HMD Global has been rumored for quite a while to be working on a foldable smartphone. The device should have been announced sometime in the first quarter of 2020, but it didn’t go as expected.
The rumor mill is still creating quite a buzz online, and recently it has been hinted that HMD Global has not dropped the plans of launching a foldable device yet. Here is what you should know.
Details About the First Nokia Foldable Smartphone
Nokia Anew is a reliable source that offers news about the Nokia devices. Recently, it posted on Twitter some intriguing details about a possible Nokia foldable smartphone.
The foldable Nokia device project is still alive and under development, according to tipster’s tweet. It could also be released sometime soon. Such a move makes us believe that the company is ready for some significant changes. Given that the foldable smartphones have been setting a huge trend, HMD Global has all the chances to develop a foldable smartphone and compete against other smartphone brands such as Samsung or Huawei. The Nokia foldable smartphone could also arrive with an affordable price tag.
So far, the foldable smartphones arrived in many different forms and shapes. Some devices, such as the Galaxy Fold or Huawei’s Mate X, bring a new mobile experience, featuring two screens. When you unfold them, you obtain a tablet with a generous display. And when you close it, you get a second outer touch screen.
Other devices, such as Lenovo’s Motorola Razr and Samsung’s Z Flip, bring a standard-size touch display when you open them; folded up, the smartphones flaunt a tiny screen in the outer shell showing app previews or notifications.
Recent Nokia Devices
HMD Globally revealed recently three new smartphones in the US, the Nokia C5 Endi, Nokia C2 Tava, and Nokia C2 Tennen. Similar to other Nokia devices, these new offerings come with notable highlights and affordable price tags.
