Over the years, Samsung has produced some successful foldable smartphones, out of which this year’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 has set a new record for Android foldables with its impressive features. What we expect next from Samsung are slidable or rollable phones.
Meanwhile, a new report suggests that Samsung has no plans to manufacture rollable or slideable phones. UBI Research CEO and chief analyst Yi Choong-hoon told The Korean Herald, “The market for foldable phones overlaps with that for slidable phones. It will be difficult for slidable phones to create its own market.”
Therefore, the analyst says, “Samsung seems uninterested in slidable phones and will focus resources on foldable phones for some time.” However, it could be possible that Samsung will introduce a rollable or slidable smartphone in the future but we might not see such innovation by the Korean company in recent years.
As of now, Samsung will continue to focus on foldable smartphones instead of attempting to try out other form factors. Also, the company wants to make foldable mainstream in the smartphone market, so it is working on improving its foldable technology.
Furthermore, Yi Choong-hoon also says that for consumers who are familiar with folding phones like the Book, sliding the screen may seem more complicated. Such devices would make a phone less user-friendly and could also drop Samsung’s profits.
But Samsung’s supremacy in the foldable market could convince other smartphone vendors to explore the possibilities of developing commercial rollable phones – especially Chinese OEMs. In regards, the analyst said –
“Samsung Display has secured an unrivaled competitiveness, especially on related patents and production know-how. It won’t be easy for Chinese rivals to compete head-on. Chinese smartphone makers may seek to launch slidable phones in an attempt to differentiate themselves from Samsung. But the market potential seems limited.”
