They report on an internal source who says Samsung is planning to release two new foldable devices either at the end of this year or early next year.
Koh said the company would like to consolidate manufacturing at one place, which makes sense given the limited quantities of Galaxy Fold that are likely to go up for sale. In addition to its main flexible panel, it's supposed to have a smaller outer screen, which Samsung could consider removing based on Fold owners' returns.
During their now infamous tear-down we get to watch as the very innards of the S10 are torn asunder finally revealing the Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Though the Galaxy S10 phones are already available for pre-orders in India, the company will be initiating the deliveries of the device today. It is also said to be thinner since the device will not come with the extra display. Now, there are reports that Samsung has sent "samples" of its foldable smartphone technology to other smartphone manufacturers like Apple and Google. Similar to the way its Galaxy Note opened the door to a rush on big phones, Samsung clearly hopes that it can once again lead the way into a growing market as smartphone sales cool off.
One thing which is sure is that Samsung is determined to push foldable designs into the mainstream.
However, a Samsung spokesperson told Bloomberg the Fold was displayed that way to help divert people's focus to the Galaxy S10 models coming out later this week.
Between Unpacked and MWC, the past few weeks have been all about foldable phones.
Following the release of this clamshell-style device, Samsung will unveil another foldable. An iFixit teardown of the Samsung S10 series shows that the fingerprint sensor is firmly fused to the screen of the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus.
"Leveraging a decade of industry leadership, the Galaxy S10 line is built on our legacy of unparalleled innovation to deliver an exceptional user experience to consumers", said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
There's a nasty but not entirely unexpected surprise waiting for buyers of Samsung's latest smartphone.
