Lego mocked Samsung and Huawei's foldable phones with the 'Lego Fold'

Eespecially when it so clearly rips the shit out of Samsung's marketing around the Galaxy Fold.

Bloomberg reports that the company is developing a clamshell-like device that folds inwards vertically, and another that folds outwards a-la the Huawei Mate X.

Samsung unveiled its folding phone, the Galaxy Fold, at a dedicated event earlier in February. Samsung Display is already a provider of OLED screens for the iPhone, and the company's flexible OLED technology is probably the most advanced on the planet.

While these two new foldable phone designs are way out in the future, Samsung is now hard at work on fixing one important flaw in the Galaxy Fold, a almost $2,000 phone that is expected to launch on April 26th, 2019.

A spokeswoman for Suwon, South Korea-based Samsung declined to comment on plans for new foldable phones.

While Samsung works on new models, it's also trying to improve the durability of the Galaxy Fold's display.

Of course, the LEGO Fold also offers a battery that "never runs out", a witty play on practically all mobile gadgets out there.

The more intriguing note is another unsourced statement that Samsung is considering offering free screen replacements to account for a visible crease that appears on the Fold after it has been adjusted more than 10,000 times.

Foldable phones. Foldable phones. Having shown what it can do with a foldable display, it's only a matter of time before Samsung rolls out additional devices with further improvements.

There's no denying Samsung knows how to create a smartphone display. Both of these specs just beat out the Samsung's foldable, which comes in a 4.6-inches and 7.3-inches, respectively. Oof.

Samsung is expected to have moved 180,000 units of the Galaxy S10 on the first stay through its online stores as well those of local telcos SK Telecom, KT, and LG Uplus.
