Samsung's Next Foldable Phone May Have Just Leaked

By Shabana Arif on at

Samsung has already teased its clamshell foldable phone and now it seems that photos of the device may have leaked on Chinese social media.

The Galaxy Fold launched with its improved design back in September, and the company was teasing its next foray into foldables by October.

The biggest leap from its first generation foldable to its second was the change in design, from a vertical fold to a horizontal one, making for a clamshell handset. It also looked smaller compared to the Galaxy Fold.

Now it seems that photos of the smartphone have been leaked on Chinese social media site Weibo, with leaker Ice Universe sharing the images on Twitter.

"Tired of Samsung Galaxy Fold? Let's take a look at Samsung's latest clamshell folding screen phone. Is such a phone your dish?" reads the (badly) Google translated caption from Weibo.

While it certainly looks in line with what we're expecting from the new handset, it's worth noting that there are only two rear cameras along with the front hole punch camera located at the centre of the display. It also has a pretty sizeable bezel.

This may be a fake but based on the scarce amount of details we have, we don't really have many other features to help whittle it down, so take it with a big pinch of salt for now. [The Verge]
