Reports from days ago claimed that Samsung was gearing up to release a third foldable that would debut alongside the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 at Unpacked. It appears, however, that those rumors may have been slightly off the mark, with one silver lining being the reveal of the first Galaxy S23 detail.

 A few days ago, word surfaced from multiple quarters indicating that Samsung had concrete plans to launch a third foldable phone this year alongside the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 in August. It appears, however, that those reports may have been a tad too optimistic.

While leaker Ice Universe announced that the supposed slidable would be codenamed "Diamond", that looks to have been wrong. According to supply chain insider Ross Young, "Diamond" is actually the codename for the Galaxy S23 scheduled to launch early next year, not a foldable phone at all. 

Those earlier reports claimed that the third Samsung foldable phone was already scheduled to go into production imminently but Ross Young seems to indicate that the phone isn't on the cards for a release. Not this year, either way. Supposedly, earlier information pointed at the foldable going into production at the end of the year, which would imply a 2023 release, but even those plans appeared to have been shelved. As it stands, it looks unlikely that Samsung releases a third foldable device anytime soon. We'll keep you updated, though.
