Samsung Introduces a Bunch of New Folding Devices

Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip are just the beginning

If you thought Samsung would stop making foldable devices after the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip, think again.

Samsung used this week’s CES event to unveil a slew of foldable devices, including three foldable phones and a foldable laptop, according to Android Authority and an official press release.

First, a pair of foldable smartphones. For obvious reasons, these prototype designs were codenamed “S”-fold and “G”-fold. Foldable “S” phones use three panels to fold into an S shape. Samsung says this will help raise the size limit for future smartphones.

The “G” fold also uses three folded panels, but they fold inward somewhat like the letter G. The company says this design benefits phones made for outdoor activities like hiking, as the inward G-fold allows you to store the device anywhere without damaging the screen.

Then there’s the Flex Swipeable. At first glance, the prototype smartphone looks like a normal device, but at the touch of a button, the screen flips to one side, giving users more screen real estate.

Finally, we saw the Flex Note, a foldable laptop from Samsung. With a continuous foldable screen, this looks like a big foldable tablet, but the company says the added screen real estate makes it easy to turn the bottom third into a keyboard if needed. They also suggest that the bottom can be used as a video editing slider, pen input panel, etc.

These steps make sense, considering that Samsung is currently the only company making a high-capacity foldable phone, despite the lack of competition from brands like Oppo and Motorola.

However, these are just prototype devices with no release date.

Samsung Introduces a Bunch of New Folding Devices

The Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip are only the beginning

If you thought Samsung would stop creating folding gadgets after the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip, well, think again.

Samsung used this week’s CES event to unveil a slew of folding devices, including three folding phones and one folding notebook, as reported by Android Authority and an official press release.

First up, a pair of folding smartphones. These prototype designs are codenamed the “S” fold, and the “G” fold for reasons that will become obvious. The “S” fold phone uses three panels to fold out into an S-shape. Samsung says this will be useful for increasing the maximum size of smartphones in the future.

The “G” fold also uses three foldable panels, but they fold inward to slightly resemble the letter G. The company says this design benefits phones made for outdoor activities, such as hiking, as the inward-facing G-shaped fold allows you to store the device just about anywhere without scratching the display. 

Next up, the Flex Slidable. At first glance, this smartphone prototype looks like a normal device, but with the push of a button, the display rolls out to the side to give the user more screen real estate. 

Finally, we have Samsung’s take on a foldable notebook, the Flex Note. With one continuous folding display, this resembles a large folding tablet, but the company says the increased screen real estate will allow you to easily turn the bottom third into a keyboard when necessary. They also suggested the bottom could be used as a video editing scroll bar, a pen input pad, and more.

These moves make sense when you remember Samsung is the only company currently making folding phones in high volumes, despite some slight competition from brands such as Oppo and Motorola.

However, these are just prototype devices and have no release date(s).
