What did happen then? We were stunned. Royole Flexpai is a foldable smartphone announced in 2018 that washed away our assumptions about the impossibility of such a project. But this does not end here.
The journey of the foldable phones that started in 2018 seems to continue in 2019 as well. And this time, Android-powered smartphones are no longer in the spotlight.
This idea has so much overwhelmed the tech components that 5 tech giants plan to introduce foldable smartphones in 2019. What’s more? A new competitor has also joined the race.
Intel might be working on a Windows 10 foldable phone
After Samsung, Apple, Motorola, LG and Huawei, now Intel announces to bring its foldable smartphone. But what surprises competitors more is that Intel creation would consist of three screens. This means that this single device could be a phone, laptop and a tablet.
A recently discovered patent by Intel suggests that the company envisions three display foldable smartphone. This smartphone would operate on Windows 10. It’s not clear when Intel plans to drive the product into the market, but this three screen smartphone has successfully gained our attention. Furthermore, this foldable smartphone by Intel would also favour working with a stylus.
As a quick reminder, Microsoft recently announced that it would no longer support Windows 10 Mobile starting December 2019. Taking this fact into account, Intel’s patent suddenly becomes even more interesting.
However, let us not forget that this patent dates back from 2017. Most likely, this is only an idea that Intel quickly dismissed.
The latest announcements by the tech companies to bring forth a variety of foldable smartphones imparts a bright future of this technology. All these rumored devices are anticipated to be showcased in near future. More working space and big screens are the key features of these foldable smartphones to attract wide attention.
