Samsung set to follow the Galaxy Fold with two more folding devices

  • Huawei joins bendable devices trend, revealing its Mate X foldable phone

Samsung launched its first foldable device, the Galaxy Fold, alongside the Galaxy S10 series and the phone will be available starting April 26 in the US and May 3 in Europe.

According to Bloomberg's sources, the clamshell phone will be released in late 2019 or early 2020, followed by the Mate X-style device.

While many spend their first few hours with a new phone setting it up, teardown crew iFixit prefers to rip 'em apart. The $1,980 Galaxy Fold that Samsung plans to release in April folds inward like a notebook. Now, there are reports that Samsung has sent "samples" of its foldable smartphone technology to other smartphone manufacturers like Apple and Google. Anything that makes replacing the charging port more hard is a major negative. This is apparently one of the reasons behind Samsung's reluctance to let reporters play around with the device at its unveiling late last month. There's likely a degree of experimentation on Samsung's part, as folding phones are a new concept and no one really knows what the best form factor is yet. Although Samsung's Galaxy Fold made a big splash online, the company's design was soon outdone by Huawei's Mate X. It is also said to be thinner since the device will not come with the extra display. Samsung is said to be working on an issue where a crease appears in the panel after it's been folded around 10,000 times.

However, it was said such a characteristic could be removed based on customer reactions to the cover display on the Galaxy Fold.

While Samsung works on new models, it's also trying to improve the durability of the Galaxy Fold's display.

Lego also promises endless creative play with a battery that never runs out. In comparison, the Galaxy Fold costs almost $2,000.

Samsung Galaxy S10 launch offers As part of the launch offer, Samsung is offering Galaxy Buds at Rs 4,999 along with the purchase of any of the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones. The company is even considering offering free screen replacements once this occurs.
