The world of smartphones is definitely evolving for the better. With Samsung pushing the boundaries, we will soon be able to fold a smartphone like a tissue paper and put it snugly in our pockets
In all likelihood, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature an innovative foldable screen. The tech giant is rumored to be progressing fast on this foldable handset and buzz has it that it will be launched as soon as January.
The new Samsung smartphone will also come with a micro-SD card, 3GB RAM and non-removable battery. It will come in two iterations–one with Snapdragon 620 chipset and the other with Snapdragon 820.
So what will be the advantage of a foldable phone?
At first, it will be more durable. Analysts hope that even if it drops from the top of a building, it will not shatter to pieces. The phone will be almost resistant to breakage as the screen will be made of OLED (organic light emitting diode) or AMOLED (Active Matrix Light Emitting Diode).
The flexible display phones will be slimmer and lighter as well because of a no-glass technology. It has to be seen how foldable phones will perform in the practical world. Samsung seems to be the first smartphone player to kickstart this technology.
Expect these phones to be expensive in the beginning, but with time they will fit into your budget as as they will be easy to ship. Slimmer phone will take less space in the shipping containers and this will allow for more phones to be shipped, thus reducing the transportation cost.
It is predicted that 2017 will be the beginning of new year in the smartphone market, with foldable screens leading the way.
