Hello MIUI'ers,


With the passing time, the technology is just getting better and better every day. For more than a decade, slate-shaped smartphones and devices have ruled the mobile world. But things are changing as companies focus on developing foldable tech. Instead of rectangles made of glass and metal, it may be these bendable phones that you keep in your pockets. For years, the mobile industry has been filled with rumors at one point or another about foldable smartphones.

Lately, there have been several reports mentioning different companies working on foldable phones. Although this sort of phone may seem new to many, this sort has been there for years. Many of us might have even come across prototypes and patents of phones with foldable screens.With almost all the brands showing interest in this new design, what do you think? The future of smartphone is folding?

There are endless possibilities that foldable display brings with it. To the uninitiated, the idea of a foldable phone may sound like the latest gimmick from smartphone makers, but in reality, it's anything but that. Foldable displays could actually serve a great purpose in solving major design bottlenecks that modern day smartphones face. With devices turning flexible, there are several other advantages that will be offered by a smartphone. Traditionally, a mobile device such as a smartphone or a tablet comes with glass display panels. However, to incorporate foldable tech displays, companies have started using the much lighter material such as plastic.

This offers several advantages such as: devices become slimmer and consume less space. Flexible displays are significantly lighter in weight too. Durability is one of the major advantages as these devices can take accidental drops without shattering the displays. Foldable tech can reduce battery consumption as well.As of today, we can only speculate about all these advantages foldable tech will offer us. One thing is certain: Foldable tech will revolutionize how we use our devices.

Well, smartphone manufacturers have been working on these designs for years now, and from what it looks like more work would needs to be put in to perfect this futuristic technology. However, from what it appears it won't take these tech giants much time to do that.

Nearing the end of 2017, foldable displays look all but set to make their entry into the market, but certain factors – design bottlenecks and business environment prevailing in the smartphone industry – have constantly pushed back these new age devices from taking over the smartphone market. Then there are also design issues which arise out of trying to fit rigid hardware – battery, circuit boards antenna etc – inside a phone adorned by a foldable display on the outside. However, these should only be temporary roadblocks that the smartphone manufacturers are expected to overcome once they truly take up to this new and innovative technology.

The latest bezel-less smartphones are no longer a new trend, while the edge-to-edge displays with more screen ratios have also become common now. These aspects seem nothing compared to the foldable smartphones 2018 that is said to offer a 100% increase in usable screen space.

Hence considering the growing interest of foldable smartphones, many companies are trying to bring their future devices, which can be probably folded. What's your view on this?
