Foldable smartphones are a new segment of technology that is growing with great acceptance by a public with more financial capacity. Just yesterday we saw Huawei coming to the market with yet another solution, but Samsung has been the company that stands out the most.
Now, their knowledge and all the technology developed around the folding screens can be used by other companies, such as Google, OPPO and Xiaomi, which have already shown their intention to launch their own folding smartphones.
Samsung is today the most relevant manufacturer associated with smartphones with foldable screens. There is no doubt that this South Korean company has the best quality screens and the best developed models.
However, competition exists mainly between Motorola and Huawei. Soon, we will see more companies entering this market. Xiaomi and OPPO are two good examples that have already come out to the public to talk about these claims, as well as Google, which should also have its foldable Pixel.
Samsung alongside companies in the production of foldable OLED screens
Korean website The Elect has now advanced with the information that Samsung Display is making a folding screen for Google. In this information, one advances with a screen of 7.6 ″, in fact, the same size as the Galaxy Z Fold2.
In addition to Google, Xiaomi and OPPO are also mentioned in this news. OPPO, which has its smartphone with a sliding screen closer and closer to reaching the market, will also have ordered a screen that folds into a shell from Samsung, that is, more in the format of the Galaxy Z Flip. This cupped screen will be 7.7 inches and will not be alone. For the outside of what could be an OPPO Flip, the company also ordered a small 1.5 to 2 inch screen.
In the case of Xiaomi, supposedly, its foldable has already been seen to be used in public (image above). Samsung should then be manufacturing an 8.03 ″ OLED screen with the ability to fold. In addition, the external screen, 6.38 ″, should also be in charge.
Foldable smartphones from Google, OPPO and Xiaomi arrive this year?
Apparently, according to the same source, these three smartphones will be launched by the respective brands later this year. In addition to Google, OPPO and Xiaomi, Vivo will also be able to enter this race. Thus, 2021 could be an important year for this new segment of mobile technology.
Apple is also expected to be working on its foldable, shell-shaped iPhone, however, the brand is not expected to rush and only in 2020 should we see something coming under the apple brand.
For now, the first boldest major launch should be OPPO’s sliding screen.
