Samsung Developer Conference 2019 event was held at the San Jose Convention Center in California. At the event, the electronics giant revealed a clamshell folding phone design, amongst many other things. The design resembles flip phones of yesteryears. Samsung hasn’t officially christened it yet. However, we have a strong inkling that this could very well be the Galaxy Fold 2.

The first-gen foldable phones were marred by design impediments and market adversities. Samsung, a pioneer in the new design language too struggled to hit the release deadline. Still, upon its launch, the tech gurus have been pretty much cheering for the future of foldables. And as it seems, Samsung is also plunging headlong to the new design territory.

This one fits into a more compact form factor in contrast to its predecessor, the Galaxy Fold. Besides the aesthetics, the brand also gave us a glimpse of the software side of things with how One UI 2.0 adapts a Unified User Experience to the new hardware flexes.

Coincidentally, the upcoming Motorola Razr phone is also rumored to clad this clamshell design. And as time unfolds, the technology will mature and more brands might proliferate the new design landscape. Or so we hope!
