Seoul: Samsung reportedly plans to launch three types of folding smartphone models next year.
According to OLED research firm UBI Research, they will probably be called Galaxy Z Flip 2, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the new Galaxy Z Fold Lite.
All three models will use ultra-thin glass as cover windows.
The Galaxy Z Flip 2 will have a 6.7-inch internal screen and a 3-inch external screen.
The size of the internal screen is the same as the first Galaxy Z Flip, which was launched earlier this year. However, the size of the external screen has increased from 1.1 inches of the original Flip.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Lite will offer the same display configuration (probably without camera technology below the display) paired with cheaper built-ins to achieve a lower price level.
The successor to the Z Flip will come with the same 6.7-inch folding panel, but with a larger 3-inch external display compared to the external display of the original Z Flip, which is only 1.1 inches.
The report also stated that Z Fold3 will have S Pen support.
The company previously introduced the Galaxy Z Fold2, which has a 6.2-inch cover screen and a 7.6-inch main screen when unfolded.
Galaxy Z Fold2 is Samsung’s third folding smartphone after Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Flip.
