While both Samsung and Huawei have already officially presented their folding smartphones, these still do not go on sale as both companies have postponed the start date of its commercialization. However, this does not prevent the Korean firm from continuing with its future plans and is already working on a new model of folding mobile.
Korean media ETNews says that Samsung is already working on a new folding device with a different concept than the current Galaxy Fold. This mobile would fold on its horizontal axis and, once deployed, would have a smaller size: 6.7 inches, thus changing the folding format.

According to the aforementioned means, this terminal would adopt the popular format known as "shell" because once the device was folded it would adopt a shape similar to that of a square, in contrast to the Galaxy Fold, that manages to acquire this form when it is fully deployed.
This future Samsung mobile has some features compatible with the first folding smartphone presented by the Korean firm. However, as the fold of the panel is made to the inside, and this future terminal would also have a smaller screen (1 inch, supposedly) on the outside so that, once folded, you can see information such as the time or notifications.
It is also reported that the panel of this Samsung smartphone would begin to be produced later this year, so it would be presented at the beginning of 2020. Although it is not known whether it will be presented as a renewal of the Galaxy Fold or as a new line of folding phones.
