Earlier this year, we received information that Samsung was working on bringing three new foldable devices to market in 2021. Those devices were the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the Galaxy Z Fold Lite, and a new Galaxy Z Fold S. The latest report from ETNews says we’re getting four new devices.
We are approaching 2021 and that means we are also getting more rumors about upcoming devices. The latest rumor is that we could get up to four new foldable phones from Samsung, two of which would fall under the Z Fold line while the other two would be Z Flip models. The report doesn’t stop there as it also indicates that Samsung is planning to end its Galaxy Note line of products as it is being replaced by the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which offers S Pen support.
“The Note series will be discontinued at some point. The company also plans to incorporate a pen input feature into the Galaxy Z Fold3. With the Note series no longer different from other Samsung smartphones, it is reported that Samsung Electronics has not set a specific plan for the new Note series. “
Rumor has it that the high-end Galaxy Z Fold 3 of the new foldable phones will have S Pen support. We’d have to wait until the second half of 2021 to see them, however, as that would give the new Galaxy S21 series enough headroom. The new leaflets would also offer 5G support and are expected to start mass production sometime in August.
The report now also claims that Samsung may be working on shipping a new rollable device in late 2021 or 2022, although it won’t be the first company to give us a rollable smartphone, as we are already expecting from LG new rollable device sometime in the first half of 2021 as part of the company’s Explorer project.
