Samsung has confirmed that they will be hosting the Samsung Developer Conference next month in which many expect that the company will be showing off its much talked about foldable smartphone. However based on a report from Bloomberg, it seems that Samsung could still be working on it.

The report claims that Samsung has two prototype designs which they have yet to decide on. One of those designs is longer horizontally when unfolded, while the other is longer vertically when unfolded. Apparently Samsung’s designers are leaning more towards the latter design as apparently it makes it easier to hold with one hand, despite it feeling more narrow when it has been opened.

We’re not sure if a final design can be decided in time for the event, but all of this suggests that whatever see at the SDC might not necessarily be the final one, and that maybe Samsung could merely be showing off what they’ve got so far and share the concepts behind its design and its intended purpose.

Some other details revealed in Bloomberg’s report adds that the phone will not have a fingerprint sensor due to its flexible screen. It is also said that it might have a smaller battery because the phone itself weighs more than 200 grams, so a lighter and smaller battery might be required if they don’t want to make the phone too heavy. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but check back with us on the 7th and 8th of November for the details if there are any to be had.
