The Galaxy Z Flip is only the tip of the fold-berg at Samsung, but it's not consumer-ready yet
The Korea Herald reports that a Samsung executive has asserted the company already has projects for devices that fold at more points than its existing Galaxy Fold and Z Flip products underway. However, the company has yet to manufacture or release them, possibly due to a lack of certainty that they are really what the customer wants, or may be prepared to use.
Roh Tae-moon, the president of this company's mobile division, made comments to this effect at the Galaxy Unpacked event, which took place on February 11, 2020. The OEM's latest foldable was unveiled here; however, it seems it may gain successors that go beyond its relatively simple clamshell action in the future.
However, Tae-moon insisted that, while this hurdle has been cleared at Samsung R&D, the issue of "value to consumers" now remains. This may entail the optimization of One UI to the resulting form-factors, or simply figuring out how to make them most appealing to consumers. Nevertheless, the division head's vision of "large-scale screens" that unfold and fold to whatever size is required may be compelling enough for some buyers.
