Samsung to build two more foldable phones, report says

Sources of Bloomberg believe that Samsung is working on a clamshell-like device, as well as another that folds away from the user, just like the Huawei Mate X. The iPhone maker hasn't announced any plans for a similar gadget. Many designs will not succeed.

It's a gentle, mocking reminder that real folding phones are still outlandish devices.

At just $69.99 the "LEGO fold" comes in well below its $2,000 Samsung equivalent or Huawei's $2,600 5G Foldable Mate X. The Galaxy Fold comprises a 12cm front display, and a 19cm interior screen.

The Galaxy S10 series is the latest flagship smartphone lineup from Samsung, and it has packed the lineup with a number of cutting edge technologies. The outfolding phone will not feature an external display, meaning the design will be thinner than the clamshell design, as well as the Galaxy Fold. A crease appears on the device's display after it's been folded around 10,000 times, which could be a major problem for customers.

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

The imperfection develops on a protective film that covers the touch sensor bonded with the display underneath, according to the report. The devices come with an ultra-wide-angle 16 MP lens and a 123-degree Field of View (FoV).

Samsung can now produce approximately 2.4 million foldable display a year. Now a buyer can make a down payment for their Galaxy S10 phones and grab the smartphone followed by the instalments for the next 24 months.

Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max also use OLED components supplied by Samsung. The South Korean company shipped 291.3 million phones previous year while Huawei sold 205.8 million, according to Strategy Analytics. The main highlights of the new Galaxy S10 are Infinity-O display with AMOLED screen, up to 12GB of RAM, reverse charging and much more.

Poking fun at Samsung, Lego tweeted an image of the Lego Fold, which actually is the toy company's Pop-Up Book set, mimicking Samsung's deep black marketing style.
