Sony is Secretly Working on its own Folding Smartphone


We all are aware of the prototype of the folding phones from Samsung and Huawei. But, these are not the only companies shining while designing an innovative product. Sony is one of the Japanese multinational corporations that is apparently working on some flexible technology of its own.

The only difference is that this time it’s going to be a rollable phone rather than a foldable one. The patent application that was published last year also disclosed Sony’s interest in developing a “dual-sided transparent smartphone”, as well as a “foldable transparent smartphone”.

As per the latest news, the prototype for Sony’s folding/rollable smartphone features LG display with a roll-up screen. It sports a Snapdragon 855 chipset with a Qualcomm X50 modem for 5G connectivity along with a battery of 3,220 mAh and 10X zoom camera.

The latest prototype for Sony’s foldable/rollable smartphone features a “Nautilus Design”  The rollable screen would be provided by LG. LG has already tested its ability to build displays that roll-up with its Signature OLED TV R television.

As per the rumours, the device based on this prototype will be launched either in December or early next year. With a lot of information available on the internet, it is pretty much clear that the prototype by Sony doesn’t resolve the issues faced by the prototypes of Samsung and Huawei. Also, there is no such news by the company regarding the price of the smartphone. But, with such specifications and technology used, we can expect that the price is going to be quite high.
