The concept of foldable phones is not exactly new. In fact, to some extent, flip phones are technically considered collapsible, and companies like Kyocera have already launched similar handsets. In fact, last year, ZTE launched its own foldable phone, the ZTE Axon M and it seems that the company plans to build on it
In an interview with Engadget Jeff Yee who is the Vice President of Marketing at ZTE USA said that the Axon M had been very well received by those who bought it. He was also quoted as saying that ZTE plans to develop its efforts over time. “We will eventually come up with something that is really flexible, there are many other things we could add over time.”
Now, “really flexible” is an interesting term, especially since ZTE is not alone in their efforts. Samsung would also working on a similar device and should start at the end of the year where we will finally have a really collapsible smartphone. LG has also made some impressive progress, which with the launch of a 65-inch OLED screen that can be rolled up as a set of blinds.
We do not know when we could see anything that is really “foldable” from ZTE, but it’s good to know that we could have some variety in terms of foldable smartphones in the future, not only from Samsung.
