To hear the story from charlatans on technology websites tell the tale, Apple is doomed soon if there is no iPhone X Fold. You know, like Samsung Galaxy Fold. Or, maybe, Huawei’s Mate X-something something.
The fact that you cannot buy a foldable smartphone should tell you that Apple is not all that far behind the foldable sensation curve. The fact that such foldable smartphone are priced at $1,980 and $2,600 respectively should tell you they will not be big sellers. So, what’s the deal?
The future is on the way and it will arrive. Of course, when it gets here it will be called the present and if we pause to think about the future and the present for too long, then it becomes the past, but it won’t matter because Apple needs a foldable iPhone. Soon.
Foldable display is the current trend for smartphones this 2019.
No it isn’t. That’s akin to saying 5G is the current trend among cellphone companies (except for AT&T’s lies of 5Ge). It’s not. It will be. It isn’t right now.
Many companies have been preparing to release their own take on this type of device, but Apple has yet to announce their own.
Many? Samsung. Huawei. And maybe somebody else. You can’t buy one yet, so it isn’t as if foldable phones are going to replace iPhone XR in 2019.
So how far behind is Apple in the competition in this foldable display race?
I’m thinking third place. Maybe 4th place?
Other companies such as LG, Vivo, Lenovo, and Xiaomi may be hot on the heels of Samsung and Huawei when it comes to releasing foldable display smartphones.
Maybe, but since you cannot buy what is not sold and hasn’t been announced, then how do you create a Top 10 List of Foldable Smartphones?
Due to this incoming surge of foldable smartphones, industry observers noted that Apple cannot ignore this trend.
Is Apple ignoring the trend that hasn’t actually started yet? Or, is Apple actively working on various foldable iPhone prototypes? It might be smart to go with what’s behind door #2, Monte.
Apple has been known to take their time in making devices as the company prioritizes innovation.
A modicum of truth from an online publication that seems to specialize in regurgitation.
Apple is behind on this trend as they’ve yet to announce their own take on this.
Actually, the trend seems to be to not make an announcement on folding smartphone plans, so Apple is just acting the way most smartphone makers are acting.
Most of Apple’s announcements for 2019 have mostly involved their focus on their services on all smart device platforms.
Actually, most of Apple’s announcements for 2019 have been financial in nature, but with highlights and nods to Services and Tim Cook’s ever
clogged up present product pipeline.
Can you see what happens when you get paid by the word to write drivel?
Most of Apple’s “steps” in making their own foldable display phones that have been circulating on the internet recently are all speculations.
Isn’t almost everything about Apple’s plans little more than speculation?
The latest iPhone generation is noticeably larger than most of the previous generations.
Alright. We’re back to facts again.
