Samsung will launch up to 3 models of folding mobile phones in 2021


It seems that Samsung has taken a liking to folding and is already preparing

We know that we have been saying for a long time that “next year will be the year of folding mobiles”, but the truth is that each news that reaches us in the face of the near 2021 points more in this direction.

OPPO fully discovered its letters focused on folding mobiles (or unconventional screens) with its OPPO X 2021; Xiaomi has also been working on folding terminals for some time, with several patents through, and it would be too strange if it did not launch into this segment in 2021, and Samsung… Samsung is simply the firm to beat here.

The Korean company has undoubtedly been the one that has taken the most risk and bet on folding mobile phones and 2021 will not be an exception in this field. The proof of this is that The Korean brand could launch up to three folding terminals in 2021.

Information has already reached our ears on several occasions about the replacement for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, the hypothetical Galaxy Z Fold 3, and also the possibility that Samsung would market a more affordable folding, Lite version. Now, an investigation by OLED UBI suggests that a third will be added to these two terminals.

The argument to believe that we will see three folding Samsung during 2021 is that Samsung Display is making three types of foldable OLED panels. Obviously, the Korean giant has not commented on the matter but it is intuited, after all known information, that these three folding will be the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2 with a clamshell design and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Lite.

In this report, in addition, the alleged departure dates: the Galaxy Z Fold Lite will debut in the first quarter of 2021, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will arrive in the third quarter.

Aiming directly at the particularities of each of the new Samsung folding, the Galaxy Z Flip 2 would present a 6.7-inch internal display similar to its predecessor, but the cover panel would be much larger and have a 3-inch diagonal.

With respect to Galaxy Z Fold Lite, the device would have a folding indoor screen which would measure around 7 inches, while for the cover Samsung would reserve a panel of approximately 4 inches diagonally.

Finally, in reference to Galaxy Z Fold 3, the folding interior panel would be around 7 o'clock again inches and for outside the size of the 4-inch Lite version would be repeated by measuring it diagonally. This information is the most doubtful, since the current outer screen of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 measures 6.2 inches, so it would be a significant change.

Likewise, this report also certifies that this Samsung device will have support for the S-Pen, so one of the big rumors about him has a new follower, and it might include camera under the screen.
