A smartphone screen foldable, for what?

there It is. They are coming from. Smartphones screens are foldable are at our doors! But for what? Samsung has made the buzz with his device presented at a conference developer. The main interest of this small jewel of technology: having a screen that changed from 4.6 inches to 7.2 inches, leaflet. And apart from that? Not much... Spent the next wow of the technological performance (a screen foldable, no hinges visible, it is still very very strong), the smartphone folded is roughly twice as thick as a traditional telephone. With two times more screen to power, it must also have a battery that takes the shock, which increases mechanically the overall. Not to mention a selling price expected of around 1.200 euros.

not wanting to leave Samsung alone in the spotlight with his on-screen foldable, Huawei is expected to unveil his 24 February, on the eve of the opening of the doors of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. The smartphone should be foldable and compatible 5G. Another characteristic has only one interest minor at the present time, since the first networks 5G will be open to the marketing at the better end of 2019, more likely 2020 for France.

Screens flexible

The true revolution could come from screens really flexible. LG has already made the buzz with his tv that rolls up into the base, only to disappear, leaving to imagine that a smartphone rolling could one day see the light of day. The ideal being that it can be rolled up for not being thicker than a pen... But it seems that the technologies to achieve this are not yet fully developed. In the meantime, it will no doubt be satisfied with screens slightly flexible. LG has already made a first attempt with his G Flex, without encountering a huge commercial success. Xiaomi could launch in turn. The main advantage of a screen slightly flexible is that when someone sits on it, if it is in a back pocket for example, the flexible screen breaks easily... Not sure that this argument justifies the expense!!
