Samsung may be in the research and development of double fold mobile phone, and announce it at the end of the year as soon as possible

Samsung may be developing a mobile phone that can double fold. According to Nikkei Asia, the mobile phone will be divided into three parts, each connected by a hinge

And it will be announced “as soon as the end of this year”. This mobile phone will also be Samsung’s third folding screen mobile phone after Galaxy Z fold and Z flip.

Nikkei Asia said that the final design of the mobile phone with double folding screen was still confirmed, but their sources believed that the screen ratio would be 16:9 or 18:9. Compared to the 25:9 Galaxy Z

Fold, 16:9 or 18:9 can be more convenient for developers to adapt their applications.

In fact, we have seen the concept of multiple folding before. For example, TCL once showed a concept machine that can fold three times, and Xiaomi also showed a concept machine video that can fold left and right (up and down).

Samsung’s research and development of dual folding screen mobile phones may be aimed at attracting advanced users who are still using normal size mobile phones to switch to folding phones. Samsung once said that it might not launch a new note series mobile phone this year, but did not explain why.

Some people think that this may be related to the global shortage of chips under the epidemic, or to streamline its mobile phone series, but it may also be to test whether note users are ready to use folding phones. By introducing new folding phones, Samsung can also ensure that consumers have more choices of folding screen phones and are more likely to find the one that suits them.

But then again, whether this double fold mobile phone can be mass produced depends on whether Samsung can solve the problem of chip shortage.
