The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the first smartphone with a foldable display from the Korean tech giant. As such, in terms of accessories, we can’t say we’re surprised that there aren’t that many options around. However, with the next-gen Galaxy Fold, Samsung will apparently have some premium accessories made for the phone.
This is according to a report from SamMobile who claims that the company will be offering leather covers for the next-gen Galaxy Fold handset. For those who haven’t been following the rumors, Samsung will apparently debut a new Galaxy Fold smartphone in 2020. This phone, which we’re still not sure if it will be the true successor to 2019’s model, will come in a clamshell design.
This is said to be similar to the Motorola Razr smartphone where it will open up like a clamshell phone from back in the day. This is versus the current Galaxy Fold that opens from a smartphone to a tablet and back again. With this particular model, it will basically be a phone that can make itself smaller when folded.
SamMobile reports that the leather cover options include white, black, and purple and will actually be rather pricey at $129.99 each. It will be also be made out of Italian leather. Take it with a grain of salt, but hopefully we’ll have more details soon.
