You may have seen foldable devices in the news recently. Many foldable phones released recently such as the Royole Flexpai, Huawei foldable phone, and Samsung galaxy fold. But what about a foldable iPhone?
A fold-able device is one that can fold out to make a larger screen. The fold-able screens are currently available in smartphones that fold into a smaller size than today’s standards of smartphones.
Foldable screen technology is relatively new and you can fold able phones in half or fold to a smaller size.
The foldable screen includes glass, batteries, and processors that are integrated into the foldable display.
Samsung has been reportedly getting orders for fold-able smartphone screens from Apple before they have released their fold-able smartphones on the market which means Apple is likely to release a foldable iPhone in the near future.
How do foldable screens work?
Foldable screens work by using foldable panels with fold lines that fold together into a smaller size. The foldable panels are created from foldable displays, batteries, and processors that are integrated into the foldable display panel. The fold-able display is foldable by bending on either one side or both sides that are perpendicular to each other such as in Royole’s foldable smartphone where there is no top and bottom at the same plane while Huawei’s fold-able phone’s folds are similar to a Zugababe notebook which makes the fold-able experience more natural. Samsung fold-able phones that can fold in half are still being tested and haven’t been released yet.
Huawei’s fold-able phones can fold out to an 8-inch display screen with two 4.5 inch displays on the front of the foldable device which allows users to view videos at a larger size and better viewing experience and it’s called a Z fold concept.
Samsung is testing its fold-able smartphones inside the Samsung Vietnam factory in Bac Ninh province. Samsung’s engineer that is working on the foldable smartphone prototype said it will be ready for mass production next year.
The fold-able phone prototype was seen sporting a 7-inch display but still, images showed how small it can fold into when fully folded up, almost as if it is nonexistent like Royole’s fold-able smartphone that folds out into an 8-inch tablet where you can write or draw onto the fold-able screen. The foldable smartphone prototype will fold out into a tablet and fold back in to make a phone.
