Samsung teased a clamshell foldable phone design at its developer conference several months ago, something like Motorola Razr has already adopted for the foldable phone. Now, it seems like real-world images of this device may have leaked online. The leak comes via a Weibo user (h/t: Ice Universe), and shows a clamshell foldable phone with a tall screen. The picture shows a center-placed punch-hole cutout on the screen, a dual rear camera setup, and a tiny display on the outside. Other important details include the various Samsung app icons, a Microsoft folder, and a USB-C port. On the bottom, the speaker is being placed.
The images, which were posted on Weibo earlier today, show a vertically-folding display panel with a centered hole-punch cutout similar to the Galaxy Note 10 and the upcoming Galaxy S11. Samsung has also introduced an Active Edge panel that can be seen here. However, the

The hinge mechanism, on the other hand, looks to be quite similar to the Galaxy Fold. Some recent rumors have suggested the clamshell foldable phone, which could be called the Galaxy Fold 2, will be priced under $1,000. It is also expected to have the same 108MP primary camera and 5x telephoto zoom lens as the Galaxy S11. Even though Samsung hasn’t confirmed specific launch date yet, some reports suggest the Galaxy Fold 2 will debut on February 18, alongside the Galaxy S11 series.
