Samsung's Budget Galaxy Z Fold S Rumored With Flexible OLED And 360-Degree Hinge
Back in August, we reported on a possible budget line of folding phones from Samsung, but now it seems some new rumors are afoot. Twitter user @folduniverse dug into the rumors of this new folding phone from Samsung in his tweet below.
The first thing of note is the 360-degree hinge with “outfold” and “infold,” like the Surface Duo. Also, like the Duo, the screens must fold inward so you can safely put the device in your pocket. The rumor is that a glass covering outside the device will give it a premium feel. The Surface Duo will also have a glass exterior for protection and premium feel. So far, the device seems close to a 1:1 match-up with the Surface Duo.
Samsung rumored to have a 3rd foldable family member next year, tentatively known as Z Fold S.— Fold Universe (@folduniverse) September 5, 2020
It has got 360° hinge that enables outfold and infold and works similarly like the Surface Duo.

It is speculated that these devices will be launching around the same time frame, so Microsoft and Samsung will likely be going head to head on who can make a better device. Will it be Samsung who has had issues with folding devices in the past, or Microsoft who will enter the arena with limited experience and others' knowledge? Hopefully, we will get to take a look at these devices in 2021, so you can decide which is the better folding phone.
