According to Display Search’s Ross Young, 2021, a great source of information on smartphone screen technology in recent months, will be a great year for foldable products. Specifically, the second half of next year.
At that time, Young says you’ll see such devices launched by Oppo, vivo, Xiaomi, and Google. It’s on top of Samsung’s expectations for the Galaxy Z Fold3, Z Flip2, and Z Flip Lite. In that regard, Young argues that many rumored Fold3 Lite does not occur, and instead “affordable folds” are the type of Flip. You have to wait.
Going back to other companies, it’s probably not surprising that Chinese players are in the game, but Google will also launch a foldable Pixel. Among those three, Oppo, vivo, and Xiaomi put out a total of four foldable devices.
Young uses the phrase “foldable smartphone,” but you should wonder if this list also includes rollable models that resemble the Oppo X2021 concept. In other words, we are fantasizing about that possibility here. Perhaps within a year, the technology will mature enough to be mass-produced. We can only do what we want.
