The Morning After: Samsung's clamshell folding phone

  The Morning After: Samsung's clamshell folding phone If I was going to start my own tech site or media vertical, with no intention of turning a profit or even being all that knowledgeable, I'd do food gadgets. I won't shut up about the Instant Pot, I own a sous vide machine (that I now have a guide for) and the contents of my kitchen drawers are the equivalent of the crying face joy emoji. The festive season and the epic-scale meals that accompany it make it a peak opportunity for simplifying your established cooking norms, but it's also a gamble. My mum has an Instant Pot, sure. Will she use it for sauces or sides for this year's Christmas dinner? Probably not. It's about consistency.

Yonhap reports that Samsung will release a clamshell foldable smartphone before the announcement of the Galaxy S 11 series in February 2020. The information comes from industry sources. It is said that Samsung is in talks with the three major Korean carriers for an early release on home grounds.

Samsung's clamshell folding smartphone - its second in the Galaxy Fold range - is rumoured to be getting a release date before the Galaxy S11. 

The latest report claims that the second Fold will share an unveiling with the Galaxy S11 series, but will be made immediately available after announcement in Korea. 

We're hesitant to call this phone the Galaxy Fold 2, primarily because its form factor is so different to the first Galaxy Fold. 

The phone rumoured is said to fold like a clamshell, or flip phone, just like the Moto RAZR, rather than fold across the vertical axis like the current Galaxy Fold.

Samsung ’ s Galaxy Fold has the dubious honor of being the first folding phone most of our readers could actually buy — but it won’t be the last. Now, images are floating around Chinese social media of a phone that looks like it could very well be Samsung ’ s next Galaxy Fold clamshell — and you can

Unlike Samsung ’ s first foldable — the Galaxy Fold — next year’s vertical clamshell foldable shouldn’t break the bank. The Korean tech company also seems to be planning a global release of the Galaxy Fold by then. Samsung will likely launch the Galaxy Fold in approximately 60 more

Currently, it's expected that Samsung will announce its next lot of smartphones at an event in San Francisco on either 11 February or 18 February, with the latest suggestion being that the former is the most likely date. 

As for this second Galaxy Fold, known by its model number as SM-F700, it's rumoured that it'll come in a lot cheaper than the first Galaxy Fold, possibly similar in pricing to the aforementioned RAZR. 

The report on its February release comes from Yonhap News Agency, which also states that Samsung aims to sell six million folding smartphones in 2020, which does suggest pricing will need to come down from the near £2,000 price point of its existing device. 

One way to keep this price down is using mid-range specifications and hardware. It's been rumoured it'll only be available as a 4G device (not 5G), and that it'll only have a dual camera on the back, rather than an advanced four or five camera system. 

The U.S. Space Force Is Not a Joke

  The U.S. Space Force Is Not a Joke It’s not all President Trump promised, but it exists now.Between the holiday season and more pressing military news, the creation of the Space Force did not initially make a big impression. But the president seems pleased with his newest armed service. “Everybody’s excited about that,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Ohio last week. The crowd responded with boisterous chants of “U-S-A.” Vice President Mike Pence celebrated “America’s heritage as the world’s greatest spacefaring nation” yesterday, as he swore in General Jay Raymond as chief of space operations.

The Samsung Galaxy ‘ Fold 2’ (as much of the mainstream media have been calling its forthcoming clamshell foldable ) isn’t a sequel to the Galaxy Fold . It is , however, Samsung ' s second foldable smartphone and will take on a similar appearance to the Motorola Razr foldable clamshell reboot.

The first generation of the Galaxy Fold has only been available since late September, but that hasn't stopped leaks for the next-gen We woke up this morning to find five low-res images, first shared by a Weibo user, of what's being called the Galaxy Fold 2, Samsung ' s purported clamshell folding device.

Arguably the most important thing will be ensuring it doesn't face the issues the first series launched with. 

If Samsung can ensure the display is durable and isn't easily tampered with due to the folding hinge design, it'll be a much smoother launch than the Galaxy Fold in 2019 which ended up being delayed for around six months. 

As always, we'll keep an eye on developments as they occur.
