Foldable Phones Are Coming…
Rumors of folding smartphones, and the technology they rely on, have swirled the tech industry blogosphere for several years now. But recently, the fruits of that development are just starting to be seen. The foldable smartphones are coming.
Several manufacturers across the smartphone industry have announced that they are working on handsets with folding displays. And at least one OEM has actually debuted a folding smartphone. In other words, expect foldable handsets to be the buzz at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
It’s not just manufacturers that are delving into the new technology, either. Last year, Google hinted that it was working on baking support for “foldables” into Android. While there’s no word on a timeline just yet, Android will be at the forefront of the first wave of foldable smartphones.
