Guys till now we have seen foldable smartphones from only Samsung. But the other smartphone authorities are trying to go on a race with Samsung by unveiling fold devices.
Yeah, there are Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, and Google in this race. They claimed to appear with fold devices in 2021. It will happen expected in the second half of 2021. That’s on top of Samsung’s expected Galaxy Z Fold3, Z Flip2, and Z Flip Lite. On that point, Young insists that the much-rumored Fold3 Lite won’t happen, instead the ‘affordable foldable’ will be of the Flip variety. We’ll have to wait and see.
Going back to the other companies, it’s perhaps no surprise that the Chinese players are in the game, but Google will launch one foldable Pixel too. Between the three of them, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi will out a total of four foldable devices.
While Young uses the phrase “foldable smartphones”, we have to wonder whether this list may also include a rollable model, akin to the Oppo X 2021 concept. Or better put, we’re daydreaming about that possibility over here. Perhaps in a year, the technology will be mature enough to be put through mass production. We can only hope.
