Samsung will allegedly unveil a new foldable smartphone with a dual-edge display during the Mobile World Congress 2019. We already know that the company is going to unveil the Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone during the Unfold event scheduled on February 20 wherein the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup of smartphones will also be launched.
This foldable smartphone, however, appears to be an altogether different device.

On 12 February 2019, USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) published a new patent from Samsung Electronics. The design patent entitled ‘Electronic device’ shows a folding smartphone that consists of two separate display parts, similar to the ZTE Axon M launched last year.
The device has a modern design with narrow screen edges and an edge display, making the smartphone look particularly stylish when it is folded. In the most compact form, you have a fairly narrow, elongated smartphone at your disposal.
If you want to take the smartphone with you, you can fold the device so that the display is on the inside, this way the screen remains optimally protected against scratches and bumps. You can also fold the phone all the way back, so you have one display at your disposal, with the same format as that of a current smartphone.
The front seems to offer space for a single selfie camera. The backside houses a double camera that is positioned vertically from each other. In addition, the Samsung foldable smartphone on the bottom has a 3.5 mm connection.
Would the device that we see on February 20, 2019 look like this? We will have to wait for another week, but given the scattered teaser material, we would not be surprised if Samsung introduces a smartphone on MWC 2019 that consists of two display parts, instead of one large flexible display such as Samsung demonstrated last year during the Samsung Developer Conference.
