Samsung’s head of mobile, T.M. Roh, recently took to his blog to tease a potential redesign of the company’s foldable smartphones. In a blog post titled “Blending Practicality, Originality, and Synergy,” Roh hinted that the next generation of Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip phones may be lighter and thinner.
In the blog post, Roh emphasized Samsung’s design philosophy of combining practical functionality, originality, and synergy. He claimed that the company has “innovated” to make the latest foldables even slimmer and lighter than their predecessors. This suggests that Samsung is continually improving and refining its foldable devices in terms of both form and function.
Samsung had previously announced that it will unveil its next generation of foldable devices during its upcoming Unpacked event on July 26. This year’s event will be held in Seoul, Korea for the first time and is set to showcase a range of new products, including smartwatches and earbuds alongside the highly anticipated foldables.
To encourage customer preorders, Samsung is offering a $50 credit for those who sign up before July 25. This incentive is likely to generate excitement and boost early sales for the new foldable models.
Rumors surrounding the new foldable smartphones suggest that they may come with a revamped hinge and a larger screen for the Flip 5. These updates would address previous concerns about durability and usability, making the devices even more appealing to potential buyers.
For those unable to attend the Unpacked event in person, Samsung will be livestreaming the event on its website on July 26, starting at 7 a.m. ET. This allows technology enthusiasts and Samsung fans from around the world to tune in and witness the unveiling of the latest foldable devices.
With this potential redesign, Samsung is aiming to solidify its position as a leader in the foldable smartphone market. By focusing on slimming down and enhancing the functionality of its devices, the company is likely to attract even more customers looking for cutting-edge technology in a convenient, portable package.
