Five Ways Foldable Phones Could Change The Game

Five Ways Foldable Phones Could Change The Game

A folding smartphone concept from Lenovo in a person's hand.

Five Ways Foldable Phones Could Change The Game,Foldable phones have been around the corner for years: we’ve seen patents, prototypes, manufacturing and rumors. Heck, Samsung’s mobile chief has even talked openly about the company’s progress with foldable displays.
The flexible phone chatter of the last few months has had a different feel, though. It looks like 2019 could be the year the floodgates open.
TE has already launched one product in the “folding” category: 2017’s ZTE Axon M. Unlike that device, which has two separate displays and folds in the middle, the new breed of phones is expected to set the world alight with single, flexible screens.

New ways to interact

For the past few years, manufacturers made smartphones better, with more RAM, nicer cameras, and faster processors in each new iteration. Barring some minor exceptions like the fingerprint scanner (which I’m told will, one day, be the way to pay for stuff at the store), nothing has changed what a phone does, just how well it can do it.

Cameras will become much better

Smartphone cameras are the most important feature of the phone for many, and manufacturers are under pressure to deliver great experiences on the front and rear of their phones.

No more cracked screens

Okay, folding screens may not rule out cracked screens for good, but they are set to make them far less likely. As folding displays must be flexible by nature, they should be far less likely to shatter in an accidental trip to the floor.
