Android Foldable Screens Smart Phone Samsung announced
After years of teasing, smart, technical and speculation, it finally looks as though foldable screen smartphones are headed to market. Google’s dev department announcement followed closely on the heels of Samsung’s announcement at its own developer conference.
The Android tools will take advantage of the new display technology, which literally bends and folds, noted Stephanie Cuthbertson, director of product management at Google. The technology is based on two type of screen design. That is two screen devices and one screen device. It is depend upon user will and usage.
New devices will look like phones when folded, so they will fit into a pocket or purse. When unfolded, they will display screen continuity seamlessly. For example, as the device unfolds with an active image already in use, the image will transfer to the bigger screen without flutters or distortions of screen.
On the other hand, Official support from the Android development team means that folding phones are being taken seriously as a new type of device, said Brandon Ackroyd, head of customer insight at Tiger Mobiles. He narrates about this new technology and smart foldable device.
On Business and Market Point of view
By the concept of Consumer interest, in owning foldable devices is still an unknown factor in the technology world. It might turn out that if they build them, no one will come in them competitor in global market. While Google’s new developer support augurs well for Samsung and other manufacturers working on foldable devices, Ackroyd does not think it means foldable phones are going to be the must-have product of the future and available in future or next year.
On the basis of new survey, the Foldable smart mobile devices are not guaranteed to be successful as the technology transitions from concept to reality, observed Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT. But he is still working on it for it success. In many ways, smartphone users are the world’s largest community of lab rats, in the sense that so many are willing to follow wherever handset makers lead in terms of new features and functions,
Given the resources that are available today, manufacturers have a good shot at making foldable screen devices appealing to consumers, suggested Rob Webber, CEO of MoneySavingPro. Futuristic-looking foldable smartphones have always been a dream concept, he noted. “Smartphones have evolved dramatically since they were first invented, especially their displays,” Webber told LinuxInsider, recalling the stylus input before Apple introduced touchscreens that were able to react to the electrical impulses generated by the user’s fingers. “Now we’re at a stage where edge-to-edge displays are the norm. Some could say that foldable displays are just the next rung on the ladder,” he said.
However, it’s unlikely the new technology will be a simple transition, Webber added. It will face many obstacles before the technology advances. The key to the foldable mobile device being a success is hardware and software integration, which will take time for manufacturers to perfect. Cost also might be an issue. With the continually rising prices of new smartphones, if foldable devices are going to cost significantly more, they may appeal only to a very niche market, Webber reasoned. “Having said that, I think we are currently at an exciting stage that marks the beginning of an emerging battle between manufacturers and the start of a very flexible future,” he said.
