Rumour has it the Galaxy Note line might go away

With the differences between the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S lines diminishing, Samsung might be doing more harm to its flagship smartphone segment. A new rumour from tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) suggests that Samsung might be thinking about this problem and the company might unite the two under the Galaxy One brand. And the one reportedly getting axed is the more innovative Note brand. Instead of releasing two flagships at the start and latter part of the year, the company might focus on the S series. This flagship will launch at the beginning of the year with phones that also carry the S Pen.

As for the gap in the fall, Samsung is said to be considering filling this in with the Galaxy Fold. As MSPowerUser points out, the Note line did start as Samsung's more experimental line. It makes sense that Samsung's most out-there product right now takes its place. But according to this is still reliant on a few factors. He tweets, "Assuming that Fold performs according to expectations—both functionally and in the market—the hope is to deploy its successors as a second-half flagship, in the spot that would be vacated by Note. This was described as still being very fluid and tentative at this stage." For now, these are all rumours, and we still have the Note line. But we're keeping our eyes out for any changes to suggest otherwise.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be relaunched in September

After delaying the phone for 89 days, Samsung is finally ready to announce a new release window for the Galaxy Fold. It’ll be coming out in September. The company hasn’t given a specific date yet. And as initially planned, it’ll only be available in select countries. Samsung will be releasing specific sale dates as the month approaches.

The company took the time to fix issues with the Galaxy Fold to avoid the troubles it encountered. These include extending the protective top layer beyond the bezel, adding “reinforcements to stop debris from getting under the screen, and new “protection caps” to strengthen the top and bottom parts of the hinge. There are natural gaps there where particles could get in. Samsung also added metal reinforcements beneath the screen, presumably to make the plastic screen stiffer. There’s also less of an air gap between the Fold’s body and its hinge.

Samsung reportedly fixes issues with the Galaxy Fold’s screen

Embed from Getty Images

The wait for Samsung’s Galaxy Fold might soon be over. According to a report from Bloomberg, the company has supposedly fixed the issues plaguing the company’s first foldable device. According to people familiar with the matter, the phone is now in the final stages of producing the commercial version. The company has wrapped the protective film around the entire display and into the outer bezels of the device, which should prevent people from peeling the film off and rendering the device useless. Some reviewers of the Galaxy Fold learned the hard way that the film wasn’t supposed to be peeled off. Samsung has reportedly pushed the hinge slightly upward to have it flushed against the display. This should stretch the film further when the display is opened.

We’re not sure if Samsung addressed the other issues that journalists ran into with the Galaxy Fold. But we’re assuming that it has. This means it’ll be ready ahead of the holiday season. However, it seems the device won’t be ready by the August 7th event for the Galaxy Note 10.

The S Pen might be coming to the next-gen Galaxy Fold

We’re not exactly counting on this rumour to be true, but the Korean media is buzzing with claims about Samsung’s next Galaxy Fold. Yes, the next one, even if the first one hasn’t even left Samsung’s gates. But we want to indulge the idea a bit and think about what Samsung might bring to the next-gen Galaxy Fold. Rumour has it the Galaxy Fold 2 will get a screen size upgrade, going from 7.3 inches to 8 inches, placing it in Samsung’s tablet territory (close to its own Galaxy Tab A, in fact).

On top of that, Samsung is reportedly toying with the idea of adding support for the S Pen stylus. As SlashGear points out, this raises an important question. For the Galaxy Fold to support the S Pen, it’ll need a Wacom digitizer, which doesn’t exist for foldable surfaces just yet. There have been Chinese digitizers that have been used on flexible drawing tablets, but we don’t think Samsung might head down that route. Or could they? Is there even a point to working on a second-generation one when the first-gen hasn’t even made its way to the public yet?
