methods of opening.
According to a new report from Bloomberg, one of the handsets will adopt a Huawei Mate X style of folding, meaning that it will fold with its screen outside. The other model is supposedly designed to unfold just like the Fold but in a vertical orientation and it is said to also incorporate a secondary display on the outside.
Samsung will reportedly announce the clamshell-style foldable phone in late 2019 or early 2020 while the launch window for the other model is likely set at a later date. The pricing details for both devices remain unknown as of this time, but they may likely be close to the Fold's hefty price of $1,980.
The latest report on Samsung's push for foldable phones comes at a time when it is still working to address some technical hurdles such as the creases that appear on the Fold's screen after numerous instances of folding. That said, consumers who will purchase that phone will likely be eligible for screen replacements at no additional cost.
