Samsung is known as the market leader in terms of foldable screen smartphones. As of now, the company has two types of folding phones – Galaxy Fold 2 that folds out into a large tablet, and the Galaxy Z Flip is a clamshell-type folding phone.
Although, it looks like Samsung is working on a new clamshell-type folding smartphone that can fold not only inward direction but also in the outward direction. This type of handset needs a large cover display as this info has also arrived from a new patent.
Back in October 2020, Samsung applied for a new patent called ‘Apparatus and method for illumination of camera in electronic device’ at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and this 68-page document was recently published on April 15, 2021.
According to LetsGoDigital, the design patent revealed a clamshell phone with a Galaxy Z Flip-like display. The patent also suggests that this device can be foldable in two directions as the hinge is redesigned for this functionality.
When folded, the flexible screen is not affected by the outside. If you bend the device in other ways, you can access the larger screens on the front and back. Besides, you can use the phone in a fully open position and then use the full flexible screen.
Furthermore, the Korean phone maker has also picked a dual punch-hole camera for this design. When implementing a punch-hole camera, it is not possible to integrate a flash for safety reasons, as described in the documentation. Instead, the company wants to use the light emitted by the display.
Aside from this, the patent document also talks about an in-display fingerprint sensor. It is worth mentioning that currently there are no foldable smartphones available where the fingerprint scanner is processed under the screen.
Lastly, it is not confirmed whether Samsung will implement the double punch-hole camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor in its folding smartphones. Meanwhile, the company is rapidly working on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2/3 that will be launched around July this year.
