Samsung reportedly developing an inward-folding smartphone

We’ve heard over the past few years that Samsung is developing a foldable smartphone. It’s believed to be an outward-folding handset. Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything about the device but recent reports suggest that it might be out in a few months.

If a new report is to be believed, that’s not the only foldable smartphone that Samsung has in the pipeline. Samsung Electronics and its display affiliate Samsung Display is reportedly working on an inward-folding device with a 3R curvature.

The report also mentions that Samsung’s work on foldable smartphones over the last four to five years has been based on both concepts. Samsung reportedly worked for years on a smartphone that can be folded inward before going in the opposite direction a couple of years ago.

It’s unclear why Samsung has decided to go back to square one and start off again from its initial concept. What that means for the outward-folding handset’s future is also unclear. Will Samsung release the handset we’ve been hearing about or make us all wait a little longer for this inward-folding device?

Only Samsung knows the answers to these questions right now. Hopefully, it will provide more clarity on this in the near future.

Will have to see what they release but if they can deliver to their concepts videos then that would be amazing.

Though I think that is a few years away and number of iterations.

If they can refine the s9 to have smaller lip top and bottom of the phone to make it true bezel free and include dual speakers, dual camera, bigger battery but keep same width and thickness then I will be happy

When Apple is developing something, I keep an eye on it. When Samsung develops something, I quickly move on. Samsung is constantly throwing darts at the wall hoping something would stick. Nothing wrong with that as a consumer. Because Apple is more focused and tries less things, I guess that causes people to anticipate it’s future release. If that was confusing, I am not an Apple fan.

Apart from a rumoured Apple Car, there has been nothing for years that Apple have been developing that someone has already done; including the FPS which everyone was racing for but Apple with their Billions in profits bought it for a year.

I would call this “development of new technologies”. And yes,sometimes they do it right, somotimes not so much but at least they try to make something new…
Now… tell me one thing that apple invented or developed in last 2 or 3 years?

I’m not here to defend Apple. Down vote if it makes you feel more like a man.
