After Galaxy Fold, Samsung teases flexible flip phone



California: The Galaxy Fold went on sale a month ago, but it appears that Samsung has another foldable phone in the works. The company on Tuesday teased a clamshell-style foldable phone during the first day of its annual Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) in San Jose, California.

In a teaser video uploaded on YouTube, Samsung showcased an un-named concept phone that could be a sequel to the Galaxy Fold. Instead of a phone that transforms into a square-shaped tablet, this device reminds of an old-school flip phone with a clamshell design. Interestingly, Motorola is also working on a similar-looking clamshell foldable phone. The phone will be launched at an event in Los Angeles on November 16.

It’s unclear if this new design adopts an external display like the current model, but if it was to fully mimic the flip phones of old, we’d expect to see a small screen on its exterior. If rumours are on the money, the second-gen Fold could sport a teeny 1in secondary display.

Though it looks like a major improvement over Samsung’s current clumsy, bork-prone Galaxy Fold, it’s unclear if the slap-to-shut device will make it to market; the firm said it was merely “exploring” the concept as part of its overall work on foldable devices.

It won’t be the first to market if it does launch, though. Motorola is expected to take the wraps off its reworked Razr, which will be the world’s first foldable clamshell, on 13 November.


Yogi meets filmmakers, invites them to UP




Several filmmakers on Tuesday met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath through video conferencing to discuss the film city project.

The Chief Minister shared a presentation with the guests and assured filmmakers of all help in film making in the state. He said that the proposed film city would be spread over 1,000 acres of land.

He said that Uttar Pradesh was the heart and hub of India — be it the Freedom Struggle movement, culture or mythology.

“We have Ayodhya, Kashi and Mathura. There is Hastinapur which is related to Mahabharat. There is history and there is culture here,” he added.

The Chief Minister spoke about the state’s connectivity and said that the Jewar international airport project was underway and many new airports were on the anvil.

The Chief Minister also spoke about the Kumbh Mela organised by his government last year and said that the event had been appreciated worldwide.

Among those who attended the meeting included actor Paresh Rawal, Anupam Kher, singers Anup Jalota, Udit Narain and Kailash Kher, lyricist Manoj Muntashir, filmmakers Satish Kaushik, Subhash Ghai, David Dhawan, Priyadarshan, Saundarya Rajnikanth, Raveena Tandon and Raju Srivastava, among others.
