After the introduction of Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, 2021 will see the likes of Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, and Google joining the Foldable smartphone business. This is according to Ross Young of DisplaySearch.
Also expected in 2021, are the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, Z Flip2, and Z Flip Lite. He also revealed that the Fold3 Lite will be a Flip variety and not a Foldable device.
According to the source, four devices are expected to come from Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi. Google on the other hand, will be introducing a Foldable phone. In his post which was shared on Twitter, Ross wrote;
Second half of 2021 is going to be really exciting for foldable smartphones. At least 3 models from Samsung, 4 models from Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi and 1 model from Google…BTW, no Z Fold Lite – Z Flip Lite. Specs for all are in our latest Foldable Report.
Just to be clear, I am saying there will be no Z Fold Lite, but there will be a Z Flip Lite.
Not much details were revealed by the source but will wait to see what these smartphone makers have in store for us since 2021 is just around the corner.
