In 2020, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 felt like the future

In a year nobody could've predicted, where each day seemed hell-bent on eclipsing the former with fresh horror, surprise, or both, it's been tough to stand out as a category-defining gadget. The fact that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 managed to not only justify its existence as a $1,999 phone, but lay the groundwork for a whole new genre of foldable devices, is a testament to just how much Samsung got right in 2020. Despite what turned out to be largely self-imposed hurdles.

One of the concepts associated with a phone that can unfold like a notebook is the ability to use it almost like a notebook, including the ability to write on it with a stylus. Due to the limitations of early flexible screens, that wasn't exactly possible or even advisable. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is rumored to be the first of its kind to be strong enough to use a stylus on. Everything, however, has a price and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be paying for it more than just literally.

Even Samsung is dropping hints the Galaxy S21 will eat its dying Note

Samsung may not be ready to officially retire the Galaxy Note quite yet, but the writing is on the wall for the original phablet as the company's mobile chief confirms it'll be sharing its so-far-unique features with other phones in 2021.

Samsung expected to launch four foldables next year

If it wasn't yet clear that Samsung is all-in on foldables, this news about its 2021 plans for the product line might dispel those doubts. That is, of course, if reports that Samsung has no less than four foldable phones planned next year is right on the mark.

At least based on a recent report, Samsung plans on launching no less than three foldable phones for the first time (two variants of the Galaxy Z Flip don't count separately). It isn't all good news, however, as it seems that Samsung has decided to take a step back and reduce the size of the Galaxy Z Fold 3's external screen, probably to offset the costs of its main feature.
