Samsung/Google/OPPO/vivo and Xiaomi are expected to launch 8 folding phones next year

@Ross Young, founder and chief analyst of Display Search and DSCC, said that the second half of the next year is a bit exciting for the folding mobile phone market. He revealed that Samsung will release at least three models of folding screen phones, while OPPO, vivo and Xiaomi will launch a total of four models, and Google will also launch one model.

He also pointed out that the previously revealed Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Lite will not appear, but there will be a Galaxy Z Flip Lite.

IT House has reported that the Korean media The Lec has stated that Samsung will launch 3 foldable phones in 2021, and will release a cheap version of the foldable screen phone in the first quarter, combined with Ross Young’s news that it is expected to be Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Lite .

According to the current information, Xiaomi and Huawei folding screen phones will adopt a design structure similar to the internal folding main screen + external secondary screen of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The screen refresh rate is 90Hz (engineering machine), but it can be 120Hz and adopts Samsung’s latest UTG flexible glass technology. Among them, the new Xiaomi folding screen, code-named Cetus, has a 108MP camera.

In addition, the folding screen mobile phone patents of OPPO, Xiaomi and other manufacturers have been announced, and foreign media LetsgoDigital painted them into renderings. Samsung has many patents and it is still uncertain whether Galaxy Z Flip Lite will continue to use Galaxy Z Flip molds, while OPPO is expected to use metal biaxial hinges and gears for folding.
