Though the launching of Samsung‘s next-gen folding smartphone is several months away, the rumor mills are already busy with details related to the device. A new report has emerged from Samsung’s home country, suggesting that the device might launch in June 2021. The report further claim that the company is likely to discontinue its Galaxy Note lineup and bring its S Pen stylus to the Galaxy S-series.
The report further claims that Samsung also considered bringing its S Pen support to the Z Fold2, but that plan fell through because it couldn’t develop a working screen protection technology for the flexible panel in time. Now that the company seems to have a new technology that adequately protects the folding screen, the device will finally get S Pen support, possibly making it more lucrative from the productivity standpoint.
The report also seemingly confirms recent rumors that Samsung’s next-gen folding smartphone will ship with an under-display selfie-camera. Rumors to that effect have been doing the rounds for a while, and was seemingly corroborated last week by a leading South Korean news publication. As per the report, the new display panel will come with wider gaps between pixels to allow light to pass through. The company is also apparently working on custom algorithm for image correction to mitigate issues created by refraction through the OLED panel.
