Samsung has done it again. While the jaws are still dropped as the Galaxy Fold sold over 1 million units, the South Korean giant started working on the second foldable device. It was rumored for a long time but we finally have the renders and not just any renders; live images were leaked online which gives a good look at the Foldable 2.0.
Samsung had teased a concept video of the foldable phones but we weren’t sure that the second one could show up so early on the radar. The design is reminiscent of the flip phones that ruled a decade, now called the ‘clamshell’ design. It is tall and can be vertically folded. The display is an Infinity-O display with a centered punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera, just like the one present on the Note 10 Plus. The phone does have side and bottom bezels but lacks a thick chin, like on the Motorola Razr.
The phone was a working model and not just a dummy. The images clearly show that Foldable 2.0 will carry forward the One UI design language, albeit it will be tweaked to suit the apps. When the front of the phone is folded, a small display is visible that is showing the time, date and notifications which sit right next to the LED flash and dual camera setup.
The rear of the phone seems to be made out of glass while the hinge is similar to the one found on the Galaxy Fold, just a tad bit smaller. The volume and power buttons are placed in the upper right-hand-side whereas the bottom of the phone houses the loudspeaker and type-C port. It won’t have the 3.5mm headphone jack, for sure.
Even though it’s heavily rumored that the device will carry a price tag of $1000, don’t get your hopes too high as this device might fall in the “affordable foldable phones” segments as its imminent from the pictures – fewer cameras, less cool design, etc. Moto Razr doesn’t have a 12GB RAM nor does it equip the latest Snapdragon processor. The phone could be launched alongside the much-anticipated S11 series. Stay tuned for more updates.
