s-pen pusher, 16 Feb 2019it would have creases or "stretch marks" overtime, unless the screen is made up of a material ... morenot true dude. I have had a self healing screen protector for about 18 months, its as clear glass buddy.
It's good that they're starting somewhere - foldable devices are not yet where they need to be but will only improve with time. Also, a foldable device makes sense for gaming in particular (expandable screen real-estate, larger battery).
Either this or do want to be stuck with unfoldable giant slabs with notches forever?
it would have creases or "stretch marks" overtime, unless the screen is made up of a material that has self-healing, transparent, and somewhat has the characteristics of memory foam. there are self-healing and shape retaining materials that are available now, but have only managed for these to be translucent at best.
CptPower, 15 Feb 2019They sghould stick to making standart phones this thing will not sell. yeah just stick to copying iphone or something. Innovation? get it line!

asdas, 15 Feb 2019do you even know the size of the phone? this could very well be on the small size when folded.... moreSo you just pointed out the weakest part in the sentence without even considering the whole paragraph? If you can really read properly you would know that what I pointed out is not about how small it could get but on how the hinge were designed with regards to the limitations of folding an OLED and how impractical it is when pocketted or when placed in a cramped backpack.

Anonymous, 14 Feb 2019You call that innovation? And what do you think it is? Do you realize all the tech, research, money and work that's behind the development of something like this? do you think one company develops something like this and then they give out the blueprints so every other company can do the same? each company has to do their own research, some may steal something but in the end they all have to work for this advancement to become tangible. I am sure right now these phones are not a good business but they all know that in a few years foldable phones will be the norm and they must be part of it if they wanna be relevant
Foldable phones of the past (like Moto Razr) is "pocketable" due to the fact that they became compact because they fold flat. Vivo's implementation folds-out and oleds could not be fold flat because they need to curve. This means that the folded version will have a hollow space at its joint which will be the weakest point and will break when pocketted or put in a backpack. Yes the OLEDs were flexible but the joints or hinges isn't.
I want to see more actual foldable phone leaked photos, not these unrealistic Solidworks conceptual 3D images.
