Apple is said to be under pressure to deliver a foldable iPhone that can compete with upcoming devices from the likes of Samsung and Huawei.
Apple “cannot afford to ignore” the foldable phone trend, according to a new report. If the company doesn’t catch up quickly, industry observers warn Cupertino could lose its reputation as being “a leader of innovation.”
When jaws dropped at the $1,980 price of Samsung’s first folding phone, Huawei said “Hold my beer.” The Chinese company just took the wraps of its own flexible handset that will go for a mind-blowing €2,299 (roughly $2,600).
Of course, the Mate X is loadedwith truly cutting-edge features, especially a 6.6-inch screen that opens to 8 inches. There’s also 5G.
If nothing else, these two models should cut down on the criticism of the price of the iPhone XS Max, which looks relatively cheap at a mere $1,099.
Apple picked a design for the iPhone more than a decade ago and has gradually improved it with each successive model. But that‘s all over and done. We have no idea what the 2020 iPhone will look like. Literally no clue
That’s because the era of foldable displays is about to kick off, and they are going to bring profound changes to phones of all types.
Samsung may have accidentally given us an early glimpse at its first foldable phone — weeks before it gets its official unveiling.
A foldable device appears in a one-minute teaser posted and then quickly removed by Samsung Vietnam. But is it really the handset that will be revealed during a big Samsung Unpacked event in San Francisco on February 20?
“What’s the point of a foldable phone?” That’s the question the Cult of Mac team was asking when Samsung confirmed its first is coming this year. But after seeing Xiaomi’s impressive foldable phone prototype, I really, really want one.
Check out the teaser video below and try telling me it doesn’t look awesome.
