Foldable Smartphones Could Come From Apple And Samsung In The Future
Flip phones may sound like a thing of the past. However, it's undeniable how much of a great thing that technology was. With that said, there is a good chance that current smartphone leaders will once again embrace that old-school technology in the modern times. It's worth noting though that Samsung isn't at all a stranger to modern flip phones as the company actually releases some in certain markets. Releasing a premium flip phone for the rest of the world on the other hand, is what is being rumored right now. Both tech giants Apple and Samsung are rumored to embrace that technology in the foreseeable future.
Samsung To Introduce Premium Foldable Phones
Rumors suggest that Samsung is now in the works for a foldable smartphone. Phone Arena says that this unit can go from being a phone to being a tablet by means of special hinges. It was said that this phone could appear this coming CES or MWC event. Take note that the rumor suggests a tablet-to-phone gadget instead of the regular flip smartphone. This pretty much is a big deal if it does get materialized.
Apple Receives Foldable Display Patent For Smartphones
A recent patent has been granted to Apple for flexible display devices. This supposed device is still a patent and is overall as vague as it can get, but people expect it to be used on future iPhones. As per CNET, the proposed design features a foldable device that highly resembles the traditional flip phones.
Current Flip Phones 2016
It's worth mentioning that Samsung's W2016 device is a high-powered flip smartphone. However, this unit isn't released in a large number of markets. In fact, this phone has just been made official in China last November. It was said that this phone is equipped with great specs like 3 GB RAM, 16 MP/5 MP cameras, Exynos 7420 SoC and 4G support. Needless to say, creating a flip smartphone is a very possible thing, as presented by Samsung. It looks like these companies are just waiting for the right time and the right marketing strategies before they make this technology once again mainstream.
