Apple May Be Playing with Samsung Displays for Its Foldable Phone

A video posted on EverythingApplePro a few days ago shows a drop test comparison between the Galaxy S10 Plus and the iPhone XS Max, which are the biggest, newest flagships you can buy from Samsung and Apple, respectively. One will be similar to the "falcon wing" design of the Huawei Mate X, while another will be a simple clamshell, as opposed to the "book" style arrangement of the Galaxy Fold. This, of course, means that when it launches in India, the Galaxy Fold could carry a significant premium over $1980 price tag in worldwide markets.

Samsung unveiled its folding phone, the Galaxy Fold, at a dedicated event earlier in February. And, just punctuate that point, the latest device to receive the demolition derby treatment is the Samsung Galaxy S10. Like the Mate X, there's no extra screen and it's thinner than the Galaxy Fold.

It is indeed common for manufacturers to plan way ahead but then again, the folding form factor is still very new and has yet to prove itself in the market.

Such foldable screens can be applied to wearable devices or other smart devices. The devices come with an ultra-wide-angle 16 MP lens and a 123-degree Field of View (FoV).

New additions to the series include a Wireless PowerShare and in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner (only on Galaxy S10+ and S10). A crease appears on the device's display after it's been folded around 10,000 times, which could be a major problem for customers. According to Bloomberg's sources, Samsung is considering offering a free screen replacement as one possible solution to the issue - as it is retailing for just under US$2,000, we certainly hope so.

Bloomberg says that Samsung forecasts producing at least 1 million foldable devices this year.

"Pre-bookings for the Galaxy S10 are twice as much as S9".

The Galaxy Fold's screen imperfection develops on a protective film covering the touch sensor bonded with the display underneath, the person said.
