The Korean tech giant showed off a little surprise at the Samsung Developer Conference. Samsung showed off an unannounced foldable interface prototype at the start of its One UI 2 keynote.
Like the Galaxy Fold, in contrast to the Microsoft Surface Duo which features two different displays in a clamshell design, this mystery computer features a folding screen. This new device, rather than folding horizontally, folds vertically like a flip phone.
As you can see in the different pictures taken at the conference, apart from the general form factor, we can not confirm about the phone. With this new hardware in mind, Samsung’s software is designed to adapt to the system as it folds and unfolds.
The first foldable device, the Galaxy Fold, featured a plastic-covered interior display. This plastic is so sensitive that it could potentially be damaged even by Samsung admitting a hard fingernail press.
It appears that this concern for potential Samsung devices could be a thing of the past. We could see a foldable with an internal glass display sooner rather than later based on industry rumors surrounding an ultra-thin glass (UTG) manufacturer Samsung has invested heavily in.
