One time foldable phones have attracted a lot of attention from the gadget lovers. When we were shown the folding Samsung Galaxy Fold and a couple of days after it X Huawei Mate, it seemed fanstastical. Of course, all immediately drew attention to the pleat of the screen. It scared and scares so far, but I still think these smartphones are the future. Perhaps in a slightly different form – but it definitely is the future. In this tech case, the most valuable company in the world just can’t stay away, the more that smartphones generate the lion’s share of its profits. Of course, I’m talking about Apple. Rumor has it that she is already preparing their version of the convertible device, but I don’t believe that Samsung is already starting to be afraid of competition. It has at least one good reason.
- 1 Apple to do something new
- 2 Will there be a folding iPhone
- 3 Compromise Apple
- 4 Why is Samsung better than Apple
Whether Apple is ready to do something new
Last year before the launch of the first generation Samsung Galaxy Fold said: “Foldable smartphones will be the new revolution.” It’s hard to argue, but why then only two companies were able to release their folding and only device from Samsung is something more or less normal? Possible? Apple will make the next bold step. At least, it is evidenced by analysts ‘ opinions and even some leaks.
This week John Pross, which often comes interesting information, stated that Apple is preparing a foldable iPhone that will is similar to what Microsoft is trying to do with its Surface Duo.
Perhaps he made this conclusion based on the fact that Apple has already patented a lot of things in этоv direction. However, one should not forget that in big business it is a normal process and companies often patent everything that comes to mind with their engineers.
Will there be a folding iPhone
That’s why the leak should be taken with skepticism, but keep in mind that the company may not be interested in the development of their devices, because if foldable smartphones “shoot” very quickly you can lose your advantage, and then the giant will be very painful fall.
Many people think that Apple is no longer an innovator, but this is a mistake. The company is still able to create trends, which will strive the rest. Example is the iPad, the Apple Watch and the AirPods that were huge hits in their respective categories. Foldable device for the first time did not they, but the trend it has not yet become. Can cupertinos will offer something else that “go” better?
On the other hand, of course, is where Apple is catching up. For example, a wide angle module, which appeared only in iPhone 11 Pro last fall, and Android smartphones has been used for several years.
Sometimes it seems that the company can do something super cool once in a single phone, but trying to warm market, releasing new products gradually. Something that reminds a good show, in which the Director wants to keep the audience’s attention, gradually tossing him something new.
The appearance of folding phones takes away the opportunity from the manufacturers to go the way of compromise. It is necessary to give something that is vastly different from what it was, and just draw a smartphone again, forgetting about their old merits.
If Apple will again choose the path of compromise, then she can just splice the two iPhone and sell it to us at twice the price. This I would not like to, but this option seems much more probable than a release in the near future smartphone with a folding screen.
The reason for this may be that Apple is not one of those companies that will release a product with cosmetic defects. Somewhere may not be very well working OSes, but her products are always just perfect – from the box to the product itself.
Don’t want to say anything bad about Samsung, but she can afford a breakthrough product to have some cosmetic flaws. Second generation Galaxy 2 Fold, which we expect in early August, these “schools” will be perceived by the public much more aggressive. In the third generation and is any deviation from ideal would be considered a failure.
Why is Samsung better than Apple
That is why I’m pretty sure Samsung has nothing to fear from Apple. In the best case, the cupertinos will release something that is not even close to be like a Galaxy or Galaxy Fold Flip and will be questionable in my opinion the two glued phones. This is much more likely I think the fact that foldable iPhone we can not wait until, until the engineers will find a way to cheat the laws of physics and will not make the screen that will not zalamyvaniya in the open position will be perfectly flat and solid, as if it were monolithic glass.
Up to this point Samsung has all the chances to make good money on cots, but this does not mean that we should not continue to develop. On the contrary – it is necessary. Even if due to the fact that Apple all this time to spend money on development, though not releasing the product out of the laboratory. Three years later look what happens. While you just have to wait.
