A few days back Samsung gave a new report that it will soon launch the new galaxy foldable phone but rumours conduct a great job in the market. Rumours of a foldable phone have circulated for years, but someone might finally, maybe release one in the next year. huawei has its new phone which might try to beat it to market. If 2018 was the year of the notch, maybe 2019 will be the year of the fold.
Every phone now in a market almost have OLED display which makes the screen flexible. Therefore, they have said that the OLED panels are manufactured on a flexible substrate, which is why there have been so many demos of flexible screens at trade shows for the better part of a decade. If we say about another brand LG, it has even released a few G Flex phones that could bend a little bit without breaking. It is even more possible to make a display flexible for ages, but turning that into a foldable phone is another story. Phones with OLED panels aren’t flexible or foldable because the panel is under glass.
The one-handed operations, a foldable phone could allow for convenient for it but you could unfurl the full display when playing a game or watching a video. OLED screens have a special feature that it can fold but they don’t take kindly to that treatment long-term — manufacturing changes are needed before a foldable phone makes sense. When it is excessively folded then the current panels will develop creases and dead zones very quickly. If we say about Samsung’s smartphones-size therefore OLED panels in the world, so you’d expect its phone to be the first with a robust foldable panel. According to the new report, Huawei will partner with Chinese supplier BOE for a new flexible OLED panel.
Near the manufacturing capacity of Samsung BOE, doesn’t have anywhere, therefore, Huawei ability to produce foldable phones would be extremely limited. When the first run of devices could be as low as 20,000-30,000. The device wouldn’t be heavily marketed, but Huawei expects early adopters to scoop up the first foldable phone. The Huawei’s industrial design leadership then the new unnamed smartphone would mainly serve as proofs like the company wants to show off.
The launch date was also launched for the new Huawei foldable phones, it will nearly launch in early 2019. Samsung’s foldable phone has been rumored for a mid-2019 launch, and the price tag could go as high as $2,000. Huawei working with another Chinese company could keep the price lower, but it’s no stranger to expensive phones, either. The Porsche Design editions of its flagship phones can sell for $1,200 or more.
