Samsung working on fourth foldable phone codenamed ‘Diamond’

Galaxy Club reports that the three foldables from Samsung are codenamed B4, Q4, and N4. The first two are the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4 whereas the N4 is an unnamed device. Tipster Ice Universe claims that N4 is codenamed ‘Diamond’. The report also adds that the new foldable offering will be available in limited quantities. 

Additionally, in a separate tweet, Ice Universe has shared an image of Samsung executives with the upcoming unnamed foldable smartphone. It is seen with a unique form factor and devoid of any hinges found on the third-generation Galaxy Z Flip and Fold. It’s likely that the device could be a rollable or slideable phone with extending display much like the OPPO X 2021. The tipster adds that there’s a high probability of it being a scroll screen phone. 

In the past, Samsung has filed multiple patents for the new foldable phone design. This also hints at the company’s plans to introduce a third foldable smartphone in the market and with a new design compared to the Z Flip and Z Fold.
