All the Folding Phones So Far
As we mentioned, smartphone OEMs are rushing to announce their own folding smartphone developments. That, notably, includes Samsung, who debuted a prototype folding device last year. Motorola, Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi are also reported to be working on similar devices.
But with the exception of the Royole Flexpai, all of the devices we’ve actually seen haven’t gotten past the prototype stage. And most of them are still being developed. While that could change at MWC next month, it may be better to withhold expectations until we see more.
Other manufacturers could be working on folding smartphones or similar tech — or, at least, they’re rumored to be. That includes LG, Oppo and Sony. Companies working on similar ideas include Intel, which debuted prototype dual-screen devices in October 2018.
