Go to reply no.
2019 is all about folding smartphones.
The folding smartphones showcased so far are targeting the high-end user demanding over £$ 2k


When do you think we will see a folding phone with decent internal specs at an affordable price range?

Lets call it the POCO FOLD

Foldable and affordable doesn't go hand in hand. At least not at this point. Maybe after a few years, when foldable screens become cheaper and more cost-effective to produce.

Also we'll see it if the trend still exists at that time period - the high price right now makes it more of a collector's item rather than an everyday device. It's interesting, but the usability is limited at this point. But technology is growing as we speak. Who knows what we'll see in a few years time. 😇

Heck no xiaomi and poco devs aren't skilled enough to pull that off properly imo. Look how many problems pocophone has. Can u imagine a foldable one which is more complicated being a phone and tablet in one? The folding feature probably wouldn't even work properly if at all.

folding technology is a terrific idea but IMHO it is way too pricey right now but as battery technology improves and you get thinner and smaller but higher capacity batteries and as the folding screen OLED screens get cheaper to manufacture then definitely ..... i reckon that by the time a Poco F5 is being prepared we may be ready for a foldable Pocophone but its still some ways in the future when folding screen technology will be available for midrange phones

right now its a rich mans gimmick ..... and it might even start disappearing and not even stick around when the next gimmick rolls around ..... and the next gimmick could be anything for example completely transparent phones or large  external carry screens that can fold which can be connected to conventional cellphones ...... but as cellphones get stronger and more powerful there are many directions that the next interesting bit of technology could lead us too and in my mind the folding cellphone isnt the pinnacle of technology - and is a pretty unimaginative direction though i do like the idea of large screens

but imagine a 17" screen or larger that can fold (only a screen) that can fold down to a size like a cellphone that can connect to your conventional cellphone wirelessly and be used a sa screen wherever you go just by taking it out of your pocket then you phone can be smaller with a much larger external screen that you are carrying about - that makes far more sense to me than a foldable phone that only doubles in size ..... whereas you could have a screen that is 4 times (or more larger) than your current one which you only use when you need the large screen and the screen on the phone is only needed for texting and making calls etc

xiaomi can do it but not poco, too expensive. The poco brand is famous for the F1, a budget friendly high end SOC phone, if they do this it will not be budget friendly
