With foldable smartphones now being the in-thing, there could be another Galaxy Fold smartphone that could offer an outwards folding design as far as foldable displays are concerned. This purported device could be the next in line after the release of the Galaxy Fold that was launched during Samsung’s Unpacked event on February 20.

Now, Samsung is said to have patented (translated) a foldable phone whose display is on the outside when folded. This is in stark contrast to the current-gen Galaxy Fold whose display opens up on the inside (towards the users) when it is folded.

No much details are available about this new purported outside folding smartphone that Samsung is said to have patented. The device’s fitment for general everyday usage is again a matter of concern as a foldable smartphone is always bound to cost a premium when it is officially sold in the markets across the world. Hence, you could share your thoughts/insights on the next-gen outwardly folding phones that are rumoured to have been patented by Samsung.

As far as foldable phones are concerned, the current Galaxy Fold is very much a reality. It offers key technical specifications such as:

  • 7.3 inch screen
  • Android 9.0 (Pie) operating system
  • 64-bit octa-core SoC
  • 10MP front camera, and an 8MP RGB depth camera - dual snappers
  • 12MP telephoto camera  along with 12MP wide-angle camera  and 16MP ultra-wide camera
  • 12GB of RAM
  • 512GB fixed internal storage
  • LTE, HSPA, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, and USB 3.1 connectivity
  • 4380 mAh battery.

Finally, the latest reports about Samsung having patented next-gen foldable phones add substance to earlier reports that hinted about the existence of newer foldable smartphones branded by Samsung. As of now, it is worth noting that even brands like Huawei have resorted to showcasing smartphones with foldable display prototypes. Hence, there could potentially be an all-out healthy war with the foldability of smartphone displays being the focal point.
