Conclusion

Samsung showcased the concept of the foldable phone back in 2013. The first flexible display prototype by the South Korean company was called Youm. Since then, the company has been trying to bring innovative displays to mainstream devices. It was first to bring curved edges. However, the excitement about the foldable display died off over the years with many dismissing it as a prototype.

Last year, DJ Koh confirmed that the Samsung foldable device will be a tablet that could fold into a smartphone. This will give users multitasking capabilities along with easy portability. He also added that the upcoming device will not be a ‘gimmick product’ that will ‘disappear after six to nine months after it’s delivered.’

Recently, the Chinese brand called Royole launched a foldable smartphone with a flexible display, called the Flexpai. The Royole FlexPai sports a large 7.8-inch AMOLED display that drops down to just 4-inches once folded.
