Flexibility and Storage
Another reason to consider foldable phones and tablets are storage options. As our screens keep getting bigger, storing them gets more difficult, especially if you want to avoid any accidental damage. Foldable devices help fix that problem by being, well, foldable. It’s easier to tuck them away in a purse or pocket at a moment’s notice.
Some, like the Lenovo-owned Motorola patent indicates, may also be flip phones, a way to handily resurrect the old idea of a flip phone with the modern convenience of a smartphone touchscreen – which sounds like one of the more promising uses of foldable screens, although there’s no guarantee it will even hit the market. However, Apple also has reason to look into this advantage, since today’s iPads aren’t exactly easy to slip away without dedicated storage space in a bag or briefcase.
