Samsung has already teased a foldable smartphone that will use the classic clamshell design we used to have in the 2000s. Samsung has been developing the smartphone and it now appears that the smartphone actually exists and should be launching soon.
The company reportedly discussed and revealed the device in secret at CES this week and from the leaked picture we also got to know the name of the smartphone. It was revealed that the folding clamshell smartphone will be called “Galaxy Bloom” and here’s the picture below that got leaked via AjuNews.com:
According to the report, Samsung CEO DJ Koh explained that the Galaxy Bloom takes inspiration from cosmetic products. The design of the Galaxy Bloom is said to be inspired by clamshell-style powder compact cases. The smartphone has leaked previously via a renowned Samsung leaker on Twitter and we can be almost certain it will look something like the image below:
Currently, the only information we have is the leaked picture from CES and concept images that were revealed by Samsung a few months ago. The clamshell design is already being used by Motorola Razr for its folding smartphone and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Samsung to use the clamshell design for their smartphones as well.
It is not entirely certain when Samsung will launch the Galaxy Bloom, however if we go by the Galaxy Fold’s launch, we can expect it to launch alongside the new Galaxy S series smartphones. The company is going to hold its Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event on February 11th. Alongside smartphones, Samsung is also expected to launch a new version of the Galaxy Buds that will rival the AirPods Pro.
