Samsung might launch a Tri-Fold device this year, the S23 FE isn’t happening
Another week, another contradictory rumor regarding the death or resurrection of the mythical Samsung Fan Edition range. This time around it’s bad news – apparently the Galaxy S23 FE isn’t happening after all.
It may be sad and all that, but on the other hand, the same source brings us an incredibly intriguing flip side to this rumor. The Korean company is said to be working on a “Tri-Fold” device, and it “could finally be delivered this year”. It’s the new prototypical “tall if true”, since for the past few years we’ve basically had single-hinged foldables.
It promises to be a three-piece, dual-hinged foldable, similar to a few concepts Samsung Display showed at CES in January. There are no more details on this one at the moment, but it’s been a while since a brand new form factor hit the mobile world, so we’re excited. There’s also the fact that this device still involves folding, and that’s basically a fixed issue at this point.
So while the form factor itself may be new, the fact that it is an extension (both literally and figuratively) of an already existing one means that there is here the potential for it to forego all the usual issues that arise when something completely new comes along. the market for the first time – it’s just an extra hinge and a more complex screen to use in this case. New, yes, never done before, yes too, but not completely out of left field.
