Nobody is talking about how many Galaxy Fold models Samsung or Huawei or Motorola are selling these days, probably because anything not in the millions would be embarrassing. Still, Samsung and others carry on and the next Galaxy Fold might even have a hinge and crease you cannot see.
Andy Meek explains:
On the original Fold, there’s a definite, noticeable vertical line you can see where the phone folds in half. Samsung, meanwhile, has trademarked something it’s calling a “Hideaway Hinge,” a new kind of hinge hidden in the housing of the device that will thus be hardly visible at all.
Patented? Names and brands are important, but nothing new.
Because the hinge is so integral to the experience of a foldable phone like this, it’s also not surprising for it to be given an actual moniker.
What name will Apple give to the first folding iPhone?
