Back on Halloween, we passed along what appeared to be a nice treat to readers. Tipster Evan Blass, sent out a tweet stating that LG would unveil a foldable phone at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
This would take place ahead of the expected February or March unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy F. And that would be quite a coup for LG, considering that all eyes have been focused on Samsung.
But something has changed since Blass’ earlier message; today he disseminated a tweetsaying that based on what he has heard, the chances of LG unveiling its foldable phone at CES have been declining rapidly. The CES show is scheduled to take place starting on January 8th, running through January 11th 2019
According to a recent report from Korea’s CGS-CIMB, Samsung, Huawei and LG are expected to introduce foldable phones during the first half of 2019. In the second half of the year we should see foldable handsets announced by Oppo, Xiaomi, Vivo and Motorola. In 2020, the report says to expect a foldable device from Microsoft to be introduced during the first half of the year.
The second half of 2020 could see the first foldable Apple iPhone hit the light of day. More
