Samsung Galaxy Fold was the company’s first foldable device that was announced back at MWC 2019. It didn’t do so well since many of the review units malfunctioned because of an apparent issue with the phone‘s hinge mechanism. However, the smartphone manufacturer is back on track and is expected to launch the fixed device at the upcoming IFA 2019 trade show. Samsung is also apparently working on its next foldable device, which might be cheaper than the first one. As per a report by SamMobile, the upcoming foldable phone by the company sports the model number SM-F700F and could be more affordable. 

Samsung packed the very best hardware on its first Galaxy Fold. The handset gets three displays and 512GB of internal storage. As per the report, the company’s next foldable device could cut down on internal storage to offer 256GB of internal storage and hence, get a less expensive price tag. However, we suggest you take this report with a pinch of salt since the information doesn’t come via an official source. In addition, there’s no confirmation on what kind of a foldable smartphone Samsung will come out with next. There have been some patent sightings that hint at a clamshell design or an outward folding display, similar to the Huawei Mate X but nothing is confirmed yet. 

As mentioned earlier, Samsung is reported to re-launch its Galaxy Fold smartphone soon. The company might announce a fixed and properly functioning Samsung Galaxy Fold on September 6. Rumours suggested that the launch would take place by the end of September but it seems like the company has hastened it. The report also came out at the time when the Samsung India online store hosted a product webpage for the Samsung Galaxy Fold, which again hints at the device’s imminent launch.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC in the US and some other regions while it will run on a Samsung Exynos chip, which is most likely the Exynos 9820.
