According to data from Canalys, shipments of folding screen phones will reach 8.9 million units in 2021, a year-on-year increase of 148%. In contrast, the growth rate of the overall smartphone market is only 7%.
In fact, Samsung was the first to launch a folding screen mobile phone. On November 8, 2019, the national version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold folding screen mobile phone was officially released, setting a precedent for the domestic folding screen market. At the 2022 World Mobile Congress, Zhao Ming, CEO of Honor, made a bold guess. He believed that ordinary mobile phones and folding mobile phones will become the mainstream of smart phones, and the market for folding screen mobile phones will grow by 10 times in 2022.
The folding screen true flagship vivo X Fold debuts 50W wireless flash charging, and it will debut on April 11.
According to reports, the vivo X Fold will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 chip, with a single-core running score of 1239 and a multi-core running score of 3535. It will be equipped with 12GB of memory, run the Android 12 system, and will be equipped with 50W wireless flash charging for the first time, reaching the leading level in the folding screen industry.
The 66W single-IC serial dual-battery charging technology carried by vivo X Fold not only ensures charging efficiency, charging safety and battery life, but also guarantees full-speed fast charging, bringing users the peak battery life.
At the same time, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed on social platforms that Apple is testing a 9-inch OLED folding screen, which is expected to be launched around 2025.
Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple’s folding screen products will initially focus on medium-sized or larger-screen devices, and will eventually expand to small-screen devices like the iPhone. Therefore, Apple’s first foldable device should be a hybrid of iPhone and iPad, and may even be directly made into an iPad with a folding screen.
