On the other hand, there is no clear sign when this kind of mobile will be available to the public. But, we are seeing a competitive race between the top 3 manufacturers who want to make foldable phones, i.e. Samsung, Apple, and Huawei.
Huawei is becoming the direct competitor of Samsung and Apple as it is the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Huawei’s products range lie between the mid and the high-range smartphone making enough to compete with industry leaders.
Even though Huawei’s patent give the impression like the prospect is near, but the design is just on paper. As, there is no news of a physical prototype has been received yet.
On the other hand, experts forecast a very low stability rate of such foldable displays may prove as a massive obstacle in the path of Huawei.
In other news, Samsung has not set and confirmed anything about the Galaxy X, whose patent was filed at the closing stages of last year. The Galaxy X was also supposed to have a foldable design.
Well, right now there is nothing happening like this. So, we have to wait for that time and have to make do with straight, simple phones till then.
