Samsung Electronics Co Ltd on Tuesday (October 29) unveiled a new design for a smartphone that folds into a square, racing ahead in folding devices after it launched its first model in September.
The South Korean tech giant teased the new concept at the Samsung Developer Conference 2019 in the United States.
The world’s largest smartphone maker is powering ahead with the launch of 5G phones and $2,000 foldable handsets as it battles rivals Apple Inc and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd in an increasingly saturated market.
Its new design enables the device to fold in half horizontally. However, Samsung did not provide details about when the square-folding phone would be launched.
