It’s safe to say that foldable smartphones have remained a niche product, largely due to being… really expensive. But Samsung has been a trailblazer in the technology, releasing the Galaxy Fold line of smartphones. And it seems Samsung will be doubling-down on the foldable smartphone trend with the Galaxy Z Fold Tab, a large device that reportedly folds not just once, but twice.
This news comes from a tipster named Yogesh, released via an official report from GizmoChina. If the leak is to be believed, the Galaxy Z Fold Tab will launch in Q1 2022, and will feature a display that folds in two places to create a unique form factor. There are no renders or leaked prototype images, but the Galaxy Z fold will likely be similar to a TCL concept phone we’ve seen previously (pictured above).
It’s expected that more info on the Galaxy Z Fold Tab will be announced alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 in the upcoming launch event. At this event, the leak suggests that a new S-Pen will be announced, which will be included with all three new devices. We do not know, however, how the new S-Pen will differ from the current version.
Like all leaks, this should be taken with a grain of salt. The timeline could change, or the product could be scrapped all together. If the product does come to fruition, though, it could suggest that Samsung is really focusing on foldable tech as a way forward.
