2019: The year of the folding smartphone
If early indications are anything to go on, 2019 is going to be the year a new form factor finally enters the smartphone market: Foldable smartphones. These types of devices have been rumored for quite some time, and now we're finally seeing their entry en masse into the market.
A couple of big players--Samsung and Huawei--plan to release folding screen devices later in 2019, but they aren't alone. Several of the devices in this gallery are coming in 2019 and 2020, and several others are rumored to be on the way--one foldable phone is already available.
