Finally, a Samsung foldable…tablet?

Were still hearing about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, but another rumor suggests theres a new Samsung foldable on the horizon: a triple-folding tablet, which could come out as soon as next year.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Tab, as the device is allegedly called, supposedly has two hinges and three folding segments, like some of the concepts weve seen like TCL
s z-shaped model. Samsungs supposed model is specifically referred to as a tablet, so its unclear if this is a device that folds up small enough to fit a phone form factor and would have the mobile connectivity to work like a handset.
The info was first reported by GizmoChina

, who didnt provide too many other details about the Samsung Z Fold Tab except that it will have better ultra-thin glass (UTG) than the current generation displays on the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold 2. We could see this UTG first on the Z Fold 3 before the Z Fold Tab. Likewise, the folding tablet will allegedly support a Bluetooth-enabled version of the S Pen stylus that will arrive first with the Z Fold 3.
Samsung’s first Tri-Fold, the Galaxy Z Tab is scheduled for Q1 22′ release and you can read about more surrounding about that product here.#GalaxyZTabhttps://t.co/463aimzJazApril 15, 2021
Per Yogesh, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Tab could be teased at the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and/or Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 launch event alleged to be in August 2021 before finally being released in Q1 2022. 
As always, take this leak with a grain of salt, especially with a relatively unknown tipster and a product we havent heard about yet.
But flexible display devices are certainly a niche that phonemakers are continuing to invest in, including Samsung, which released the first multi-market mainstream foldable with the original Samsung Galaxy Fold and seems like it will announce the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 soon given we’re hearing so much about it (it may be called the Z Fold 3 over the
over the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, it won’t have an S Pen slot, and so on). 
And with rollables expected to hit the mainstream phone market in the next year or two, according
to TCL, new devices in unique form factors like the TCL Fold ‘n Roll
will keep coming out. In that light, a large multi-hinged foldable tablet like the Samsung Z Fold Tab is alleged to be doesnt seem too far-fetched.
