Some people might argue that Samsung was in an unnecessary hurry to pull the trigger and launching a foldable phone was a mistake at that time. The event also met with a series of malfunction which kind-of delayed the actual launch of the foldable device but eventually, it was Samsung who come up with the idea and very first foldable smartphones.
Now, when the company has successfully launched the in-folding smartphone Galaxy Z fold as well as the clamshell Galaxy Z flip, it might be working on a double-folding foldable smartphone, citing three sources familiar with the topic. The sources also claim that the new device could be revealed at the end of this year. Although at the time of uncertainty, it's hard to say final words.
The double-folding smartphone isn't much discussed yet, but it is believed that the design will be more suitable for apps. "The design is set to make the unfolded screen aspect ratio be in line with the mainstream ratio of 16:9 or 18:9, so more video games and other apps could run more smoothly with better resolutions on the device," a source elaborated to Nikkei Asia Review.
At this time, it is not clear that whether there will a dual-folding foldable smartphone something similar to Xiaomi's prototype foldable, which allow the user to fold phone back the top and button or it would be something we haven't seen so far. We have also seen some patents and concepts for a device that folds into a Z shape, with one side folding backward, and the other side folding inwards. Presumably, Samsung is following the latter approach, as the firm has moved away from out-folding designs due to heavy screen cost or damage concerns. The latter solution would mean the screens won't be entirely exposed to the potential damage as a folding experience.
