An obvious design of a foldable device is a smartphone-cum-tablet hybrid, where a smaller display unfolds to become a larger one. This is exactly the kind of design that Samsung went with, for the Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone.
However, it seems that for the Galaxy Fold’s successor, the Korean company might be going in a different direction. Thanks to a series of newly-leaked images shared on Twitter by Ice Universe, it reveals that Samsung could be working on a vertical folding design for the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, where it spots a design that unfolds to become a regular-looking smartphone.

However, it is worthy to note that this isn’t a new design. Back in October during the Samsung Developer Conference, the company showed off concept images of such a device, but this is the first time we’re seeing the device in real-life. How accurate or real these images are is unclear, so take it with a pinch of salt for now.
