Samsung might be working on two more foldable smartphones

According to a report published today through The Bell, Samsung is working on two more foldable smartphones. Called “Type G” and “Type S,” the devices are reported to be two larger variants of the delayed Galaxy Fold.

Starting with the Type G, the device reportedly features an 8-inch display when unfolded and two sides that fold in to form the letter “G.” The Type S reportedly features a larger 13-inch display when unfolded and is somewhat shaped like the letter “S.”

Samsung filed a patent for the Type S back in November 2018, so we have an idea of what the device might look like in the image above. The report didn’t say when the Type G and S will be released.

Because this is only a rumor, take all of this with a grain of salt. That said, a report in March also alleged that Samsung is working on two foldable devices — an out-folding device and a clamshell device. The older report claims that Samsung will announce the out-folding device either later this year or early next year.

Unfortunately for Samsung, the company’s facing quality control criticisms over recent Galaxy Fold issues. Samsung officially delayed the Galaxy Fold’s public launch in China and other regions due to the display issues.

Whether these issues will also show up in Samsung’s two other rumored foldable devices is anyone’s guess. That said, Samsung will likely take their time with the two devices in order to avoid any additional public snafus.
