Samsung teases a different kind of foldable phone

Samsung could be working on a different kind of foldable phone after the Galaxy Fold. There were already rumors that the company was planning a phone that folds vertically instead of horizontally, making it more akin to the flip phones of days past. Now, though, Samsung has shared a video showcasing the new form factor, though there's no indication that this will be a real device anytime soon.

The short video, posted on YouTube, shows the phone folding vertically in half, and ways that the UI can adapt to the transition, such as showing a camera feed on the top half with the camera controls on the bottom half. Samsung didn't share any more details about this new form factor, though.

Samsung might not be the only one working on a phone with this form factor, though. Motorola is holding an event on November 13, and it's believed that the company might unveil its own foldable phone under the Razr moniker, which will adopt a similar style of fold.

Foldable and dual-screen devices are still in their early stages, and companies are still exploring the best way to use the technology. Recently, TCL showed off a phone that folds twice, offering a much larger canvas when fully extended. However, there's no indication that it'll be a real product any time soon.
