Samsung said before they were testing several ways of foldable smartphones. and was granted some patents about them. The first foldable smartphone they made and it is out to the market is the Galaxy Fold and now the next smartphone will be a clamshell-type, similar to the before flip phones of the past but with the technologies of today.
Rumors are saying the device will have a 6.7-inch screen when it is unfolded and probably will be thinner and cheaper than the Galaxy Fold.
The clamshell foldable smartphone may be unveiled at the MWC2020 in February 2020 as the Galaxy Fold was this year.
The teaser above was shown at the Samsung Developer Conference 2019 that took place on October 29-30, 2019

Samsung Electronics may load some of its upcoming Galaxy smartphones, including the Galaxy S11 series, with rollable displays and rotating cameras.
The South Korean tech giant filed a patent with the World Intellectual Property Office in April for its combination of a rollable display and a rotating camera module, showed a patent document uncovered by Lets Go Digital based in the Netherlands.
The document showed an image of a device with a front screen that had a narrow metal frame for a rollable display to slide through.
When the user slides the screen downward, stated the image description, the rear of the device stretches to make the front screen larger.
The patent also mentioned a dual camera with a rotating mechanism, similar to the one featured on the Galaxy A80 phone launched earlier this year for limited markets such as Thailand and India.
Samsung has been testing rotating cameras in which the lens rotates from the rear screen to the front screen when the user chooses selfie mode, having first used them in its Galaxy A series. It now appears to be combining the technology with its flexible display technology, according to the reports.
“If the display is rolled out, the camera automatically rotates,” said the Lets Go Digital report. “In addition, the camera is placed under the flexible display.”
Smartphone vendors are showing growing interest in the rotating camera technology as they consider adopting flexible displays for smartphone screens, according to industry officials.
LG Electronics is also reportedly preparing to equip its next flagship model, possibly the LG V60 ThinQ, with a camera module in the rear that rotates and pops up in the front.
Samsung Display will likely supply up to 50 million units of OLED display panels for Apple in the second half this year, thanks to the positive market response for the latest iPhone lineup, according to news reports on Oct. 22.
Money Today from South Korea reported on the number of panels Samsung display maker provided for the US tech giant in recent months.
In the third quarter, ending September, the display firm supplied 22.2 million units of 5.85-inch and 6.46-inch panels for Apple’s iPhones --3.9 million in July, 8.4 million in August, and 9.9 million in September. The supply volume in September, in particular, is 40 percent higher than the initially planned 6.9 million units, the report said.
In October and November, the display maker is forecast to provide 9.8 million and 5 million units, respectively. Depending on the supply volume in December, the number of panels given to Apple this year will likely reach 40-50 million.
The two companies were once in a strained situation because of lukewarm iPhones sales earlier this year. The supply volume in the first half stood at 6 million, far below the previous estimates. After a series of intense negotiations, the US smartphone maker reportedly reimbursed the display manufacturer $683 million for missing a sales target that the two firms had agreed upon.
In the first quarter, Samsung Display posted an operating loss of 560 billion won ($478.4 million) while logging 750 billion won in operating profit in the second quarter, thanks partly to the reimbursement from the US partner.
Samsung Display is the main display supplier for Apple, shipping 90 percent of the OLED panels for the iPhones, including the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max,
LCD-based iPhones, like the iPhone 11, feature displays manufactured by Japanese Display, LG Display, and Sharp.
LG Display has recently become a new OLED screen vendor for Apple, offering 7-8 million panels for the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Samsung is working on Under Display Camera UDC tech, expects to launch it in late 2020 on new devices.
Samsung Electronics is expected to release a smartphone next year with Samsung Display's OLED panel with Under Display Camera (UDC) technology. The equipment that implements UDC is called 'HIAA2 (Hole In Active Area)'.
Samsung Display decided to receive the first HIAA2 equipment at the A4 plant in Asan Campus, Chungnam, this month. The company plans to bring in mass production facilities early next year. The A4 plant has two 6th generation (1500mm × 1850mm) OLED production lines. The production capacity is 30,000 sheets per month based on substrate input.
HIAA1 equipment has already entered the first stage investment (phase 1) equipment in Asan 2 Campus A2 factory. I plan to bring in additional quantities. Samsung Display imported HIAA1 equipment in August this year and started mass production testing.
According to domestic market research company UBI Research, the production capacity of 5.5 generation (1300mm × 1500mm) rigid-flexible OLED line installed in the A2 plant is 194,000 sheets per month. It is 144,000 rigid OLEDs and 50,000 flexible OLEDs.
HIAA1 equipment and HIAA2 equipment mass production test time difference is 2 months. Entered A2 and A4 plants respectively. Both HIAA1 and HIAA2 instruments are equipped with a Philoptics laser system in the Wonik IPS vacuum chamber. When Phil Optics, which received an order from Samsung Display, delivers the laser system to Wonik IPS, it is reported that Wonik IPS will be attached to the vacuum chamber and delivered to Samsung Display.
HIAA1 is a dedicated 'hole display' device that drills the front camera hole within the OLED screen frame. Samsung Display could make a hall display without the HIAA1 equipment but had to dig a hole for each process step. The production cost can be lowered.
UDC is known for making transparent displays only in-camera apertures. Compared to not going through the display, the key is to reduce the distortion of light entering the camera lens. Research and development are underway to reduce the number and size of pixels and increase substrate transparency and transparency. Polyimide (PI), a substrate of the existing flexible OLED, is not transparent but has a yellowish tinge.
HIAA2 is a device that drills a lot of small holes using a laser in the camera hole of the display. In the process, it is referred to as laser etching (etching). It increases the transmittance of light.
Samsung Display is planning to bring in mass production facilities in early next year after wearing HIAA2 equipment this month.
Usually, Samsung Electronics has been using the best and latest technology in the Galaxy S series, a premium smartphone, and then spreading it to other smartphones. Hall Display OLED was first applied to the Galaxy S10 released in the first half of this year and expanded to Galaxy Note 10 in the second half.
However, Samsung Electronics is launching the foldable phone Galaxy Fold, which is higher than the Galaxy S this year, and it is also observed that the first target of UDC technology will be the next foldable phone. The introduction of HIAA1, a dedicated device, will increase the output of hall display, while UDC display, which has a low level of difficulty, will be applied to foldable phones produced in small quantities.
The industry believes that the implementation of UDC requires not only to display technology but also camera algorithm technology. The software compensates for yellow and blurry images.
The color of the image on the camera changes to yellow unless a transparent substrate is used. In addition, as the light transmittance decreases through the display, the blurring of the camera image is difficult to avoid. The development of front camera technology is needed at the same time, and the production cost will go up.
Yang Byung-deok, managing director of Display Development Group, Samsung Electronics, said earlier this year at the Galaxy S10 Display Technology Briefing that "the level of camera holes is not visible at all is not possible within a year or two." A senior official at Samsung Display said on the 16th, "The decision made by Samsung's wireless business division" was a question about the possibility of next year's UDC display-enabled smartphone.
