The trend in making foldable smartphone is heating up day by day. Apart from well-known phone makers like Samsung and Huawei, Sony is also reportedly developing its first foldable smartphone. The leaker also gave a prediction on the launch date of this foldable phone: in late 2019 or early 2020.
As the source leaked by Max J '@Samsung_News' suggests, prototypes of a foldable Sony will reportedly carry along some detailed specs such as a battery of 3,220mAh, a display screen made by LG, and a 10x zoom camera. However, it remains unclear whether the foldable phone comes with hybrid or optical zoom technology. As for the hardware, it seems to pack a Snapdragon SM7250 processor under the hood.
When Sony launches the foldable phone commercially, it might have a Qualcomm X50 modem and a Snapdragon 855 chipset to keep up with the future 5G network. Max J also noted that the device will get a Nautilus design, unlike the Huawei Mate X or Samsung Galaxy Fold. Of course, we all expect Sony to introduce a must-see competitor to previous foldable smartphones in the market now.
To remind, Apple has also been working on a brand-new iPad, which will boast of both 5G connectivity and foldable display. The upcoming iPad is likely to support MacBook-sized screens, ranging from 14 inches to 15 inches. Apart from that, the upcoming iPad and the rumored Microsoft's Centaurus could seem a lot similar (Centaurus is a Surface device with a dual-screen design).
