The Galaxy Z Flip 2, Samsung’s next foldable flip smartphone, would be equipped with a triple photo sensor on the back.
Several months before the launch of the smartphone, the South Korean manufacturer has indeed filed two patents showing the design of the device.
In addition to the triple module, there is also a more spacious secondary screen on some diagrams.
In January 2020, Samsung filed two patents with the World Intellectual Property Organization, our colleagues at LetsGoDigital report.
The South Korean firm is visibly hesitating between two designs for its next Galaxy Z Flip, its second clamshell smartphone.
Samsung Is Working On 2 Designs For Its Galaxy Z Flip 2
Based on the drawings accompanying the patents, LetsGoDigital has developed a 3D rendering showing the designs envisaged by Samsung.
In the first case, the clamshell smartphone features a triple horizontal photo sensor, in line with the double sensor of the first Z Flip.
This configuration unfortunately forces the manufacturer to reduce the size of the secondary screen dedicated to notifications.
For our part, it’s hard to imagine Samsung trimming the already small secondary screen of its first Galaxy Z Flip.
The second design also shows a larger pop-up screen. To enlarge the size of the OLED panel, Samsung plans to place the triple photo sensor vertically.
As the rendering of LetsGoDigital shows, this configuration allows to display more elements during a call or a message.
At the moment, it is not known which design Samsung intends to go for. However, the Galaxy Z Flip 2 is not expected before February 2021.
We’ll tell you more as soon as we can about Samsung’s next Flip. While waiting for more information, we invite you to give your opinion on the Z Flip in the comments below.
