Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Tab rumored to launch in early 2022 as tri-fold tablet
Samsung entered the foldable smartphone market two years ago with the original Galaxy Fold. It expanded on that with the compact Galaxy Z Flip in early 2020, and next the South Korean brand could enter the foldable tablet segment.
Samsung's tri-fold tablet could debut in early 2022
A new rumor from GizmoChina claims that Samsung is working on an advanced tri-fold tablet for release in the first quarter of 2022, suggesting it could be announced alongside the flagship Galaxy S22.
The device will apparently be marketed as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Tab to customers and feature better UTG (Ultra-thin Glass) than existing foldables, which in turn will make the planned S Pen support possible.
Months before the announcement happens, Samsung might tease its first foldable tablet at this summer’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 event. Today’s rumor says this is something Samsung’s marketing team is actively discussing.
We don’t know much else about the Galaxy Z Fold Tab at this stage, but patent-based renders dated October 2020 could potentially provide a preview of the device.
The product envisioned above and below boasts that’s pretty similar to that of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, only this time the large display can be folded in two places rather than one. A slide-out keyboard is seen too, although that seems like an unlikely feature for the final product.
