Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak has shared his thoughts on foldable phones. As Huawei and Samsung are currently leading the way in innovation in this aspect, it is obvious that Wozniak is seriously worried that the Apple’s iPhone may fall behind.
Wozniak said in an interview that the company has been leading in several areas of smartphones, including Touch ID, Face ID and Apple Pay mobile payment. However, he is worried that Samsung and Huawei are leading the foldable smartphone industry. Currently, Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X have been released.
“They (Apple) are not leaders in areas such as collapsible phones, which makes me worry because I really want a foldable phone. You know this is a new technology that draws my attention”, He said.
At the same time, Wozniak also stressed that Apple always surprises people, they have been developing something behind the scenes.
Although the Samsung Galaxy Fold is impressive in many respects, it feels like a prototype with a large border and is quite thick. Huawei Mate X gives people a more modern and refined feel, but of course, the $2,600 price tag may be unacceptable to consumers.
Last week, Dutch industrial designer Roy Gilsing created a foldable iPhone concept design, the iPhone X Fold. Although there is news that the company will not launch a foldable iPhone model soon, the emergence of this concept design has made people look forward to the future iPhne.
