Samsung will unveil at least two new clamshell phones this year and will have a wider presence in the clamshell mobile market. Samsung’s new patent shows a device that folds in two.
The patent of this device has been registered by Samsung in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), which, compared to previous patents related to clamshell phones, has new enhancements and capabilities. it shows..
One of the things that can be seen in this patent is the use of a dual selfie camera and a fingerprint sensor under the screen. But perhaps the most important major change is the display, which can be folded in and out. By closing the screen inwards, the device screen is not visible, but when folded out, users will have access to the mobile screen.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2 are Samsung’s two future clamshells that are expected to be introduced early this summer. The next generation Galaxy Z Fold in the base version uses 256 GB of internal memory and is equipped with the default operating system of Android 11 and One UI 3.5 user interface.
Samsung’s other clamshell product, the Galaxy Z Flip 2, also comes in two versions with 128 and 256 GB of internal storage and Android 11 and One UI 3.5 user interface. Given that the production of Galaxy Note phones has already stopped, Samsung is expected to support the S Pen in its future phones and the Galaxy Z Fold series, so that fans of this brand will not feel short of it.
This is the first time a clamshell phone uses a fingerprint sensor under the display. However, it seems unlikely that Samsung would have intended to make such changes for the Galaxy Flip 3.
